    It's True: Any tree you shake a tree in the Trump Forest, a F-ing RUSSIAN falls out :rolleyes-41:

    President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, maintained a far more extensive relationship with drugmaker Novartis than previously disclosed — including pitching the company on an opportunity that would benefit a Russian-linked investment firm — according to a report issued Friday by Senate Democrats.

    Dozens of emails and other documents obtained by the Democrats showed that Cohen worked with Novartis for six months longer than the company said in May, a period during which he pitched executives on investing in a pharmaceutical company backed by investment firm Columbus Nova. The firm is linked to Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, who was sanctioned last month over Russia's meddling in the U.S. election.

    Novartis, in turn, sought to influence the Trump administration’s effort to lower drug prices, sending a list of policy ideas that Cohen promised then-Novartis CEO Joe Jimenez he would pass along to administration officials, according to emails obtained by the Democrats. Many of the ideas Novartis provided to Cohen ended up in a Trump blueprint to address drug pricing.​

    Drugmaker's ties with Michael Cohen more extensive than detailed, report says
