Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Richard Blumenthal of CT, and Ron Wyden of OR sent a letter to AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson asking questions about the $600,000 in payments the company made to Cohen past year.

The three senators have 16 questions for Stephenson about who at AT&T set up the contract with Essential Consultants, what its timeframe was, how the payments were structured and who proposed them, and how AT&T determined that Cohen "was qualified to advise on policy matters".

Were any laws broken by either Cohen or these corporations giving money to Cohen? "If so, did any of those discussions involve a potential work by, or a contract with, Essential Consultants and Mr. Cohen?" the senators asked.

Meanwhile, Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti outed Cohen on Twitter last night. Unnamed sources later told CNBC that the amount could be closer to $600,000. It hasn't commented on how much was paid to Cohen's firm.

Still, Stephenson emphasized that the company's dealings with Essential Consultants were all above board and perfectly legal. For what? CNN said AT&T divulged Cohen "approached" Quinn's Washington office of AT&T during the post election transition period for insights into the administration.

Oliver continued: "Tonight, let's ignore all of that and instead focus on the busy week for one person in particular, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's personal lawyer and a lawyer so shitty he made Trump say, 'I need someone good, get me Rudy Giuliani'".

Wyden has also contacted Ken Blanco, who directs the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, requesting further information on transactions between Novartis and Essential Consultants, stating "the size and timing of these payments to Cohen, who has no apparent expertise in the healthcare industry, merit additional scrutiny".

Asked about Sadler's comment, a White House official said, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation, and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".
