Sen­a­tors Wyden, Mur­ray launch No­var­tis probe: 'What Amer­i­ca has seen here rais­es the specter of cor­rup­tion'

US Sen­a­tor Ron Wyden (D-OR) has opened up an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of No­var­tis’ $1.2 mil­lion in pay­ments to Michael Co­hen, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s per­son­al at­tor­ney.

In a let­ter dat­ed Fri­day, Wyden out­lined a se­ries of big busi­ness is­sues No­var­tis $NVS had in front of the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment since it arranged the con­tract and hand­ed over about $100,000 a month in 12 pay­ments end­ing in Feb­ru­ary. Now the sen­a­tor wants a de­tailed out­line of who at No­var­tis was re­spon­si­ble for set­ting up the re­la­tion­ship and a copy of all the in­ter­ac­tions the com­pa­ny had with him — in let­ters, emails or any oth­er form.
