ABC News Quotes Bryson Morgan on Michael Cohen's Relationship with Novartis

July 13, 2018, ABC News

Michael Cohen’s relationship with the Swiss drug company Novartis was more extensive than the company previously disclosed, as shown in newly uncovered emails exchanged by President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and the company’s former top executive.

. . .

According to Bryson Morgan, a Washington attorney who served as Investigative Counsel at the U.S. House of Representatives Office of Congressional Ethics, if Cohen made contact with President Trump or other federal officials, he would have been required to register as a lobbyist.

“That’s lobbying,” he said. “It’s the public’s right to know who is trying to influence the government, and through what means, and for what compensation. It’s an important mechanism for the public being able to hold their public officials accountable.”

Mr. Morgan is an attorney in the Political Law Group of Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered.
