The top lawyer for drugmaker Novartis said he'll step down after hiring Trump fixer Michael Cohen's Essential Consultants as an adviser a year ago.
The one-year contract with Essential Consultants - signed in February 2017, shortly after Trump became president - saw Novartis agree to pay Cohen (pictured above) $100,000 (£74,000) per month.
"We should have just definitively parted ways with this guy as soon as we knew he was not going to be a help", said Jimenez, who claimed Cohen told him he no longer worked for Trump at the time of the contract's signing. Cohen approached former Novartis chief executive Joe Jimenez, who authorized the deal, even though Cohen is not a registered lobbyist or an expert in health care matters.
Novartis said its representatives met with Cohen in March 2017. Novartis said it stopped using Essential's services, but couldn't break the contract and paid him for the next 11 months.
