Fox News Host Goes Off on Cohen’s ‘Influence Peddling’: He Should ‘Pay Back His Swamp Fees’ (Mediaite)
Fox News host Steve Hilton blasted Michael Cohen on Sunday night, accusing President Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer of “influence peddling” and thwarting the administration’s attempts to drain the swamp.
Hilton — an Oxford-educated former strategist for U.K. prime minister David Cameron who spends much of his time bemoaning the “global elites” — issued a fiery diatribe against Cohen in light of revelations that he received millions in payments from companies seeking “consulting” on the new administration.
The Fox News host detailed Cohen’s influence peddling, explaining how he approached companies like drug giant Novartis and telecom company AT&T with a “pay to play pitch.”
