New Yorker and everyone else now is reporting that Trump tried repeatedly to stop the merger by asking Gary Cohn and eventually John Kelly to instruct the Justice Dept to file a lawsuit to block it.
It is reported that Gary Cohn ignored Trump's repeated request and even instructed John Kelly to ignore instructions from the president to contact the Justice Dept.
You can find the story at the New Yorker and, like I said, pretty much everywhere by now so I'm not going to link or post quotes.
Just wondering how people here feel about any of this?
Falsehood will fly on the wings of the wind, and carry its tales to every corner of the earth; whilst truth lags behind; her steps slow and solemn, she has neither the vigour nor activity to overtake her enemy. - Thomas Francklin
