at&t chief lobbyist out after hiring of trump attorney cohen

The chief lobbyist for AT&T is leaving the company after overseeing a $50,000-per-month contract for President Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen to serve as a political consultant. In a memo to employees, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said the company made a “big mistake” in hiring Cohen as a political consultant. While everything the company did was legal, Stephenson said that the association with Cohen was “a serious misjudgment.” Stephenson noted that the company’s reputation has been damaged and that the vetting process used by its team in Washington “clearly failed.” The Washington team had hired Cohen under a one-year contract that paid $50,000 a month. Stephenson said Bob Quinn, senior executive vice president of the external and legislative affairs group, “will be retiring.” The Justice Department is seeking to block AT&T’s $85 billion purchase…

senate democrats push to reinstate ‘net neutrality’ rules

Don’t expect the House to go along with the Senate’s expected passage of legislation that would revive an Obama-era rule requiring equal treatment for all web traffic by internet providers. Opponents such as Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., said the Senate’s vote later Wednesday on a measure reversing the Federal Communications Commission’s decision that scrapped the “net neutrality” rule amounted to “political theater” with no prospects of approval by the GOPcontrolled House. Net neutrality prevented providers such as AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from interfering with internet traffic and favoring their own sites and apps. Telecommunications companies lobbied hard to overturn the 2015 rule, saying it discouraged investment and innovation. The FCC said in repealing it last December that it was simply restoring the “light-touch framework” that has governed the internet for most of its…

trump to sign order to reform us infrastructure technology

President Donald Trump is signing an executive order to try to reform the federal government’s confounding information technology structure. The White House says Trump will order agencies to strengthen the roles of their chief information officers, requiring that they report directly to the agency heads. The order being signed Tuesday was developed by the Office of American Innovation, which is led by Jared Kushner. It is being cast by the White House as an effort to bring private-sector management principles to government. The White House says it is hoping to attract private-sector talent to the empowered roles and to give technical experts oversight of technical decisions. The White House says the federal government spends roughly $90 billion annually on infrastructure technology, most of which goes to support antiquated systems.…
