Wow. Correlation = causation. I can’t imagine how ATT could ever get a meeting with FCC otherwise.
Wow, is like a soup of bribery and corruption…. with douchebags croutons…
Man you guys get more *desperate* every day. Mods – Way to ~~let~~ actively help a default sub become 100% politicized.
BTW, It’s totally working too. (Drumpf is finished it’s over for him).
What a huge surprise
During the election this sub was the most apolitical group of “both parties are the same,” comments outside of r/politics after Bernie lost. After 17 months of having the Republicans back in charge it seems like everyone has come to their senses and seen that one party isn’t always as liberal as you might like it to be, and the other party is a pack of whores and thieves for the highest bidder.
I thought that bribing someone is called lobbying in the USA.
Par for the course for this turd-show.
i’m sure that’s just an odd coincidence, guys!
Bought and paid for. Hardly surprising. The rich run the country with their wallets.
Maybe he’s happy they are doing a good job
I doubt this was connected… Ajit Pai was going to repeal nn regardless.
I think ATT paid Cohen to get the merger approved.
Lol, not gonna happen. The soy boys lost and the Alpha pajeet won. Get over it, losers.
I wonder what is going to happen.
I am going with nothing.
Such a great insight into the new administration!
Democracy is dying. Plutocracy reigns supreme. Gormless nihilism in our civil servants is a feature, not a bug.
But at least the *librul tears* are flowing, amirite?
What I just realized (forgive me for being behind the curve):
Michael Cohen didn’t just pay out bribes for Trump, but collected them too!
Shit Pie needs to go to jail for corruption. Right along with the rest of the administration and anyone who is complicit with them.
The best way to hold Ajit Pai to account is for members of Congress to vote for the CRA and reverse the agency’s repeal.
The Senate will vote on net neutrality in less than 24 hours. **[If you’d like to see the FCC’s repeal overturned please call your lawmakers ASAP.](https://BattleForTheNet.com)**
A whopping $600k. While that may seem like a lot of money to most people this is chump change to typical a law firms billable hours
Their interest is profit, this bill makes them huge sums of it at the expense of the people. Why would they change it? They only care about money not people
What an odd coincidence…
explain this one pedes
And next we will find out that most of AT&T’s $600k went to Ajit Pai funneled via Cohen’s shell company.
Why would they do that? There job is to line their own pockets.
And execute ashit pai
I hate to pour cold water on this, but that meeting was during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, a major wireless industry event where regulators often meet with execs from major companies. They didn’t need a fixer to set this up, they probably talked fairly regularly already. Honestly it would be strange to me if the proud new Chairman of the FCC *didn’t* meet with wireless CEOs at MWC to talk policy.
Ajit Pai already had a big speech against NN planned for the next day, so it’s not like AT&T told him to do it. And he’d written publicly to broadband and cable industry folks indicating that he planned to repeal NN as soon as possible months before, after the election. I mean, the guy also wrote a 60-page dissent when the 2015 order came out and said regularly that he would undo it if given the chance.
I’m as much for NN as anyone else, but this doesn’t seem like a conspiracy to me at all.
It looks like a bribe to me, especially juxtaposed alongside the other payments to Cohen’s company which correlate to favorable treatment by the White House Administration.
How do investigators distinguish between a bribe and a coincidence?
This is so disturbing. The orange swamp monster must go. Everyone that voted for Trump to drain the swamp should be protesting in the streets right now.
