BREAKING: White House Denies Democrats’ AT&T-Time Warner Records Request 

The White House has reportedly denied a records request by House Democrats involving the AT&T-Time Warner merger.

In a letter to Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and antitrust subcommittee Chairman David Cicilline (D-R.I.) sent Monday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone appeared to claim executive privilege, calling the documents “protected communications.” The requests came after a New Yorker report that President Trump directed aides to pressure the DOJ to try and spike the merger.

Lawmakers had requested the documents to be provided by late March.
