Rupert Murdoch twice discussed CNN with AT&T CEO

Rupert Murdoch twice discussed CNN with AT&T CEO

Gary Ginsberg has reportedly replied to Jared Kushner that Time Warner, CNN's parent company, would not be able to do that, The Wall Street Journal said, citing its sources. The Department of Justice said it does not comment on pending investigations, but that it was "committed to carrying out its duties in accordance with the laws and the facts".

Trump was asked about the dispute during his trip to Asia. "That probably ends up being litigation; maybe not".

Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, said in a separate statement that Trump "did not speak with the Attorney General about this matter, and no White House official was authorized speak with the Department of Justice on this matter".

The revelation of those comments came days after reports that the Department of Justice was pressuring Time Warner to sell CNN before approving the telecom giant's merger with AT&T.

Some Democratic lawmakers are calling the uproar over the cable news network political. "Throughout this process, I have never offered to sell CNN and have no intention of doing so", he said. Then, he concluded: "I didn't make a statement, but I did make a statement long before".

The decision would be made by Delrahim, who was nominated by Trump and joined the Justice Department's antitrust division in September after being confirmed by the Senate.

Trump on Saturday also maintained he had not been involved. As president, Trump has often blasted CNN for its coverage of him and his administration, disparaging it and its reporters as "fake news". This way, at least you can get your word out. As the New York Timesnoted, Delrahim insists any decision would be made on the basis of protecting competition in the market rather than politics, though the intervention is a surprise given his "more free-market-oriented Republican views". As a candidate, Trump vowed to block the deal shortly after it was announced, but has not addressed the issue publicly as president.
