Corporations confirm payments to Michael Cohen for consulting services

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson says it was a "big mistake" to hire President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen to provide insight and access into the Trump administration after the 2016 election. Cohen received payments from several companies through Essential Consultants LLC, a consulting firm he set up prior to the election. Cohen used the corporation's account to pay adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged sexual encounter with President Trump. CBS News correspondent Paula Reid joins CBSN to break down the latest developments.
