“We disagree with the report’s conclusion that we issued a misleading public statement regarding the extent of our engagement with (Michael) Cohen,” Novartis said of the report compiled by staff of Sen. Ron Wyden, from Oregon, that concluded the company’s relationship with Cohen was longer and more detailed than it had previously disclosed.
