T-Mobile hired a lobbying firm tied to former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, the telecommunications company said Friday.
In a statement to NBC News, the telecommunications company said it hired Turnberry Solutions in August for its perspective "on a variety of topics, including the pending transaction." It retained the lobbying firm as part of an effort to secure federal approval for its merger with Sprint, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.
"Given the scope and complexity of our business, our Government Affairs team works with a number of political consulting firms to help navigate the numerous federal government and regulatory matters that are relevant to us. This list of agencies, which is publicly available, includes Turnberry Solutions which we hired last August," a T-Mobile spokesperson said.
