Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, approached Ford Motor Co. to offer counsulting services last year. But the offer, which emphasized Cohen’s close connection with the president, was quickly rejected, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Those interactions in January 2017 are now part of an ongoing investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s team has asked Ford for details regarding the automaker’s correspondence with Cohen and has interviewed Ford’s Washington D.C.-based vice president of government and community relations, Ziad Ojakli. Cohen’s pitch was made via an informal call to Ojakli, the Journal reported.

Ford declined to comment Saturday.
