Re: Contempt of court?
Trump's businesses have phone lines. There's no need for "indirectly"; the telcos are in a position to write sweetheart contracts that directly affect those businesses' costs.
But there doesn't have to be any present quid pro quo. I doubt Trump himself devotes any of his (meager) intellectual resources to Pai or the FCC. They haven't aroused his ire, or that of anyone who has his ear. That's really all that matters.
