Corey Lewandowski, President Trump’s former 2016 campaign manager, on Sunday said he put out warnings that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was “going to become a problem” and that Mr. Cohen was never part of the campaign when he was there.
“I didn’t like to work with Michael. I didn’t like to interact with Michael, and that’s why he had no role in the campaign even though he wanted one,” Mr. Lewandowski said on “Fox News Sunday.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I warned everybody at the organization that Michael was going to become a problem,” Mr. Lewandowski said. “I spent as little time with Michael Cohen as humanly possible. He was never part of the campaign when I was there.”
Asked why Mr. Trump trusted Mr. Cohen as long as he did given such warnings, Mr. Lewandowski said Mr. Cohen was “very good” at “intimidating people.”
Like Mr. Trump did last week, Mr. Lewandowski also claimed that Mr. Cohen’s charges didn’t have to do with the Trump campaign.
The Hill further reports:
He went on to slam the president’s former “fixer,” saying that he had denied Cohen a role in Trump’s campaign.
“There have been reports that you privately tried to get the president to back away from [Cohen],” Fox News host Martha MacCallum, who was standing in for Chris Wallace, said.
“Michael was very good at certain things and one of the things he was very good at, and we have now seen it, is intimidating people,” Lewandowski responded.
“I didn’t like to work with Michael, I didn’t like to interact with Michael, and that’s why he had no role in the campaign, even when he wanted one,” he continued. “I was very clear when I was in charge of the campaign, Michael was not somebody who we wanted at the campaign. He would go out and make statements that we had to walk back afterward because he would say things which were factually untrue. I warned everybody at the organization that Michael was going to become a problem.”
