Not only is CNN “employee” Cory Lewandowski still on the Trump payroll, but he is also in daily contact with the Republican presidential nominee.
CNN had a problem after campaign finance documents revealed that Cory Lewandowski was still being paid by Donald Trump.
The problem has grown now that ABC News reported that Lewandowski is still closely involved with the Trump campaign:
Now, a few weeks and a lucrative cable network contract later, Lewandowski is back in the fold, according to multiple campaign sources. They describe Lewandowski’s relationship with the candidate as “stronger than ever.”
Each day, Trump wakes up, usually in his Fifth Avenue penthouse, and has a routine round of calls, sources say, that includes his campaign leadership (which has changed in recent weeks), his children, some close allies and someone else quite frequently: Lewandowski.
“They talk almost every day,” one senior-level campaign staffer said, requesting anonymity.
The ABC report is especially damaging because it states that Trump has ordered that Lewandowski is given full security clearance at any rally he attends and that the former campaign manager was “running the show” at a recent Trump rally in New Hampshire.
CNN’s credibility as a journalistic organization is damaged every time they put Lewandowski on the air without disclosing his current ties to the Trump campaign.
Donald Trump has a person on the inside at CNN who is using the news network’s programming to push pro-Trump propaganda.
The network needs to fire Cory Lewandowski immediately, or viewers should vote with their remote controls and turn off CNN.
