Report: Trump’s Fired Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski To Join CNN

Just days after being ousted from running Donald Trump’s campaign, Corey Lewandowski has a new gig as a salaried political commentator with CNN lined up, Politico reported on Thursday.

The arrangement will make Lewandowski exclusive to CNN, an anonymous source told the site.

Lewandowski was fired on Monday after months of internal unrest in the campaign, including high-profile clashes with other top aides. He was earlier thrust into the spotlight for his physical run-in with a reporter in Florida.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
