'We Saw a Problem': Lewandowski Addresses Porter Abuse Accusations
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Monday that he believed someone in the White House knew about abuse allegations against Rob Porter.
In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Monday, Lewandowski discussed Porter as well as the allegations about Trump's campaign colluding with Russian officials.
“We saw a problem in the White House a few months back where an individual who shouldn’t have been there continued to have access to information. And that was a failure somewhere,” Lewandowski told Cuomo, referring to Porter.
“Somebody knew. The question was what did they know and how soon did they know it?”
Porter’s two ex-wives accused Porter of verbal, emotional and physical domestic abuse all of which Porter denied. He resigned in February after the abuse allegations became public.
Lewandowski also commented on Trump’s campaign about colluding with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election.
“If anybody attempted to influence our U.S election system by coordinating our cooperating with an outside source to materially change the outcome of this election, those people should be in jail for the rest of their lives,” Lewandowski said.
Lewandowski also spoke about the allegations that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner could be leaving the administration soon.
“I think Jared and Ivanka will have the opportunity to stay inside the West King as long as they want to,” Lewandowski said.
