Corey Lewandowski Abruptly Resigns After Reports Surface He’s A Foreign Agent


Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager even Donald Trump’s children knew was too scandalous to be the face of a presidential campaign, is losing the lobbying job he misused in order to gain access to the White House.

According to Bloomberg Politics:

‘Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, is leaving Avenue Strategies amid a spate of negative publicity, saying he is concerned that he’s lost control over the lobbying and political consulting firm he co-founded after the 2016 election.’

Lewandowski states that he’s “concerned about” his “reputation” after his business partner, Barry Bennett, as well as other operatives within the firm have used his name and former status as Trump’s campaign managers to make deals with foreign businesses. Lewandowski claims that he did not grant permission for the use of his name.

Bloomberg also notes that Politico reported on April 28, 2017 that:

‘An affiliate of Avenue Strategies called Washington East West Political Strategies had been soliciting business in Eastern Europe and elsewhere by offering access to Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other top administration officials. Lewandowski said Thursday that he hadn’t authorized the creation of Washington East West, nor been informed about it.’

Once you’ve been declared too horrible to continue on as Trump’s campaign manager, do you really have a reputation left to protect?
