Earlier this month, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was on Capitol Hill to be interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee. When Adam Schiff’s posse of flying monkeys tried to intimidate him, they got more than they bargained for.
Corey Lewandowski had a blunt message for Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee: He wasn’t going to answer their “fucking” questions.
Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, was the final witness in the yearlong House investigation that descended into vitriol and back-biting — ultimately resulting in two separate partisan reports that will leave the American public no closer to learning how the Russians interfered in the 2016 elections.
But Lewandowski, who agreed to come back to the committee a second time in March after initially refusing to answer questions about topics occurring once he left the campaign in June 2016, was in no mood to give Democrats anything they wanted, saying he would only answer “relevant” questions.
And, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation, the Trump confidante repeatedly swore at Democratic lawmakers to make the point he wasn’t going to talk further.
I’m not answering your “fucking” question, Lewandowski shouted at one point.
Democrats, including Rep. Jackie Speier, fired back at Lewandowski, who was not moved, multiple sources said.
Democrats said that Lewandowski wouldn’t discuss the firing of FBI Director James Comey, the White House response to revelations that Donald Trump Jr. met with Russians in Trump Tower in June 2016 and his conversations with the President, among other topics.
Republicans sided with Lewandowski, saying he had spent hours before the panel answering questions pertinent to the inquiry.
Funny, Adam Schiff didn’t leave the hearing to phone CNN’s Manu Raju with this scoop.
I’m not a Lewandowski fan. He’s obviously a poisonous personality who is perpetually on the make. That said, someone really needed to send a message to the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee that their ability to demand anything of private citizens is extremely limited.
