While America is up in arms about the passing of TrumpCare today, some interesting information surfaced about Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
According to Bloomberg,
‘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.’
Politico reported, ‘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.’
“Whether Corey Lewandowski is just engaging in business as usual or actually going further, it definitely has a pervading swampiness to it that has become the new normal in Trump’s Washington,” Lisa Gilbert, vice president of legislative affairs for the government watchdog group Public Citizen said when Lewandoski abruptly resigned said.
Moreover, according to Politico, Lewandowski and his team have been working with and proposing political figures for governments from multiple Eastern European countries, including Albania and Kosovo.
Barry Bennett, who co-founded Lewandowski’s firm, said on future of working with foreign governments, “We want to do a lot of foreign elections, and I think we will. I don’t believe East West has even offered anyone a contract yet.”
However, Lewandoski claims that he is not a lobbyist. But what could he be worried about? If history has taught us anything it is that when people resign there is typically a dark reason behind it. What is Lewandoski hiding?
