Remember the early summer of 2016, when all the top news stories were filled with the war between Paul Manafort and Corey Lewandowski? Of course, we know that Lewandowski was ousted by the Trump family in favor of Manafort to shepherd the campaign into the Republican National Convention. But Corey never lost his shine in Donald Trump’s eyes. Manafort, however, was jettisoned as excess baggage due to his Russia connections.
Now vengeance is being served stone cold by Lewandowski.
“I think if anybody, and I’ve said this, if Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, or Rick Gates or Carter Page, or anybody else attempted to influence the outcome of the U.S. election through any means that’s inappropriate – through collusion, coordination or cooperation – I hope they go to jail for the rest of their lives,” Lewandowski said at George Washington University on Tuesday, according to the Washington Examiner.
It’s looking more and more like Paul Manafort is “looking up at the the underside of a bus” as Rick Lowry put it.

Lewandowski reportedly defended Trump during his appearance at GWU on Tuesday, saying that, while he was on the real estate mogul’s campaign, he never witnessed anything that would suggest coordination with the Russians.
“Never ever ever ever did I hear him say, utter, insinuate anything to do with Russia,” Lewandowski said, according to the Examiner. “He never instructed me or anybody in my immediate presence to ever be involved with Russia, never mentioned Russia collusion, coordination, cooperation, or anything of that nature ever.”
