Ultra-Liberal CNN hires failed Trump campaign manager Lewandowski… as political commentator
Three days after being ousted from the Donald Trump campaign, Corey Lewandowski is a political commentator for CNN.
On Thursday Lewandowski joined CNN’s stable of political experts who appear across the channel’s newscasts and talk shows.
For CNN executives, the hiring was a coup. Lewandowski brings first-hand experience running a historic presidential campaign.
But his hiring was also highly controversial, even within the newsroom, in part because he has a reputation for being hostile toward journalists.
There are also swirling questions about whether Lewandowski is still bound to Trump somehow.
Like other Trump employees, he signed a non-disclosure agreement that ensures he will not share confidential information.
The agreement likely included a “non-disparagement clause,” impeding his ability to criticize Trump publicly.
