President Donald Trump’s former election chief declares ‘there’s one campaign and only one campaign’ that participated in collusion.
“There’s one campaign and only one campaign” that colluded with Russians in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and it wasn’t President Donald Trump’s, Corey Lewandowski claimed during a Monday interview on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”
“It’s very clear. I was there before Donald Trump ever came down that escalator. We never colluded with Russians,” said Lewandowski, who managed the Trump campaign in its early months. “There’s one campaign and only one campaign that has admitted to taking $5 million of their campaign money, going and hiring a British spy to go and put a false dossier together — and it’s the Clinton campaign.”
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign committee and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the Trump-Russia dossier, characterized by former FBI Director James Comey as “salacious and unverified.” The payments went through a Washington, D.C., law firm with strong Democratic ties.
