🚨 NEW: Trump is Bringing Back Ultra-MAGA Creep Corey Lewandowski to Run the Republican National Convention

In response to Donald Trump’s campaign bringing back Corey Lewandowski to run the Republican National Convention, DNC Rapid Response Director Alex Floyd released the following statement: 

“Corey Lewandowski is just the latest one of Trump’s crooks, convicts, and conspiracy theorists who is being welcomed back into Trump’s inner circle. Lewandowski is a disgraced second-rate hack with a background that includes criminal charges for battery against a journalist and a police complaint for sexual assault, but Trump is so desperate for anyone willing to work for a loser like him that he is once again scraping the bottom of the MAGA barrel.”

Corey Lewandowski has been tapped by Donald Trump’s campaign to help run the Republican National Convention — despite facing battery charges and allegations of physically assaulting a journalist.

Politico: “Corey Lewandowski is back in Trump’s orbit — and working with the RNC”

“In a filing Monday with the Federal Election Commission, the RNC reported paying the money to Lewandowski’s firm on April 24 for ‘management consulting.’

“No stranger to controversy, Lewandowski was Trump’s first campaign manager in his 2016 presidential bid. He has served in and been forced out of other roles in Trump’s sprawling political operation, including being removed from a top post with a pro-Trump super PAC in 2021.

“Lewandowski at the time was accused by a top Trump donor’s wife, Trashelle Odom, of making unwanted sexual advances towards her while at a Las Vegas charity dinner. He was later charged with a misdemeanor, but entered an agreement with prosecutors to have the charge dismissed in exchange for completing impulse control counseling, community service and paying a fine.”

New York Times: “Aides to former President Donald J. Trump are discussing getting Corey Lewandowski, Mr. Trump’s former campaign manager who was shoved out of a pro-Trump super PAC in 2021, involved in the Republican National Convention, according to two people briefed on the discussions.”

Politico: “Lewandowski was also charged with battery in 2016 after yanking the arm of a reporter, Michelle Fields, at a Trump campaign event. The charges were later dropped, but Lewandowski, who at the time was serving as Trump’s campaign manager, claimed the incident never happened before video emerged confirming that it did.”

Trump can’t stop surrounding himself with election deniers, conspiracy theorists, and convicted felons.

“Sidelined characters from former President Trump’s past campaigns — ‘crazies,’ some of his top advisers call them — are reattaching themselves to his inner circle now that he’s locked up the Republican nomination. … ex-advisers, conspiracy theorists and convicted felons are now knocking on the campaign’s door — and some are getting in.”

New York Times: “Former President Donald J. Trump recently told aides to hire Laura Loomer, a far-right and anti-Muslim activist with a history of expressing bigoted views, for a campaign role, according to four people familiar with the plans. Mr. Trump met with Ms. Loomer recently and directed advisers to give her a role in support of his candidacy.”
