Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski started a lobbying firm and according to Politico, he promised access to Trump, Vice President Pence and other top administration officials to gain clientele.
A document given to an Eastern European politician by the firm, Washington East West Political Strategies, promised access to “well-established figures,” which includes Trump and Pence.
Barry Bennett, co-founder of the firm and a former Trump campaign adviser, said that he was unfamiliar with the document that was provided to Politico.
Bennett said that lobbying and access to administration officials is a “relatively small portion” of their work.
“90 percent of our business has nothing to do with access,” Bennett told Politico. “Ninety percent of our business has to do with being a sherpa — who to call, what to do. We don’t take people in to see the president or the vice president.”
