Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski made an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday where he called for the immediate shutdown of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“What is Bob Mueller doing?” Lewandowski asked.” “I don’t even understand what his role is anymore because everyone has said there is nothing here and so this investigation should end immediately.”
There’s more than enough evidence to believe that Russia interfered in the election to help Trump win and to also believe that some Trump campaign officials had improper contacts with Moscow, yet multiple people in Trump’s circle are trying to guide the American public the other way.
Now, according to multiple reports, the special counsel has expanded the investigation to see whether Trump tampered with an FBI investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
According to former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump last month, Trump asked him to drop the Bureau’s investigation into Flynn.
Lewandowski used David Brooks, who wrote an op-ed that ran in The New York Times a day earlier, as reference as to why the special counsel needs to be shut down.
“This is amazing — David Brooks is not a Trump supporter, he’s truly a Trump hater and if you have someone as liberal as him from the failing New York Times coming on and saying maybe, just maybe, the people in Washington should understand this,” Lewandowski said. “There is no collusion. There is no obstruction. There was no communication. It’s time to move on from this.”
Lewandowski does not work for the Trump White House, but he does make frequent visits there. Trump also relies on him to defend him on national television.
