Former Trump Campaign Manager Tweets Out NY Times Story Accusing Successor of Corruption
In a move evidently intended to embarrass his replacement, former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski shared a New York Times story that raised serious questions about current Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort‘s dealings with Ukraine’s former pro-Putin president.
Lewandowski, now a CNN contributor, tweeted out the story Sunday night.

Lewandowski’s social media shading comes a month after he publicly told reporters that if any Donald Trump campaign staffers approved Melania Trump‘s partially plagiarized convention speech, they ought to be fired. Lewandowski’s comments came after it was already reported that Manafort had signed off on the speech.
Reports from inside the campaign indicated that the two frequently butted heads when Lewandowski still worked there. According to Fox News, in the end it was Manafort who forced out Lewandowski by threatening to resign unless Trump fired his rival.
