CNN's Trump Shill Corey Lewandowski Is Still Being Paid by Donald Trump

CNN has increasingly turned into the network that helps the Trump campaign more than any other, frequently putting Trump's surrogates and apologist on air and letting them get away with the most outrageous lies and excuses for Trump's behavior. Recently CNN came in for much criticism when they immediately hired Trump's thuggish former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski (reportedly for a five-figure salary).

Now it's coming out that Lewandowski is actually still being paid by Donald Trump, even while he takes a salary from CNN.

Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is still being paid by the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s campaign while simultaneously drawing a salary as a CNN contributor to discuss the candidate on-air, according to the network.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and host Don Lemon noted that Lewandowski is “still receiving severance from the Trump campaign” while introducing him in July 11 and July 12 segments.
