CNN hires fired Trump campaign manager
NEW YORK - CNN has hired former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a commentator on the campaign, only days after he was fired by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
A network spokeswoman, Barbara Levin, confirmed the hiring but offered no other details on Thursday. The move was first reported by Politico.
CNN has used a handful of Trump surrogates as commentators in its political coverage, most prominently Jeffrey Lord during prime-time primary nights.
Lewandowski may be limited in what he can say on the air. The Associated Press has reported that Trump requires nearly everyone working in his businesses and presidential campaign to sign nondisclosure agreements preventing them from releasing confidential or disparaging information about him.
