Lewandowski: The FBI Should Have Warned Trump Campaign About Manafort

2

President Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, ripped the FBI’s handling of the investigation into former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was indicted on a litany of charges on Monday.

Speaking on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.,” Lewandowski pointed to reports that Manafort had been wiretapped before and after the election by U.S. investigators acting under the authority of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

“If the public reports are true, and there was a time where Paul Manafort was under a FISA warrant before coming to the Trump campaign, why is it the FBI never reached out to me as the campaign manager, never reached out to Donald Trump and said ‘look, you might want to pause for a second and take a look before you bring this guy on board as a volunteer to hunt delegates for you’,” Lewandowski said.

“They never did that. He was under a FISA warrant, supposedly, both before and after his tenure at the campaign and the FBI never notified the leading presidential candidate for a major Republican Party race? Never notified him of a potential problem? This is a problem with the FBI if you ask me.” Read more at The Hill.

  1. Besides for the fact that Trump fired Manafort when he found out he was in middle of some financial misconducts in Russia already since 2014, the FBI wiretapped him based on Hillary’s anti-Trump dossier was illegal.

  2. John McCain’s daughter who is very involved in Republican politics, said this week that Manafort’s questionable dealings and character was well known among the leadership. The better question is why didn’t the campaign do a much better job of vetting the people hired, “extreme vetting”!
