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.
