Ex-campaign chief Lewandowski 'excited' to defend Trump at impeachment hearing
Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and close confidant, said he was “excited” to have an opportunity to defend his former boss in testimony later on Tuesday to a Democratic-led U.S. congressional panel considering impeaching Trump.
The White House on Monday told Lewandowski not to discuss conversations he had with Trump after he became president including an exchange that Democrats view as evidence that Trump committed obstruction of justice by trying to interfere in a federal investigation and may need to be impeached.
Lewandowski is set to become the first impeachment witness to appear before the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee since former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified in July about his inquiry that detailed Russian 2016 election interference and Trump’s actions to impede the investigation.
