Lewandowski: House Judiciary Committee has no reason to hold me in contempt

OAN NewsroomUPDATED 11:12 AM PT — Wednesday, September 18, 2019
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said there is no reason for him to be held in contempt after his appearance on Capitol Hill.
While speaking to CNN Wednesday morning, he argued he answered every question from the House Judiciary Committee that he had an obligation to answer. This caused Lewandowski to clash with the show’s host over his refusal to answer certain questions about his interactions with the president and his senior staff due to claims of executive privilege.

Lewandowski said despite his “five-or-six hour testimony” Tuesday, “he’s happy to come back and answer more questions for Congress.”
