Trump’s ex-campaign chief defends him, blasts Democrats at impeachment hearing

WASHINGTON
Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and close confidant, on Tuesday stoutly defended his former boss and lashed out at Democrats during testimony to a US congressional panel considering whether to impeach Trump.
“We as a nation would be better served if elected officials like you concentrated your efforts to combat the true crises facing our country as opposed to going down rabbit holes like this hearing,” Lewandowski said in his written opening remarks to the Democratic-led House of Representatives Judiciary Committee released ahead of the hearing.
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.
