CNN denies that it has suspended Corey Lewandowski
Former campaign manager to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has reportedly been suspended from his job as a political commentator for CNN.
More on this story as it develops.
UPDATE: CNN has issued a statement denying that Lewandowski has been suspended, in spite of the fact that he continued to draw a salary from the Trump campaign through July and August.
Political reporter Ryan Parker said, “A CNN spokeswoman just told me Corey Lewandowski has NOT been suspended by CNN. ‘He will be on our air later today.’”
Michael Calderone confirmed this in a tweet, “CNN spox just told me Lewandowski has not been suspended, as being reported. Still trying to figure out what exactly is going on.”
