Former campaign manager to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has reportedly been suspended from his job as a political commentator for CNN.


Mediaite.com said Wednesday morning that Lewandowski was pulled from appearing on New Day after FEC filings showed that he is still receiving payment from the Trump campaign.

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."
