Donald Trump has personally contacted former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and deputy campaign manager David Bossie to ask the pair to join the administration as crisis managers amid ongoing turmoil in the White House, Politico reports.

In a text message, Lewandowski pushed back on that claim, insisting he’s not in “talks with anyone” about joining the White House.

Lewandowski was Trump’s campaign manager until June 2016 after clashing with Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. During his time as campaign manager, Lewandowski was involved in several incidents involving the press; in March 2016 he was charged with one count of simple battery after forcefully grabbing former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. The charges were later dropped.

Last week, deputy FBI Director Rod Rosenstein named Robert Mueller as a special counsel to oversee the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. The president has denied any wrongdoing.

A veteran teacher explains why Trump is incapable of learning

Published

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
