One of Donald Trump's former campaign mangers reportedly refused to answer any questions posed by the House Intelligence Committee that center on the time since he left the campaign.
As flagged by Bloomberg's Billy House on Twitter, Trump's controversial former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski wouldn't answer questions pertaining to the time after he was fired from the Trump campaign in late June 2016. He also would not answer questions about whether he'd spoken to the president about his testimony.

As CNN's Manu Raju noted, Lewandowski's refusal to answer the House Intelligence Committee's questions are in direct contrast to the testimony of Rick Dearborn, the White House's deputy chief of staff for legislative affairs who also testified before the committee on Wednesday. The former campaign manager also said he was "unprepared" to answer the questions the panel posed, and would return to answer them more thoroughly.
