Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski reportedly refused to answer lawmakers' questions about President Donald Trump and a meeting between Russians and the Trump campaign that took place in Trump Tower.
During what was described as "tense" testimony to the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Lewandowski was said to have followed the pattern of other Trump campaign staff -- like Hope Hicks and Steve Bannon -- who have declined to answer questions about conversations with the then-candidate, even though events that occurred during the campaign are not covered by presidential executive privilege, according to reporters who spoke to lawmakers.
For his part, Lewandowski claimed that he had answered all "relevant" questions.
