Who was behind the leak of information about Rob Porter’s alleged abuse of his two ex-wives?
A new profile of Hope Hicks in New York magazine suggests the source was Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager who was also a former boyfriend of Hicks.
Lewandowski had a “preoccupation” with the former model 15 years his junior, according to the story, which quotes an anonymous source as saying he had “Single White Male characteristics.”
The piece says an obsessive Lewandowski figured out that Hicks was dating Porter, and then looked into dirt on Porter. Which he found.
Jennifer Willoughby, Porter’s second ex-wife, had written a blog post that alluded to the abuse she suffered without naming Porter. But, according to the article, Porter repeatedly asked her to take it down. She refused. Porter told her that someone was out to get him—she thought it was Bannon, the report says, but then later realized it was likely Lewandowski.
“[Lewandowski] got wind that she was dating Porter, and he could not handle that,” an anonymous source said. “There were still raw feelings.”
The piece says Lewandowski also leaked racist social media posts made by Sam Nunberg and then embarrassed Nunberg by leaking news of his low-key firing.
