CNN’s Chris Cuomo nearly lost it on former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski during a Tuesday interview.
Lewandowski was defending the Trump campaign from Carter Page’s recent testimony that he took a July 2016 trip to Moscow where he supposedly met with a Russian official. Lewandowski contended that Page took the trip as a private individual and not as a member of the Trump campaign, but Cuomo wasn’t buying that explanation.
“How is it true that nobody from the campaign had any contact or anything to do with Russian interference?” Cuomo grilled.
Cuomo argued that since Lewandowski told Page not to go to Russia as a member of the campaign, he must have known that his activities there were nefarious.
“But Chris, I said you can do whatever you want to do because you don’t work for the campaign,” Lewandowski shot back. “I didn’t know what he was doing!”
“What, did you think he was going to get ice cream?” Cuomo snapped.
