Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has found his way as an all-purpose sherpa in Trump’s Washington, a wise man counseling corporate clients and foreign countries through the morass of the new administration.

He’s received interesting offers in the course of that work — but none more interesting than a request from a potential client, who wanted President Donlad Trump to tweet about him.

The New York Times ran a long form piece Wednesday about the evolving nature of influence-peddling in D.C., where a new echelon of Trump alumni and assorted hangers-on have assimilated into, or in some cases dislodged, the lobbying shops and consultancies that make up “permanent Washington.” Lewandowski hawks access and influence from his perch at Avenue Strategies, a new government-affairs outfit he cofounded after the election.

A potential client approached the firm with an unconventional offer, by the Times’ telling. The unnamed source offered Lewandowski $250,000 just to get Trump to tweet about him.

It doesn’t appear that a tweet ever came.
