(National Sentinel) Frustration: Former 2016 Trump campaign official Corey Lewandowski said Thursday he was angered by the language and badgering used by Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee during a second round of questioning in March.
In fact, Lewandowski said at one point he swore at Democrats, telling them, “I’m not answering your f**king questions.”
The former campaign manager was the final witness in the committee’s probe into alleged Trump-Russia collusion and Russian meddling in the 2016 election. His appearance before the committee in March was his second.
During his first interview, Lewandowski reportedly refused to answer questions that pertained to things that happened after he left the campaign in June of 2016.
His latest appearance seemed to be more of the same, he said, and as he reportedly swore at Democrats and told them he would only answer “relevant” questions.
The former Trump official did not deny he used colorful language, but he blamed Democrats for using expletives first.
“I had to repeat on multiple occasions that there was no collusion, cooperation or coordination because the Democrats couldn’t understand my plain English way of speaking,” Lewandowski told CNN. “The language they used in the committee was appalling. I’ve never heard such language used before.”
“I felt the need to respond in kind,” he added.
