On Thursday's "CNN Tonight with Don Lemon," Democratic panelist Bob Beckel put pundit Corey Lewandowski on the spot for his vested interest in positively portraying GOP nominee Donald Trump — for whom he'd previously served as campaign manager.
"Corey, let me ask you a question," Beckel said. "Have you once since you left that campaign, one time — I'm a political analyst, I get on you, and I attack Hillary Clinton when I think it's necessary — have you said one thing negative about Donald Trump?"
"Bob, if you've seen me, I absolutely have," Lewandowski responded before Beckel cut him off.
The campaign's latest FEC filings revealed it paid Lewandowski — via his consulting firm, Green Monster — $20,000 in July for "strategy consulting," despite having ousted its former-manager in June. Lewandowski even attended Trump's rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Thursday.
In light of this, at least some have alleged Lewandowski's job at CNN presents a conflict of interest.
