Corey Lewandowski, the former campaign manager for Donald Trump, says his replacement, Paul Manafort, is being unfairly smeared in a New York Times article which purports to show he had shady business dealings in Ukraine.

At the same time, Lewandowski told CNN on Monday, Hillary Clinton's staffers are given a pass by the media on their own questionable behavior.

"The media is now focusing on a private person who had a private business model, which no one says is anything illegal about what he did and as a matter of fact, he's saying he didn't receive the money," Lewandowski said.

"But Cheryl Mills, the chief of staff to the State Department, doesn't make the front page of The New York Times, when she's doing personal favors. She's leaving D.C. on a train to come to New York, the State Department doesn't even know about it, so she can interview people for the Clinton Foundation. This is the amazing part."

Lewandowski, now a CNN contributor, was responding to a Times article about a New York Times investigation into Manafort's work as a paid consultant to Ukraine's ruling political party.

"He mixed politics and business out of public view and benefited from powerful interests now under scrutiny by the new government in Kiev," The Times reported.

Lewandowski said: "Paul is very clear … he didn't receive the money … The New York Times is writing a staff story which has nothing to do with the candidate, but when it is a staffer of the Clinton campaign, there is a different method."
