Lewandowski Willing to Accept 'Right Role' in White House

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Wednesday he'd be willing to take on a White House role following communications director Mike Dubke's resignation, but that will be a decision for Trump and his team to make.

"I've made it clear that I want this president's agenda to get done, which is tax reform and healthcare reform and all the things that he pledged during the campaign that he gets to execute," Lewandowski told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"It's very important to know that I can be helpful on the outside," he continued. "If they want me to be helpful on the inside and the right role is there, I would be willing to consider that, but you have to have people around the president who support his agenda. And they have to have that relationship with the president to understand how he communicates. He's better than the staff. He knows the media."

Lewandowski called Dubke a "very capable guy," but said he was brought in while not having a preexisting relationship with Trump.

"When you have a president who is so active, so articulate, so good at communicating with the media, sometimes you get staff who have to keep up with him," said Lewandowski. "It's much easier, I think, if you ask people who had a preexisting relationship to understand how the president functions."

Lewandowski also commented about former Trump aide Carter Page's demand to the House Intelligence Committee that he be allowed to present evidence refuting "false or misleading information" being presented about Russia and the Trump campaign.

"When I ran the campaign, our reaction with Carter Page was very, very minimal," said Lewandowski. "He was listed as a volunteer on the advisory board and the board met one time, and he didn't show up to that meeting."

Even more important, said Lewandowski, is that if Page has information that is relevant, "which there isn't," the Senate and others would want to speak with him.

"The bottom line is there's no collusion, but this is something they continue to look into," said Lewandowski. "There's no evidence that anything took place that was inappropriate or wrong. Not by the president. Not by the candidate, the campaign, or anybody else. So it sounds like their case is already starting to fall apart before it begins."

Lewandowski also on Wednesday had a warning for Republicans in Congress who won't back Trump's agenda, saying that they could be voted out in 18 months.

"If you don't want to provide that change in 18 months, we're going to have another election and the agenda that this president is going to implement will be gone," he said.
