Anyone on Donald Trump's campaign team who colluded with Russia during the campaign should "go to jail for the rest of their lives," former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told reporters Wednesday.

"I think if anybody, and I've said this, if Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, or Rick Gates or Carter Page, or anybody else attempted to influence the outcome of the U.S. election through any means that's inappropriate — through collusion, coordination, or cooperation — I hope they go to jail for the rest of their lives,” Lewandowski said during an event at George Washington University, according to the Washington Examiner.

"It's very simple. Our election process is too serious, our democracy is too important to allow people to try and try and have influence from the outside for their own gain."

Manafort, who worked as Trump's campaign manager for a brief period, reportedly offered to provide private briefings on the presidential race to a Russian billionaire with close ties to the Kremlin, according to a story published Wednesday in The Washington Post.

Manafort, who has significant deep business ties to Ukraine and Russia, is a key figure in FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential collusion. Former Trump advisers Page and Stone are also under scrutiny for their Russian connections.

Page was spied on last summer by the U.S. government on suspicion he was acting as a Russian agent. Stone, a prominent formal adviser to Trump, said he communicated with Julian Assange ahead of the WikiLeaks release of a trove of material on the Clintons.
