Lewandowski Will Answer All House Intelligence Questions

(Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime")

President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Tuesday he is looking forward to taking questions from the House Intelligence Committee later this week, as he wants to provide them with information proving there was no collusion between the president's campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

"I'm happy to do that because I have said on a hundred occasions I will tell anybody what took place, which there was no collusion," Lewandowski told Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime" host Harris Faulkner. "There was no cooperation. There was no coordination, and my opportunity to go and do this in front of the House committee that's looking at it, I look forward to it very much."

Lewandowski said he does not plan to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights during his testimony, as he did nothing wrong.

"I'm going to answer every question," Lewandowski said. "I'm going to make sure they understand, if somebody hasn't already told them, as the person who was the campaign manager to the presidential candidate for almost two years, that there was no collusion."

Lewandowski insisted "we didn't, I did not interact with Russia in any way, shape or form that I know of."

The campaign, he continued, did not do "anything to materially impact the outcome of an election with an outside entity. Anybody that did should be held accountable, but it wasn't me, I can tell you that, because I don't think it ever happened other than the Clinton campaign."

He said he also thinks the quotes attributed to former chief strategist Steve Bannon in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" book were "very poor" about Donald Trump Jr. and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

"I also think that what he clarified afterwards was he was talking about Paul Manafort, someone who has an extensive amount of business in Russia or overseas and should have known better than taking that meeting," Lewandowski said.

At any rate, Bannon was not yet with the campaign, Lewandowski said, but he does think the former Breitbart executive owes Trump Jr. and Kushner an apology.

"I know both of them very well," he said. "They are American patriots as far as I'm concerned.

"Jared Kushner has left his family business to come work for the government. . . . Don Jr. is a man who I stood beside many times, and I know how much he loves his country."
