Corey Lewandowski has received his last severance checks from Donald Trump's campaign after he was let go in June, but he's still pushing Trump's message through talking points issued by the campaign, according to a report.

Lewandowski has worked for CNN as a commentator since his departure from the Trump campaign. On Thursday, CNN's Alisyn Camerota brought up a document obtained by the cable news network that was given to Trump surrogates and outlined several talking points to discuss in the media about the presidential candidate.

"It turns out that what you all are supposed to be talking about is basically talking more about Bill Clinton's past infidelities, as well as why Hillary Clinton was off the campaign trail for four days," Camerota said. "Perhaps there is something wrong with her health. Really, Corey? Are these the things that Americans want to hear about?"

Lewandowski replied: "Well, I think if you look at the page A1 story in The Washington Post today, it talks about the infidelities of the Clinton administration and what role Hillary Clinton had specifically enabling that to take place. So these aren't the talking points of the Trump campaign; this is the A1 story, above the fold, of The Washington Post, who's talking about a 40-year history and specifically in that story references George Stephanopoulos, who at the time worked for the administration, who has quoted Hillary Clinton as saying, 'We must destroy these women who are going after Bill.'"

Lewandowski was asked about a Newsweek story that claimed Trump has illegally done business with Cuba.

"There's absolutely no facts whatsoever that this took place," he said.

He also mentioned several other issues in Clinton's past, including implications that she was involved in the murder of former White House aide Vince Foster, her email scandal, and the allegations of corruption within the Clinton Foundation.
