Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was interviewed Wednesday in closed session by staffers of the Senate Intelligence Committee, the latest former associate to President Donald Trump to be queried as part of investigations into Russia's meddling in last year's election.

Lewandowski's interview was first reported by CNN, citing "a source familiar with the matter."

The committee has already questioned Paul Manafort, who succeeded Lewandowski as head of the Trump campaign in June 2016.

Lewandowski, 44, a former CNN commentator, has said that he did not have any dealings with Moscow — and if any did occur, Trump did not know about it.

In addition, Lewandowski signed off on a trip to Moscow in July 2016 by Carter Page, another former Trump campaign adviser, Politico reports.

He has denied reports that he interacted with allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that he went to the Kremlin as a private citizen.

Page said in April that he would not cooperate with the committee's inquiry.

A spokesman for Intelligence Committee Chairman Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina declined to comment on whether Lewandowski met with staffers.

Lewandowski, who now works for a pro-Trump super PAC, also did not return requests for comment.

Other investigations into Russian involvement in the election are being conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Intelligence Committee — and the Justice Department, which is being overseen by special counsel Robert Mueller.
