Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski "knew Michael [Cohen] was going to become a problem," which is why he "warned everybody" Cohen "was not somebody who we wanted at the campaign."
"I didn't like to work with Michael," Lewandowski told "Fox News Sunday." "I didn't like to interact with Michael, and that's why he had no role in the campaign, even though he wanted one.
"I was very clear when I was in charge of the campaign, Michael was not somebody who we wanted at the campaign. He would go out and make statements that we had to walk back afterwards because he would say things which were factually untrue. And I warned everybody at the organization that Michael was going to become a problem."
Lewandowski's rebuke of Cohen's illegal activities came with a caveat they had "nothing to do with" Trump.
"What Cohen has now pled guilty to has nothing to do with the Trump Campaign or the Trump Organization," Lewandowski said. "This is Michael Cohen not filing taxes."
Lewandowski called Cohen the Trump Organization's "self-described fixer," but not one for the campaign.
"Michael was very good at certain things and one of the things he was very good at, and we've now seen it, is intimidating people," Lewandowski said.
