President Donald Trump's first campaign manager said in a new interview he did not see buses bringing people from Massachusetts across the border to New Hampshire to illegally vote on Election Day, throwing water on the Trump camp's claim that said otherwise.
Corey Lewandowski appeared on the CNN podcast "The Axe Files" and told host David Axelrod he does not necessarily buy the claim voter fraud occurred in New England via the busing of people.
"I live on the border, I didn't see buses coming across the line, to say, 'hey we've moved up from Massachusetts,' and candidly, most of the people that actually move in from Massachusetts move into the southern tier of the state of New Hampshire, and that happens to be the most conservative area of the state, the Rockingham and Hillsborough County area right along the border," Lewandowski said. "So, I don't think you have that."
Lewandowski is from Lowell, Mass. and lives in New Hampshire. He served as Trump's campaign manager when the campaign officially began in June 2015 and split with the campaign a year later.
Lewandowski said the New Hampshire election laws need to be changed, however, because they bring the potential for voter fraud. To be a New Hampshire citizen, a person only needs to live in the state for one day. Citizens are also allowed to register to vote on Election Day.
"The law in New Hampshire is very unique and needs to be changed, because the law stipulates in the state of New Hampshire, if it is your frame of mind on Election Day that you are a New Hampshire resident, then you're entitled to vote there," he said. "That means you could be there one day, one week, one month, one year."
