REPORT: White House Fingered Corey Lewandowski As Behind “Smear Campaign” Against Top Aide Rob Porter

The Daily Beast reports:

On Tuesday afternoon, senior White House officials reached out to Sen. Orrin Hatch’s (R-UT) office with an urgent request. They needed the Utah Republican to put together a statement praising his former chief of staff and then-White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter. At issue was a story that was about to pop from the British tabloid, the Daily Mail, in which two of Porter’s ex-wives detailed the emotional and physical abuse they endured by him.

The White House officials told Hatch’s office that the story was the product of a “smear campaign” being orchestrated against Porter by his political enemies. Among those they pinpointed was former Trump campaign manager (and current outside adviser to the president) Corey Lewandowski, according to two sources familiar with the conversations. Reached by phone on Thursday, Lewandowski flatly denied that he had anything to do with the allegations against Porter. “I’ve never had a bad word about Rob Porter,” he insisted.

    hope hicks is FUKCING everyone!

    • Silver Badger

      Lewandowski looks to be very well hung. Granted he is also a jerk. The two are not mutually exclusive.

      • jmax

        I’d like to see this whole administration very well hung.

        • Silver Badger

          I know how to make rope. I know how to tie a noose as well.

      • kareemachan

        ..

      • TominDC

        Uh, what?

      • Strepsi

        Interesting … are you basing it on his kind of rangey figure? (there’s a type of guy that trends to the extreme of “skinny-with-a-big-dick” figure) Nose shape, and face? Or just your 7th sense (cockdar)?

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          I don’t know, but someone needs to look into this !

          • Lumpy Gaga

            We need to figure this out!

          • Strepsi

            I can confirm Silver Badger’s visual evidence, but will be convening a sample size and conducting multiple taste-tests this weekend.

        • Silver Badger

          Nose, hands and feet are proportionately large. Usually but not always, other body parts follow suit.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Either literally or metaphorically, yes.

    • Rambie

      Oh, thank you for that visual!

  • boatboy_srq

    In Drumpfenland’s defense, they probably think the world does work like this, that Porter is normal/typical and that all the bad press is just The Other Guys playing for power.

    Which perspective actually makes the situation worse.

    • Yuuuuuuuuuup. Apparently “dozens” of WH staffers don’t have permanent security clearances. How many of them lack them because they, like Porter, can’t pass an FBI background check because of shit like this?

      • Scott MB

        Over a year in to his illegitimate presidency and fucktard doesn’t have security clearances done on people working in high level positions? He doesn’t have hundreds of cabinet positions filled.

        Who would have thought being an illigitimate president would be so hard?!

      • The unbreakable, unbendable law should be, if they can’t get top secret security clearances, then they are unable to work or volunteer at the White House.

      • Chuck in NYC

        I question whether Trump would have security clearance if he hadn’t been “elected” POTUS.

        • Miji

          Absolutely not.

  • tbj5

    This reeks of Jared trying to poorly play chess and get Kelly out of the WH before an indictment gets dropped of his kushy tushy.

    REPORT: White House Fingered Corey Lewandowki

    Where has that finger been? Did it check his oil?

    • RDnDC

      Oh no… The Finger!!!

  • Boreal

    Makes sense since Corey is a shitstain.

    • Todd20036

      I read that as “… since Corey is a Christian.”

      • Boreal

        Is there a difference?

  • gaycuckhubby

    I heard Hope Hicks fingered him too

    • Butch

      Barf. But you’re right.

    • CanuckDon

      The finger of Hope.

  • worstcultever

    Oh the humanity. Oops, I mean the puerility, inanity, infantility, and dumbassery.

  • crewman

    Welcome to the reality TV administration. Back-stabbing, lies, deceit, plenty of hate, scandalous sex, doomed plots for revenge, treason, spies, racism, money laundering, a non-ending supply of hilarious side-characters filling top positions in the country’s government, transparent self-serving, bumbling relatives in positions they are comically unqualified for … all the negative elements of our American culture. I guess America got bored with inspiration, hope, decency, and stability after the Obama years.

    • But he was black.
      So it all equals out.

    • Gustav2

      “Back-stabbing, lies, deceit, plenty of hate, scandalous sex, treason, racism”

      You watching ‘Nicholas and Alexandra’ is on TCM right now?

      • crewman

        Haven’t heard of it. If this administration was a TV show, I’d change channels.
        EDIT: I just googled it, and I never heard of it, but it actually looks like it would be interesting to watch, if nothing else because it’s an old movie.

        • kareemachan

          Actually, the book is better.

          • clay

            I hear they’re going to make a whole library.

            [Sorry, I got confused if the topic was this administration, or “Nicholas and Alexandra”.]

        • Gustav2

          The movie is a Hollywood version of part of the book by Robert Massie

      • hdtex

        With the initimatable Janet Suzman…..

  • Frostbite

    Wow. Infighting, lying and backstabbing among members of the GOP. How utterly shocking!

  • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

    Well if anyone was likely to finger someone, it’d be Lewandowski,… or Trump, or any of about 4 dozen Republican Christers.

    • sadoldguy

      Fingering and republicans, I would have expected children to be involved.

    I love David Corn’s dry humor about these things.

  • mikemmiv

    I’m just here for the “fingered” comments.

  • clay

    Yeah, right. It was Lewandowsky who punched Porter’s first ex-wife while they were on vacation in Italy. It was Lewandowsky who dragged Porter’s second ex-wife screaming from the shower with his hands around her neck. It was Lewandowsky who convinced Porter’s ex-girlfriend to call his ex-wife to figure out how to get away from him. It was Lewandowsky who convinced the women to talk to the FBI and who convinced the FBI the hold-up the security clearance. It was Lewandowsky who convinced Trump to give the temporary clearance, Priebus to hire him, and Kelly to promote him. It was Lewandowsky who started all this BEFORE Porter ever “dated” Hope Hicks, because Lewandowsky was somehow jealous that Porter would someday, in the future, date Hope Hicks, back when he was still married to his first Mormon wife.

    Sounds like a wife-beater blaming it on anyone else. At least he’s assigning guilt to the correct sex.

    • GayOldLady

      Amenz!

    • kanehau

      Hi… I’m a reporter for Fox News… we would like to interview you on-air for the important information you have.

    • JCF

      Granted, it WAS Lewandowsky who was arrested for assaulting a (female) reporter [though the charges were later dropped]

  • Boreal
    • Strepsi

      LOL

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    It’s like a soap opera.

    • GayOldLady

      It is a soap opera, except it’s real life.

    • Reality.Bites

      written by idiots and performed by community theatre rejects.

      • teeveedub

        “… a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

    • Or high school with the ever changing members of the very popular groups.

    • JackNasty

      It reminds me more of dealing with drug addicts.

  • geoffalnutt

    Corey was bangin’ Hopeless, yes? It all makes sense.

  • TrollopeReader

    the knives are everywhere …..honestly, it’s more like two cliques (or more) where folks are members of at least two competing ones at the same time. Odd, and totally childlike.

    EVERYONE who works with the moron is as bad as he is ! Why anyone would fight over hicks is a mystery. She’s making her rounds and is being pimped out. Maybe she works for putin?The porn star has more class.

  • Tatonka

    Is it really a “smear campaign” if it’s just pointing out relevant facts that should have prevented Porter from getting within 100 miles of the White House??

    • Gerry Fisher

      this

      “How *dare* they tell the truth about who we really are?!!”

  • People4Humanity

    Poor choice of words⁉️

    “White House ‘fingered’ … Corey Lewandowki behind”

    • TrollopeReader

      we have about 13 months of “poor choices of words” dealing with this administration ….

    • Taylor Bixler
  • JackNasty

    The constant paranoid accusations, lies, and personal attacks emanating from the Trump administration remind me of the same behavior from a drug addicts and those that enable them.

    • kelven

      Absolutely. You don’t have this level of chaos and graft without a inherent roster of functioning drug addicts. The Dotard himself regularly displays intoxicated behavior, and no one need mention Kelly Anne Conway. Yikes!

      • JackNasty

        What’s he taking, diet pills, sleeping pills, or both?

        • kelven

          My guess is a prescription cocktail that would put Elvis to shame. Since he doesn’t drink and has access to basically anything and only sleeps a few hours a night it’s probably a roller coaster of uppers, downers and mood stabilizers.

  • Jefe5084

    Those Repthugs always diddling the boys. /s

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    First off Joe, phrasing! I mean really, “White House Fingered Corey Lewandowki”…not a sentence I ever want read, let alone visualize, ever again.

    Now, infighting is fun, fun, FUN!!!

    • charemor

      I am willing to bet that Corey would enjoy it.

    Orin Hatch. O cripes. Stake the crusty idiot over an ant hill in the Grand Staircase Escalante. He is such a major hipocritapottamus. Enricher of the rich and tormentor of the not-rich-enough.

    • Robert K Wright

      Even the ants wouldn’t touch him….

      His fake sanctimonious manner is almost as effective as syrup of ipecac except after hurling you rarely want to slap someone so hard that they fall down.

    The white house fingered Corey. But in a white straight Jesus sort of way

    • TrollopeReader

      so they Duggared him ??

      • yes b’y

        Duggary on the high seas.

  • Bluto

    As usual it’s not the perpetrator who’s at fault but those who report.

  • jimbo65

    So basically it’s a if I can’t have you, nobody else will kind if situation. Yeah, Hicks better wise up and get out the Game of Thrones while she still can. Not that I care one way or another. She’s a vapid Barbie doll.

    • Jim Gallagher-Barker

      Ironically, in the movie, the vapid Barbie doll will accidentally end up being the last one standing after the Trump administration collapses under the weight of its own foulness.

  • Rich

    “fingered”

    *giggle*

  • Talisman

    I’d rather not think about who the person in the White House is fingering.

  • Jim Gallagher-Barker

    Is it just me or does that picture of Corey Lewandowski’s long face make you think that he and Paul Ryan are doing each other in the bushes?

  • Cuberly Deux

    Worked with Hatch? Sour putrid evil attracts sour putrid evil I spose.

  • JWC

    what sneaky tricks doesn’t this WH not try to pull off They are dummer than a bunch of 4th graders

  • Renfield

    So who in the White House fingered Mr. Lewandowski? Videos of that?

  • Lewandowski wouldn’t know much about Porter. The FBI would know lots, given they interviewed his two ex wives, and probably his former girlfriend, who appears to be a political appointee in the Trump Administration. Something is up, given how Porter tried to get Willoughby to take down her post cryptically referring to her..

    The most likely culprit is Porter’s former girlfriend, given she probably has the connections, and first hand knowledge of Porter’s violence against women.

  • justmeeeee

    But Corey, you were fucking her first, right? Why deny the guy sloppy seconds?

  • Galvestonian

    GAWD, They’re likeanimals turning on each other when cornered or trapped.

    • Stogiebear

      It’s a thing of beauty and a joy to behold, no?

  • Halou

    One of our staffers is a violent sex offender and has a restraining order on him!

    Ahh, a fine person indeed. Whatever you do do NOT fire him. Actually, get a random Senator and his current girlfriend (from whom he is hiding his criminal history) to speak out in his defence. Let’s make them look like fools while we protect a known sex offender who, aside from being flagged by the media, should also have been flagged by the vetting process to get a job in the White House fucking months ago!

    • bzrd

      but, but, he followers

    To be fair, it WAS don the con who told Hope Hicks that she was the “best piece of ass Corey will ever have.” Undoubtedly, speaking from experience.

  • Professor Barnhardt

    “White House Fingered Corey Lewandowski”

    Okay, that’s enough.

    If Lewandowski was “fingered” in a “smear campaign” I’m guessing Santorum had something to do with it.

    As much as I hate a republican, I can’t stand wimp democrats. Can you just imagine if just one tenth these things had happened under Barack Obama the hurricane the republicans would have created control of congress or not? Pelosi and Shumer must go….time for new blood with some balls.
