REPORT: CNN Suspends Corey Lewandowski After Learning He’s Still Being Paid By Trump Campaign UPDATE: CNN Denies Claim, Says He’ll Be On-Air Today

Mediaite reports:

Mediaite has learned from sources that Corey Lewandowski, the former embattled campaign manager for the Trump campaign who joined CNN as a political contributor on June 23rd, has been suspended by the cable news net. The network found out that Lewandowski was still being paid by the Trump campaign, separate from his severance package that he received after leaving his work on the campaign trail.

According to sources, Lewandowski was pulled from appearing on CNN’s New Day this morning. FEC filings from the months of July and August reveal that the Donald Trump campaign gave Lewandowski’s Green Monster Consulting company $20,000 for what was listed as “strategy consulting.” Lewandowski was released from his role as campaign manager on June 20, then quickly joined CNN within days. FEC filings however reveal that the $20,000 in consulting fees were paid to Green Monster in the months following his ouster.

UPDATE: CNN is denying Mediaite’s report.
