Corey Lewandowski (born in Lowell, Massachusetts on Sept. 18, 1973) is an American political operative. He worked for several campaigns, including Bob Ney‘s campaign for Congress and Robert C. Smith‘s campaign for Senate. Most recently, Lewandowski served as Donald Trump‘s campaign manager, where he lived by the words “Let Trump be Trump.” On March 10, 2016, Corey was accused of forcefully grabbing Breitbart New reporter Michelle Fields at a Trump press conference. A little over a week later, Corey was seen grabbing a Trump protester by the collar. He did not face charges for either allegation due to lack of evidence and probable cause. On June 20, 2016, it was announced that Corey was leaving the Trump campaign. Conflicting reports said that he was fired, claiming a power struggle between Corey and Trump’s chief strategist and campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.
