Alisyn Camerota and Corey Lewandowski had a very heated exchange of words today after the CNN host accused Lewandowski of dishonesty with the media.
While Corey Lewandowski testified before the House Judiciary Committee yesterday, he argued that he had “no obligation to be honest with the media.”
Alisyn Camerota then asked Lewandowski about this, saying “You only feel the obligation to tell the truth when you’re under oath?”
Lewandowski then hit back by commenting on CNN’s hiring of Andrew McCabe the former FBI deputy director who recently lost his appeal to avoid being charged for giving false statements to federal investigators.
“You and your network continue to use him as a contributor who has been lying under oath,” he said. “So if you’re going to hold me to a standard, hold your same employees and contributors to that same standard.”
Lewandowski then continued talking about McCabe, but Camerota wasn’t interested in talking about this. She noted that Lewandowski’s remarks boiled down to him saying “you lie to the media.”
“Are you a journalist, or are you a talking head?” Lewandowski asked Camerota. “You’re listening with your mouth,” Camerota replied while continuing to ask “Do you lie to the media, yes or no?… When do you lie? Are you lying now?”
The confrontation then continued between the two of them and at one point Lewandowski said that he doesn’t hold Camerota “accountable for the lies your contributors gave to the inspector general.”
“Frankly, you are actually trying to hold me accountable for that,” Camerota replied to this.
