Lewandowski: Dems Want Russia Scandal to Never End Because They Lack Message
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Democrats will push the Russia collusion narrative for as long as they can because they have no message.
"The Democrats never want it to end because they have no message, they have no narrative, they have no leader," Lewandowski told "Fox & Friends."
His comments come in the wake of renewed scrutiny of the Trump campaign's dealings with Russia after a meeting came to light between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.
The meeting was a dud, according to Trump Jr., and produced no meaningful information. He remarked that the recent reaction to the meeting is "a little bit ridiculous and overplayed," but said he would have done things differently.
My son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent. This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!

The president defended his son, calling him "a great person who loves our country."
"If you asked right now, 'Who is the leader of the Democratic party?' there is no consensus," Lewandowski said.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been the "greatest asset to the Republican party in the last thirty years," besides maybe Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, the former campaign manager added.
Lewandowski stated Democrats are afraid that President Trump will be successful in fulfilling campaign promises on taxes, infrastructure, healthcare, and other issues.
