Live updates: Corey Lewandowski testifies  – CNNPolitics

OLIVIER DOULIERY/AFP/Getty ImagesIn a testy exchange with Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, Corey Lewandowski appeared to make a subtle dig at the congressman’s failed presidential campaign by calling him “President Swalwell.”Swalwell dropped out of the 2020 race for president in July.Here’s that exchange:Swalwell: Mr. Lewandowski, I’m going to put a slide up and it’s the words President Trump dictated to you on July 19. Can you read what you wrote down?Lewandowski: I’m happy to have you read it, congressman. Swalwell: Well why don’t you want to read it Mr. Lewandowski?Lewandowski: I think you should afford me the same privilege you afforded director Mueller.Swalwell: Would you like to read it?Lewandowski: No, you’re welcome to read it.Swalwell: Are you ashamed of the words that you wrote down?Lewandowski: President Swalwell, I’m very happy of what I’ve written, but you’re welcome to read it if you’d like.Swalwell: Are you ashamed to read it out loud? Lewandowski: I’m not ashamed of anything in my life, are you?Lewandowski also countered a question from Swalwell about whether he routinely placed notes the President asked him to take down in a safe by saying, “It’s a big safe, congressman, there’s a lot of guns in there.” Swalwell largely based his campaign around addressing gun violence.Swalwell: Have you ever put any words that the President asked you to write down before in a safe, or was this the first time you’d done that?Lewandowski: I believe it’s my standard operating procedure when taking notes, Congressman.Swalwell: So every note you take of the President you put in a safe?Lewandowski: I don’t — It’s a big safe, congressman, there’s a lot of guns in there.
