"Now, in previous appearances, we have told you that Corey was still receiving severance from the Trump campaign, but that is no longer the case, we are told," CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota said Thursday while introducing political contributor Corey Lewandowski.
After months of criticism, CNN has put the Lewandowski issue to bed — sort of.
The controversy stems from the Trump campaign's firing of Lewandowski in June and CNN's hiring of him days later.
