Trump Group Takes Charge Of Harassment Allegations By Axing Top Official

( Corey Lewandowski has been removed from his power position at the MAGA Action political action committee.

Amid rumors that he sexually harassment a donor to former President Donald Trump, Lewandowski was removed from his position as chairman of the PAC.

On Twitter, Taylor Budowich, the director of communications for Trump, said Pan Bondi, the former attorney general for Florida, would now head the MAGA Action PAC.

Budowich tweeted:

“Pam Bondi, the very talented and honorable frmr AG of FL, has our complete faith and confidence in taking over MAGA Action. Corey Lewandowski will be going on to other endeavors and we very much want to thank him for his service. He will no longer be associated with Trump World.”

In a report that Politico published this week, Trashelle Odom, a Trump donor, said Lewandowski on many occasions touched her buttocks and legs, used language that was sexually graphic around her and even “stalked” her.

According to the report, Odom said:

“On the evening of September 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, I attended a dinner to support a charity and spend time with wonderful friends. He repeatedly touched me inappropriately, said vile and disgusting things to me, stalked me, and made me feel violated and fearful.”

While Lewandowski himself didn’t respond to a request for comment from Politico, David Chesnoff, his lawyer, did say:

“Accusations and rumors appear to be morphing by the minute, and we will not dignify them with a further response.”

Politico further reported that Odom as well as her husband John, who’s a construction executive in Idaho, both demanded that their donation to Trump be returned to them unless the PAC completely cut ties with Lewandowski.

Lewandowski is a former top aide to Trump and has been with him since the presidential campaign in 2016. He was fired from his position of campaign manager, though, right before Trump received the nomination at the Republican National Convention.

He did remain with Trump as a senior adviser and then joined his 2020 presidential campaign toward the end. In 2018, it was reported that Trump fought with his former vice president, Mike Pence, fought over Lewandowski being hired in the first place. The former president, allegedly, was against hiring him.

Trump denied that report later, though, saying “no such fight ever happened.”

It’s been quite the week for Lewandowski. Earlier in the week, American Greatness, a conservative website, published a report saying he has been having an affair with Kristi Noem, the Republican governor of South Dakota. Both Noem and Lewandowski are married.

Noem denied that report on Wednesday, saying the allegations were a “disgusting lie.”

She took to Twitter to defend herself after the report was published, writing:

“These rumors are total garbage and a disgusting lie. These old, tired attacks on conservative women are based on a falsehood that we can’t achieve anything without a man’s help.”
