Core Lewandowski, the former campaign manager for part of the 2016 campaign of President Donald Trump, has been on fire.
On Wednesday he stepped into the fire on CNN and he faced anchor Alisyn Camerota and had her running from his questions.
CAMEROTA: There’s another moment that’s gotten a lot of attention. Where you basically admitted the conditions with which you tell the truth. So let’s play this moment.
Camerota then played a video of Lewandowski’s testimony to the House Democrats on Tuesday where she thought she got him.
LEWANDOWSKI: I’m a truth teller every time I stand before Congress, or a committee of jurisdiction, and raise my hand and swear to God under oath.
BARRY BERKE : My question, sir, is when you said the President never asked you to get involved with Mr. Sessions —
LEWANDOWSKI: I have no obligation to have a candid conversation with the media whatsoever, just like they have no obligation to cover me honestly. And they do it inaccurately all the time.

BERKE: So you’re admitting that on national television you were lying there?
LEWANDOWSKI: What I’m saying is, they’ve been inaccurate on many occasions and perhaps I was inaccurate that time.
Camerota used that video to accuse Lewandowski of lying to the media and the American people, which is not what he said.
CAMEROTA: Okay, Corey, so just to be clear. You only feel the obligation to tell the truth when you’re under oath?
LEWANDOWSKI: Which is clearly more than some of your contributors. As you know, Andy McCabe, who has a criminal referral, who’s a CNN contributor, was not accurate under oath.
“He has a criminal referral for lying to the FBI, for lying to the Inspector General on three separate occasions.
“But Alisyn, you and your network continue to use him as a contributor, who has been lying under oath! And so, if you’re going to hold me to a standard, hold your same employees and contributors to that same standard. I have no criminal referrals.
CAMEROTA: Corey, just a simple question. It’s just a simple question about —
LEWANDOWSKI: Alisyn, excuse me. Excuse me —
CAMEROTA: Answer the question.
LEWANDOWSKI: I’ll be happy to answer your question and I’ll be held to the same standard as the employees and contributors to CNN which means —
CAMEROTA: What are you talking about?
LEWANDOWSKI: When I am under oath, I will tell the truth. That can’t be said, the truth, as James Comey, or Andrew McCabe, who’s employed by CNN.
