Dean Heller calls Trump’s former campaign manager a liar, says Lewandowski “must have me confused with someone else”
If Lewandowski is lying, what is Heller’s version of events?
In a desperate attempt to save face, Sen. Dean Heller is disputing a claim by President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski that Heller started cozying up to Trump last year to earn his support (after being 99 percent against him in 2016) after being told at a Las Vegas dinner in 2017 “that if he did not fall in line with Mr. Trump, the president’s allies would aggressively target him.”
Heller is pushing back in response to a question from NBC today, saying Lewandowski has him confused with someone else… but what other endangered Republican Senator who has been publicly threatened by Trump could Lewandowski have met with in Las Vegas? Maybe this guy??
New York Times: “Mr. Lewandowski was even blunter, recalling a Las Vegas dinner he attended in 2017 with Mr. Heller, in which he bluntly told the senator that if he did not fall in line with Mr. Trump, the president’s allies would aggressively target him. “I said, ‘With all due respect, I will not miss,’” Mr. Lewandowski recalled.” [8/27/18]
