Ex-Trump Campaign Manager Lewandowski Faces Russia Interview

Former Trump campaign manager Cory Lewandowski, center, and his lawyer Peter Chavkin, second from left, arrive to meet behind closed doors with the House Intelligence Committee, at the Capitol in Washington, March 8, 2018.

One of Donald Trump's former campaign managers has arrived on Capitol Hill for a closed-door interview with the House Intelligence Committee as part of its Russia investigation.

Corey Lewandowski led Trump's presidential campaign for nearly a year. He was fired before the November 2016 election and held no official positions after he was let go. But he's remained close to Trump and some White House officials, and has been a prominent defender of Trump on television.

Lewandowski first appeared before the committee in January. He refused to answer questions about things that happened after his time on the campaign, according to the committee's top Democrat, Adam Schiff of California.
