EXCLUSIVE: Corey Lewandowski, who helped Donald Trump win the Republican nomination, is getting back in the campaign game.

He is joining Vice President Pence’s political action committee, which will enable him to travel with the VP and puts him firmly back in the president’s 2020 reelection orbit, say sources familiar with the move.

Lewandowski discussed the move with Trump before accepting the offer and is taking the job with the president’s blessing, these sources say.

Former Trump campaign aide is helping Russian firm shed sanctions

  Former Trump campaign aide is helping Russian firm shed sanctions A former senior campaign and transition aide to President Donald Trump recently inked a deal to help a Russian oligarch's conglomerate shed sanctions the Trump administration slapped on them last month. Bryan Lanza, who is in regular contact with White House officials, is lobbying on behalf of the chairman of EN+ Group, an energy and aluminum firm presently controlled by Oleg Deripaska, according to several sources. Deripaska is a billionaire who is close to Russian President Vladimir Putin and was the target of US sanctions imposed last month. Lanza is also a CNN contributor.

Corey Lewandowski , an adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign, has Lewandowski said he is feeling fine and will stay home as a precaution. He joins a growing list of individuals But on the trail, his campaign team generally disregarded requiring masks and social distancing among attendees.

Corey Lewandowski ‘s BACK. President Donald Trump‘s first campaign manager has spent months in exile, since he was dumped in the summer Lewandowski , according to Howard Kurtz‘s reporting, will join The Great America Committee, a group deeply involved in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.

By hiring such a high-profile Trump adviser, Pence is also sending a signal that there’s no daylight between him and his boss, despite some media chatter that the PAC could help further his own ambitions if Trump winds up not running again. The Great America Committee is the first such political arm created by a sitting vice president, but can only be used to donate to other campaigns and not to back any future Pence effort.

Lewandowski is leaving the pro-Trump group America First Policies, which has served as something of a way station for presidential advisers in transition.

  Young veterans Herrera, Nola help Phillies rise from last place to playoff contender The Phillies entered this season with plenty of talent. That wasn’t the question. The question was this: Was that talent ready to compete for a playoff spot? In 2017, the Phillies won just 66 games and finished 31 games behind the Nationals, in last place in the NL East. They were 21 games out of the second wild-card spot. Only one NL team, in fact, lost more games than the Phillies.MORE: Phillies move up in SN's latest Power RankingsEach season starts with a clean slate, of course.

By working for the nonprofit America First and its fundraising arm, Lewandowski faced certain restrictions on campaign travel and other overt political activity that could be viewed as improper coordination with the Trump team. Since the Pence committee raises and distributes so-called hard money, none of those restrictions apply.

The move will not only deepen Lewandowski’s ties to Trump’s second-in-command but instantly make him a player in the midterms, a growing source of concern for the president. The Pence committee donated more than $150,000 to Republican congressional candidates in February.

Trump had discussed the possibility of Lewandowski becoming his chief of staff if John Kelly leaves, as I recently reported. But Lewandowski was reluctant to join the White House, where he has more than his share of detractors, and the Pence job makes that possibility even more remote.

Cubs, Reds involved in brief bench-clearing incident

  Cubs, Reds involved in brief bench-clearing incident Reds left-hander Amir Garrett and Chicago Cubs second baseman Javier Baez exchanged words after Baez struck out to end the sixth inning, sparking a bench-clearing incident that was quickly defused after a brief scuffle in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. Baez appeared to take issue with Garrett's slight celebration of the inning-ending strikeout. The two approached each other as Garrett walked off the field toward the first base dugout. The dugouts and bullpens all emptied and the teams converged in foul territory, but order was quickly restored and there were no ejections.The Reds were leading, 4-2.

Corey Lewandowski give his thought on the 2020 Democratic candidates, the mainstream media bias, and President Trump’s national emergency for border

Former Donald Trump campaign chair Cory Lewandowski is joining a PAC that boosts Vice President Mike Pence as he travels the country to help congressional Lewandowski 's new role would get him directly involved in the Midterm elections. He has been working for America First Policies nonprofit.

His new title will do nothing to slow down the Corey media express. The combative co-author of “Let Trump Be Trump” has been fiercely defending the president and attacking Robert Mueller, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and other investigators and detractors. Pence, for his part, recently stirred controversy by telling NBC that it is time for Mueller and his office to wrap up the Russia investigation.

In recent months, the New Hampshire resident has been the president’s most visible outside supporter on the airwaves, appearing on all three cable networks as well as Sunday shows, often in contentious interviews.

The latest job change completes a comeback for the controversial operative. Trump fired Lewandowski as his first campaign manager in the spring of 2016, as he was effectively clinching the nomination, after he developed strained relations with the candidate’s family. But as a private businessman and cable warrior, Lewandowski has remained in close touch with his former boss, sometimes visiting him at the White House, after a period in which he and other advisers had their access curtailed by chief of staff John Kelly.

Trump had talked to Lewandowski about taking a top White House job when Reince Priebus was winding down his tenure as chief of staff. But Lewandowski preferred to remain on the outside and no formal offer was made.

Lewandowski joined America First last summer, leaving a Washington consulting firm he had co-founded after the company became mired in controversy, and later became the group’s chief strategist.

America First has been undergoing something of an exodus. Brad Parscale recently left the group when Trump tapped him to manage his reelection effort. Katrina Pierson, a prominent Trump spokeswoman in 2016, resigned to join the campaign as well.

But the organization and its political fundraising arm raised more than $13 million in the first quarter of the year.
