New CNN contributor Corey Lewandowski ‘goes there’ on Obama when asked about Trump tax returns

CNN contributor and former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski suggested the reason President Obama has never released his Harvard Laws School transcripts is that they would disclose he wasn’t a U.S. citizen.

During a panel discussion on “CNN Tonight with Don Lemon,” Angela Rye, a former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, took issue with Trump’s remarks that Obama was accepted at Harvard only because of affirmative action.

Lewandowski threw it right back at her.

“Did he ever release his transcripts from Harvard?” he asked Nye.

She shot back with Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns.

“You raised the issue. I’m just asking,” Lewandowski said. “You raised the issue. Did he, did he ever release his transcripts or his admission to Harvard University. You raised the issue, so just yes or no? The answer is no.”

“In this moment, I’m going to Beyoncé you. Boy, bye,” Rye responded. “You’re so out of line right now. Tell your candidate to release his tax returns.”

“Don’t raise the issue if you don’t want to address it,” Lewandowski said. “That’s what happens.”

“Two words,” Rye replied. “Tax. Returns.”

“Harvard University. Transcripts,” Lewandowski fired back. “You raised the issue. Did he ever release them?“
