During an appearance Friday evening on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski revealed that he plans to sue a liberal paper for allowing one of its reporters to allegedly burglarize his townhouse.
While it remains unclear when exactly the burglary occurred, New York magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi admitted outright in an interview with Columbia Journalism Review two months ago that she had indeed entered the townhouse.
The lower portion of the townhouse reportedly serves as the offices of Turningberry Solutions, whereas the upper portion contains Trump’s former campaign manager’s apartment.
“I tried to knock on the basement door, but the gate wasn’t open. Then I walked up the steps to the main door and knocked for, like, 10 minutes. And I’m knocking, knocking, nobody’s answering,” Nuzzi said to CJR.
“But after a while, I just touched the door knob, and the door was open. I walked in and I’m in the house, by myself. So I took this photo of the quote on a wall. I peered around but I didn’t walk fully into the house.”
She even shared the photo to Twitter (Exhibit A):

After briefly texting with her boyfriend, who warned her that entering the townhouse was likely a violation of law, she went back outside and continued knocking.
The problem is that Lewandowski now fervently believes Nuzzi stole one of his personal photo albums from the townhouse’s foyer.
“She took pictures inside the home, and all of a sudden, a photo album that was at my home has gone missing right after she left,” he said Friday (Exhibit B).
He wasn’t lying either. He first noticed the missing album back in March (Exhibit C):
All the evidence points to burglary. The evidence also shows that Nuzzi feels no regrets about her unethical and illegal behavior.
“Ok but do you agree with me that socially I would probably thrive in jail,” she joked in March, responding to someone who tweeted that she’d likely not wind up behind bars for what happened.
What’s unknown at this point is what sorts of civil and perhaps even criminal repercussions Nuzzi might face if Lewandowski decides to pursue legal actions against her.
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano noted in March that Nuzzi definitely “committed a crime” when she entered the former campaign manager’s home, saying, “You can do that by just sticking your hand in.”
Because the lower portion of Lewandowski’s home contains a public office, however, law enforcement might not be as “aggressive” if and when it comes after her.
“Either way she broke, entered, trespassed,” Napolitano added.
Wrong. She broke, entered, trespassed AND possibly burglarized!
