Corey Lewandowski has reportedly been booted from former President Donald Trump’s orbit following a stunning sexual harassment allegation from a prominent Trump donor that’s been shared both with the mainstream press and now the police as well.

The accusation was originally publicly made earlier in the week to Politico by Trashelle Odom, a Trump donor married to construction executive John Odom.

“On the evening of September 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, I attended a dinner to support a charity and spend time with wonderful friends. He repeatedly touched me inappropriately, said vile and disgusting things to me, stalked me, and made me feel violated and fearful,” she said to the outlet, referencing Lewandowski.

“I am coming forward because he needs to be held accountable. I am blessed to have a loving husband and family behind me. I want other women to know that you can be heard, too, and together we can stop terrible things like this from happening,” she continued.

Odom can be seen in the photo below standing alongside the former president:

Politico reported corroborating her allegations from “four people who were first-hand witnesses at the event.”

Politico also reported obtaining a separate statement from her attorney containing even more shocking allegations.

“Lewandowski allegedly remarked on the size of his genitalia, described his sexual performance and showed Odom his hotel room key. After the incident, Odom told people that Lewandowski repeatedly spoke about sex while using expletives,” the outlet’s report continued.

The statement reportedly noted that Odom had unsuccessfully tried rebuffing him throughout the whole evening.

“Mrs. Odom stated that over the course of the dinner, Mr. Lewandowski tried to hold her hand, and she pushed his hand away. He touched her leg, and she moved it away. He grabbed her napkin off her lap and tried to touch her leg again, and she pulled her dress over her leg, to move his hand away and cover her skin,” the statement reads.

“He touched her back and she tried to get away. He described an area where he was sore from a workout, on the side of his butt, but he demonstrated this by touching her there—on the upper side of her rear end. Lewandowski tried to touch her approximately 10 times, and Mrs. Odom always rebuffed him,” it continues.

Lewandowksi also allegedly told her she had a “nice ass,” “threw his drink” on her (causing it to drench her shoe and the bottom of her dress), called her stupid and threatened her, telling her that he’s “very powerful and can destroy anyone”  because he’s “close with President Trump,” according to the statement.

“Corey was verbally and physically aggressive and forceful. I was fearful for my physical safety. I was also fearful that Corey has the power to destroy and ruin everything my husband and I have been working on in our business, personal and charitable endeavors,” Odom reportedly said in her own statement.

Except that as of this week, he’s reportedly no longer close with the former president.

“Lewandowski, one of Donald Trump’s longest-serving, highest-profile advisers, has been exiled from the former president’s orbit following allegations … that he made unwanted sexual advances toward a major Trump donor,” Politico confirmed.

Meanwhile, the former president’s senior adviser dropped the following tweet:

Then on Friday, Politico obtained confirmation that Odom’s allegation had since been forwarded to the police via a statement sent by her lawyer, meaning it’s no longer just an allegation. It’s now a full-fledged, recorded accusation that could potentially lead to serious consequences.

“Matthew K. Taylor, an attorney representing Odom and her family, sent Odom’s statement to the Boise Police Department in Idaho, where Odom lives so that her local police department could forward it to the police department in Las Vegas, where the incident took place,” the outlet reported.

In a letter, Taylor himself wrote that the statement was being sent “for purposes of prosecution.”

As of Saturday, Lewandowksi had yet to personally respond to the allegations. Moreover, his Twitter account showed that he’d last tweeted on Friday, the 24th, a day before the alleged altercation with Odom occurred.

In a statement to Politico, his attorney said only that “it’s premature to respond to something that hasn’t been filed up until now and that we haven’t seen and we will respond if appropriate.”

This all comes as Lewandowksi is currently embroiled in another scandal for an alleged affair he had with South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.
