Le­wandowski to start con­sult­ing firm to aid Trump

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Ken Shep­herd

Corey Le­wandowski, Don­ald Trump’s right-hand man turned TV pun­dit, is start­ing a con­sult­ing firm in Wash­ing­ton, the ex-cam­paign man­ager an­nounced Wed­nes­day.

“Proud to launch our new ven­ture to­day to sup­port @re­alDon­aldTrump achieve his agenda in Wash­ing­ton D.C.,” he wrote on Twit­ter, at­tach­ing a photo of a press re­lease an­nounc­ing the launch of Av­enue Strate­gies. Barry Ben­nett, a se­nior ad­viser to Mr. Trump’s cam­paign, is also on board.

In the news re­lease, Mr. Le­wandowski said he had been of­fered var­i­ous jobs in the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion but de­cided “I can best help him out­side the for­mal struc­ture of the gov­ern­ment.”

Mr. Le­wandowski was fired from the cam­paign in June, and poll­ster and vet­eran GOP strate­gist Kellyanne Conway was the last to hold that po­si­tion.

But while he won’t be in the Trump White House, Mr. Le­wandowski will be work­ing aw­fully close to it. Ac­cord­ing to its bare-bones web­site, Av­enue Strate­gies is lo­cated a block west of the White House at 1717 Penn­syl­va­nia Ave., North­west, in Suite 1025.
