On CNN's New Day, Chris Cuomo had Corey Lewandowski on to discuss the news that Donald Trump Jr. was in contact with Wikileaks.

Sounds like old Corey is channeling Kellyanne Conway! He tries to change the subject by saying that... the Clinton campaign was influenced by Russia. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Cuomo was understandably incredulous.

"Hold on a second. You are saying that you accept the intelligence community's assessment but you are saying that the dynamic was that the interference was conducted through the Clinton campaign? That is a notion that doesn't meet any standard or any piece of proof that we've gotten from the investigators to date," Cuomo said.

Corey then doubles down. Cuomo can't quite believe it.

"Let me be as clear as I can be, Chris," Lewandowski said. "I've said this many, many, many times. I have never, to the best of my knowledge, ever communicated with anybody who was a Russian, Russian agent, Russian supporter or somebody who was from the Russian government in any way, shape or form."

Cuomo then tried to ask him again. "You said you had no contact and nobody had contact and we now know that's not true."

Just watch. If anyone ever sounded like he was trying to dance away from his own guilt, it's this guy.
