One of President Donald Trump’s senior campaign advisors, Corey Lewandowski, has tested positive for COVID-19, The New York Times reported on Thursday. Lewandowski is now the latest person in Trump’s circle to recently test positive for the virus after Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson both tested positive earlier.

A White House correspondent for The Times, Maggie Haberman, tweeted the breaking news around noon on Thursday, saying: “NEW – Corey Lewandowski, Trump adviser who’s been working on efforts to bring lawsuits alleging illegal election activity in specific states, tested positive for COVID yesterday per a person briefed. Lewandowski had been in Philly for days and believes he contracted it there.”

Haberman then added that Lewandowski “was at the White House election night party, but tested positive eight days later.”

Lewandowski also confirmed the diagnosis with CNN, with its Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta tweeting about it.

“Corey Lewandowski has tested positive for covid, he confirms. He says he feels fine and will be staying home,” Acosta wrote.

As mentioned by Haberman, Lewandowski has been part of the Trump campaign’s effort to bring lawsuits to swing states where they allege election misconduct and voter fraud occurred. It is not certain yet what effect his diagnosis could have on these ongoing legal battles.

Back in early October, a massive wave of Trump administration officials and other figures in Washington, DC—including the president, First Lady Melania Trump, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, advisor Hope Hicks, Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), and many more—all contracted the virus. It is widely believed that these individuals contracted after they all attended the same event on September 26, the ceremony where Trump announced then-Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nominee.

This time around, as Haberman brought up, the event that people suspect this new batch of positive tests originated from was the Trump campaign’s Election Night party at the White House eight days ago.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
