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.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
