Lewandowski loses $1.2 million book deal

Lewandowski loses $1.2 million book deal
Trump’s ousted campaign manager had a big offer from HarperCollins, but declined to provide a copy of his non-disclosure agreement.


Corey Lewandowski had a $1.2-million offer from HarperCollins to write a book chronicling his time running Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, but the publishing giant backed away from the deal amid concerns about Lewandowski’s nondisclosure agreement, according to two sources familiar with the talks.

Lewandowski, working through a California-based representative named Robert Stryk, began soliciting offers for a book, tentatively titled “Let Trump be Trump,” from multiple publishers in March, while he was working as Trump’s campaign manager, according to one of the sources, a Republican operative.


HarperCollins tendered its $1.2-million offer to Lewandowski at some point before mid-May, said the sources familiar with the talks, including one who personally reviewed the proposed contract between Lewandowski and HarperCollins. But after BuzzFeed News reported that Lewandowski was working on a book, he withdrew from active conversations with HarperCollins and the other publishers, the sources said.

At the time, Lewandowski tweeted, “Despite false reports to the contrary, I am not writing a book. I am under a strict confidentiality agreement with Mr. Trump.”

But the sources said Lewandowski revived the talks last week, after he was fired from the campaign following a bitter power struggle with campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Stryk asked HarperCollins to reinstate its $1.2-million offer, according to the sources.
