White House reportedly talking to Corey Lewandowski about heading a crisis management team

The White House is looking to separate itself from the Trump administration's problems by creating a crisis management operation.

According to Politico, President Donald Trump's former controversial campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and deputy campaign manager David Bossie have been contacted about the idea.

A White house official said that there were no immediate plans to hire either of the men, however, both men were spotted at the White House just before Trump left for his trip overseas.
