Inside the ‘Lewandowski Embassy’

Repost from Politico, By  and JOSH DAWSEY

Like Steve Bannon at the Breitbart office, Lewandowski stays upstairs when he’s in town. The lower floors house a lobbying firm and sometimes a radio show.

“You could call this the Turnberry embassy,” said John Fredericks, a friend of Lewandowski’s who sometimes broadcasts his syndicated radio show, “The John Fredericks Show,” out of the dining room and allowed a POLITICO reporter to join him there.

Pressed on that description, he corrected himself.

“Nobody knows what Turnberry is, so I would call it the Lewandowski Embassy,” Fredericks said. “On the air, I call it the Corey Lewandowski galactic headquarters.”

The clearest evidence linking Lewandowski to Turnberry, though, may be the row house. Asked whether the house was Corey’s personal office or Turnberry’s offices, Fredericks said there wasn’t a distinction.

“Turnberry is Corey’s public affairs company,” Fredericks said. “They’re one and the same.”

The house, built in 1900, is owned by the Citizens United Foundation, according to Washington, D.C., property records. It’s not clear whether Lewandowski, Turnberry or another entity rents the house or whether Lewandowski is allowed to use it for free.

Lewandowski worked with David Bossie, Citizens United’s president, on “Let Trump Be Trump: The Inside Story of His Rise to the Presidency,” a book due out next month. Bossie did not respond to requests for comment.

Lewandowski “does TV and radio interviews” in the house, said one person who knows Lewandowski and has been to the row house. “He lets friends of his use it. It is pretty open-door.”

One of those friends, Fredericks, said Lewandowski will sometimes “just come downstairs and pop on” his radio show.

The house also provides nods to Lewandowski’s new influence in Washington, a city where few had heard of him before he took the helm of Trump’s campaign in 2015.

Inside Donald Trump’s Election Night War Room

Repost from GQ Magazine, BY BEN SCHRECKINGER

Nobody saw it coming. Not the pundits or the pollsters, not even the Donald himself. From the backrooms of Trump Tower to the studios at Fox News to the VIP lounges of his victory bash, this is the story of Donald Trump’s Election Day—perhaps the wildest, weirdest 24 hours in American politics —as told by dozens of the people who found themselves at the center of it (including Conservative Radio Host, John Fredericks.)

McAuliffe May Be on His Way Out in Virginia…

Repost from The Washington Post, By Gregory Schneider

Some Republicans have taken note.

John Fredericks, a conservative radio host who helped run Trump’s presidential campaign in Virginia last year, has become a grudging McAuliffe fan.

He has praised the governor for his economic development efforts and conceded that McAuliffe’s push to unlock federal dollars by expanding Medicaid, which the Republican-controlled General Assembly has so far resisted, was probably the right call.

“He would be the one to bring the working-class jobs debate to Trump’s base and make the argument that he could peel some of it away in the battleground working-class swing states,” Fredericks said. “I fear Terry McAuliffe more than any other candidate in the Democratic field in 2020.”</blockquote

Few others will go that far, but after last Tuesday’s strong showing, McAuliffe has at least earned mentions in the chatter about presidential contenders.

Virginia Republicans Try to Sort Out a Bloodbath…

John Fredericks, a pro-Trump radio host who advocated for bringing the president to Virginia, said Trump’s absence left his supporters unenthused. A presidential rally, he said, wouldn’t have fired up the Trump opponents any more than they already were.

“Ralph Northam ran on one message: Trump sucks,” Fredericks said. “Many of us didn’t think that was enough in a governor’s race. But it proved to be the message that carried the day.”
