(Newser) – Corey Lewandowski will no longer be receiving regular payments from the Trump campaign, USA Today reports. The former campaign manager and current CNN commentator received the rest of his severance agreement in a single lump payment from the Trump campaign. It was likely a payment of $80,000. "Everything comes to an end," Lewandowski said when asked about the matter Thursday on CNN. According to Politico, Lewandowski was supposed to received monthly payments through the end of 2016, but the arrangement drew criticism earlier this month when FEC filings listed what was supposed to be a $20,000 severance payment as "strategy consulting." CNN had already been criticized for hiring someone still being paid by a campaign.
