Former Trump campaign manager Corey LewandowskiCorey R.

MORE suggested Thursday that a reporter took his photo album after she admitted to entering his home office without permission.

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi told Columbia Journalism Review that she briefly entered a townhouse where Lewandowski lives in an effort to interview him for a story about outgoing White House staffer Hope HicksHope Charlotte HicksTrump must be removed — for more than reasons offered in impeachment 2019 in Photos: 35 pictures in politics Justice Dept releases another round of summaries from Mueller probe MORE.

Lewandowski, who has said he is considering taking legal action, took to Twitter on Thursday to suggest the reporter could be linked to a missing photo album.


“I haven’t seen my photo album that was in the foyer prior to this incident,” Lewandowski wrote, linking to an article on her entrance into the townhouse. “Wonder where it could be.”

Lewandowski has been blasting Nuzzi on Twitter over the incident, saying she and other members of the "mainstream media" lacked journalism ethics and "decency." 

Nuzzi said she tried the door knob and found the residence open so she walked inside. She even took a photo of a quote painted in the foyer and shared it on Twitter. 

Nuzzi told Columbia Journalism Review that she contacted her boyfriend after entering the townhouse, who advised it "probably wasn't legal" she entered the residence without permission.

"I texted my boyfriend, 'You know, I just walked into the house, because nobody was answering at the door.' And he said it probably wasn’t legal and that I should leave. I was like, ‘F---,’” Nuzzi said. 

Lewandowski responded on Twitter by telling Nuzzi to "believe him." 

Nuzzi has made light of the situation on Twitter, thanking Fox News for calling her a "New York Magazine star" in their article "about how everyone needs to calm down!" 

Nuzzi's employer, New York Magazine, said they stood by the reporter's methods. 

“We stand by Olivia’s reporting methods and don’t believe she did anything wrong,” a magazine spokesperson told Fox News.
Lauren Starke, New York Magazine's director of communications, dismissed Lewandowski's claim.

"We don't take him seriously," Starke said in a statement to The Hill.
