CNN parts ways with pro-Trump contributors Bauer, Kingston

CNN parts ways with pro-Trump contributors Bauer, Kingston
 
Kingston, a former GOP lawmaker from Georgia, and Bauer, a former lieutenant governor of South Carolina, did not have their contributor contracts renewed, the news site reported on Monday.
  
Former Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter (D) and legal analyst Page Pate also did not have their contracts renewed.
 
A CNN source told The Hill when asked for comment that the moves are all part of "the natural churn of contributors" and that the network typically does not publicize these kind of changes.

The cable news network has seen several of the president's supporters come and go since Trump took office. Those contributors include Jeffrey Lord, former Trump transition team spokesman Jason Miller, Paris Dennard, radio talk show host Ed Martin and former Trump campaign manager Corey LewandowskiCorey R.
