“The guy is a liar, is what it comes down to, and I don’t think anybody who looks at what’s in this book can take it honestly," Lewandowski told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." 


“This is a book of fiction. Not only is it not accurate, there are so many misrepresentations in this book that it shouldn’t be taken seriously," he continued, adding “This book is a complete fabrication."

Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," caused a frenzy in Washington last week. 

The book is filled with various claims about Trump and those close to him, such as Lewandowski. 

Wolff writes in the book that Lewandowski considered Donald Trump Jr.Don TrumpTrump Jr. shares edited video showing father knocking Biden down with golf ball Trump: 'I can't imagine' any Republican would beat me in 2024 primary if I run Trump Jr.: There are 'plenty' of GOP incumbents who should be challenged MORE and Eric TrumpEric TrumpHunter Biden blasts Trump in new book: 'A vile man with a vile mission' Sunday shows preview: Spotlight on Georgia voting law; lawmakers tackle gun violence, border surge Chicago hospital exec resigns after improper Trump Tower vaccine distribution MORE to be stupid, and that he referred to Jared KushnerJared Corey KushnerTrump alumni launch America First Policy Institute Fauci fatigue sets in as top doc sows doubt in vaccine effectiveness The Memo: Biden's five biggest foreign policy challenges MORE as "the butler," which Lewandoski denied on Sunday. 

“Mr. Wolff and I never spoke about this book, so where he comes up with the assertions on what I think of the Trump kids or Jared Kushner are completely made up. I’ve never spoken to him about this," Lewandowski said. 

The White House and the president have pushed back on the claims made in the book, and have maintained they are untrue. 

Lewandowski in the interview noted that Wolff acknowledges in the book’s introduction that it contains conflicting and untrue statements. He writes that certain accounts reflect “a version of events I believe to be true."
