“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.Donald (Don) John TrumpFlake condemns Trump Jr. Instagram post mocking Kavanaugh accuser Trump Jr. campaign event looks for new venue after Montana restaurant declines to host The Hill's 12:30 Report — Kavanaugh controversy consumes Washington | Kavanaugh slated to testify Monday | Allegations shake up midterms MORE and Eric TrumpEric Frederick TrumpAvenatti attacks Trump campaign over fundraising photo: 'What a joke' Ex-Trump, progressive strategists battle over charges of anti-Semitism surrounding Eric Trump Bill Kristol slams Eric Trump over 'shekels' comment MORE to be stupid, and that he referred to Jared KushnerJared Corey KushnerThe Hill's Morning Report — Sponsored by United Against Nuclear Iran — Kavanaugh confirmation in sudden turmoil Manafort’s plea deal — the clear winners and losers Five takeaways from Manafort’s plea deal 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."
