Corey Lewandowski on Sunday described President Trump’s pardon of conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza as a “one-off opportunity.”

“I don’t know of the president’s relationship with Dinesh D’Souza. I have never met Dinesh D’Souza, so I don’t think there was a strong relationship between the president and him,” Lewandowski, who served as Trump’s campaign manager, told “Fox News Sunday.” 

{mosads}Lewandowski pushed back on an assertion from former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone, who said in a recent interview that the president was sending a “signal” to special counsel Robert Mueller by pardoning D’Souza. 

“Indict people for crimes that don’t pertain to Russian collusion and this is what could happen,” Stone told The Washington Post.

Lewandowski on Sunday rejected this characterization, saying the pardon “is not a sign.”

Trump last week pardoned D’Souza, who in 2014 pleaded guilty to breaking campaign finance laws.

Lewandowski during his Sunday show interview dismissed the idea that Trump is mulling a pardon for his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who last year pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

“Never, ever, ever has this president said — to the best of my knowledge — that he’s even thinking about a pardon for Mike Flynn,” Lewandowski said.
