Trump campaign slams ex-staffers' super PAC: 'These guys are scam artists'

Donald Trump's campaign manager vigorously defended the campaign's anti-big money attitude Thursday, shortly after an ex-Trump adviser launched a super PAC to take down the billionaire's strongest competitors in the Republican presidential field.

"We sent a cease-and-desist letter to this PAC in October and want nothing to do with this," Corey Lewandowski told The Hill.

"These guys are scam artists doing it for their own personal benefit and seeking to profiteer off Trump's name. People should not give to this or any other super-PAC claiming to support Donald Trump for president," he added.

Lewandowski also reportedly described the Committee to Restore America's Greatness PAC as a "big league scam."
