'I WARNED EVERYBODY': President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski slammed Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, after he pleaded guilty last week to federal charges and implicating the president in a crime ... Cohen pleaded guilty to tax evasion, campaign finance violations and bank fraud. Speaking on “FOX News Sunday,” Lewandowski sought to distance Trump from his former attorney and denied that Cohen played any significant role in Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

"I was very clear when I was in charge of the campaign, Michael was not somebody who we wanted at the campaign," Lewandowski said. "He would go out and make statements that we had to walk back afterwards because he would say things which were factually untrue. I warned everybody at the organization that Michael was going to become a problem."

'TURN THE PAGE' IN MOLLIE'S HONOR: The father of Mollie Tibbetts, the Iowa college student whose disappearance caught the nation's attention, told members of the small community where she lived and studied to "turn toward the light" at his daughter's funeral Mass Sunday afternoon ... "Today, we need to turn the page," Rob Tibbetts said, according to the Des Moines Register. "We're at the end of a long ordeal, but we need to turn toward life — Mollie’s life — because Mollie's nobody's victim." Tibbetts, a student at the University of Iowa, was found dead in a cornfield Aug. 21 by investigators who were led there by farmworker Cristhian Bahena Rivera. Rivera, 24, has been charged with first-degree murder in Tibbetts' death; investigators have said he is in the U.S. illegally and lived in Iowa for 4-7 years.
