Steve Schmidt, who is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and was an official MSNBC contributor up until his new gig with Howard Schultz, reportedly once interviewed to be Trump’s campaign manager.
The source of this revelation was Chris Christie, who shared it in an interview with Hugh Hewitt on Monday:
Though if it is true, as Christie says, that Steve Schmidt interviewed for campaign manager for Trump after Corey "left," that's quite an indictment

This really is big news as we’re not aware of MSNBC ever making viewers aware of it:

Over to you Nicole Wallace:
Wonder, if true, if Nicolle Wallace knew. She eviscerated Mitt when he interviewed for State. For Schmidt to interview as CM would have set her hair on fire.

Well, it’s MSNBC that thought he had principles:
Steve Schmidt is a grifter.
The people who pretend that scumbag has principles are hilarious. https://t.co/sjdWtDgfu7

What’s even funnier is how fast his MSNBC fans turned on him once he signed on with Schultz:
Schmidt is back to being a villain, and it’s costing him dearly among his new MSNBC friends https://t.co/tegONwrwNt

No wonder he kept the Trump interview secret. (If true, that is).
