CNN contributor Corey Lewandowski is no longer receiving severance payments from his time as Donald Trump's campaign manager, Politico reported Thursday.

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota announced when introducing Lewandowski on Thursday morning that the campaign had paid the amount remaining on his contract in a lump sum.

"In previous appearances we have told you that Corey was still receiving severance from the Trump campaign," Camerota said. "That is no longer the case, we are told. Are you done with those payments?"

"Amazing, everything comes to an end," Lewandowski said.

Politico reported that the decision came from the Trump campaign, which considered news of the payments a "distraction."

CNN hired Lewandowski to provide commentary on the presidential race after he was fired as Trump's campaign manager in June, but ethical questions have lingered over Lewandowski's continued involvement with the campaign, the severance payments and the nondisclosure agreement he signed with the campaign.
