A married Trump donor has told police she feared for her safety when former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski ‘told her he stabbed a man in the back of the head and killed him,’ at a Las Vegas fundraiser where he ‘stalked’ and repeatedly touched her, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

Trashelle Odom, of Boise, Idaho, the wife of a construction company executive, claimed in the police report obtained by DailyMail.com that the married Lewandowski said that he ‘was from a bad part of Boston and to have killed people,’ while seated next to her at the charity dinner at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas on on September 26. 

Odom claimed that on the night of the dinner – which she was personally invited to with South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem by American socialite Jackie Siegel – she was frightened when he allegedly told her: ‘When I was 10, I stabbed someone over and over again, killing him. She added that the father-of-four told her that when he was older, he ‘stabbed a man in the back of the head, also killing him’.

‘I initially believed that he was joking and attempted to laugh it off,’ she noted but the statements came after Lewandowski had already made unwanted sexual advanced towards her.

‘Lewandowski proceeded to come on to me aggressively by first stating that, he works out twice a day, that he runs 400miles a week, and that’s why he can last for eight hours at a time in bed,’ Odom claimed Lewandowski said to her, according to the police statement.

Odom, of Boise, Idaho , the wife of construction company executive, claimed in the police report (pictured) that the married Lewandowski said that he ‘was from a bad part of Boston and have killed people,’ while seated next to her at an event that took place on September 26

‘He went so far as requesting the suite number I was staying in and indicated he was staying in the ‘Elvis Suite’ which I now know as untrue,’ Odom told police.

‘Eventually, he showed me his room key, room 2991, which was next door to my suite, 2989, where I was staying with my sister and children.’

‘Around that time’ Lewandowski told Odom that ‘he does not do anything with his wife – he gets sex elsewhere’ and then ‘commented that Gov Noem is hot,’ according to the police statement. 

Odom told Idaho cops: ‘Those statements, coupled with his demeanor and aggressive behaviors, I was intimidated…and fearful for my safety and that of my family members.’ 

According to her statement, Lewandowski repeatedly remarked about the size of his genitals, too, describing that his ‘d*** is four times bigger than a normal d***’.

He proceeded to touch Odom multiple times.

Her statement to the police read: ‘Lewandowski tried to hold my hand. I rebuffed him. Lewandowski used his pinky to play with my hand. I rebuffed him. Lewandowski grabbed the napkin off of my lap and touched my bare leg. I rebuffed him and pulled my dress over my bare skin to prevent him from touching me again.

Odom noted that ‘these were my first events as a member of the advisory board of this charity, so it was important to me to attend and be supportive’. ‘I never expected to have this experience,’ she added

‘Lewandowski told me that he was ‘sore from a workout’ and proceeded to demonstrate where he was sore from a workout, on the side of his butt, and he (without my permission or desire) touched me there. Ultimately, I believe I rebuffed him approximately 10 times.’

When she tried to get away from an aggressive Lewandowski and return to her room at the hotel where her sister was waiting for her, Lewandowski followed. ‘While descending the stairs Lewandowski repeatedly commented, “Nice a**” to me.’

Odom told the Idaho officers: ‘It was apparent that my reactions to Lewandowski’s stories, threats, and aggressive sexual advances were not normal for Lewandowski as (he) ultimately threw his drink at me, hitting my dress, shoe, and foot.’

Odom noted that ‘these were my first events as a member of the advisory board of this charity, so it was important to me to attend and be supportive’.

The Trump team said they were cutting ties with Lewandowski, one of his longest-serving advisers and his first campaign manager, after Odom’s allegations came to light.

Odom’s husband John Odom said in a statement after the political operative was fired fired from his role as head of the pro-Trump super PAC Make America Great Again Action earlier in the week: ‘Today, my wife took the brave step of submitting a police report regarding the reprehensible behavior of Corey Lewandowski on September 26th, 2021. 

‘Our family wants to thank President Trump for taking swift and decisive action after learning of the events that took place that evening, and for his service to our nation as President, as well as for his future service.’

John penned that he and his family ‘believe in law enforcement, and are hopeful that the police and prosecutors will use this information to pursue justice’.

‘For all others with information regarding this man’s violent, harassing, and traumatizing behavior, we encourage you to speak up. Accountability is sorely needed,’ he added.

‘We are not public people, so it has meant a lot to us to have so many reach out to offer prayers and support. Our family offers our prayers and support to all families impacted by unsolved murders in the Boston area and elsewhere.’  

‘Corey Lewandowski will be going on to other endeavors and we very much want to thank him for his service. He will no longer be associated with Trump World,’ Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich wrote on Twitter. 

Lewandowski was removed from the former president’s orbit years earlier when he was fired as his campaign manager in 2016. 

He would appear to return in 2017 when Trump offered him a job with his administration, which he rejected, telling friends that it was ‘beneath him,’ the Daily Beast reported. 

Three years later Trump appointed him to a Pentagon advisory board in the final weeks of his presidency, which President Joe Biden would block in early February. 

He’s now being accused by PAC donor Odom, who also said that Lewandowski swore while speaking about sex as he repeatedly approached her.

‘It was as if he thought he had a sense of ownership over me, from the start,’ she added. 

A lawyer for Lewandowski, who has been married since 2005 and has four kids, blasted the allegations as ‘rumors’. 

Odom also alleges Lewandowski claims he wielded enormous power thanks to his connections to the former president and said he had committed violent acts earlier in his life.

The statement claims Lewandowski ‘showed Odom his hotel room key’

Odom was one of around two dozen major Republican Party donors at the event which took place during an event at the Westgate Las Vegas hotel for the Victoria’s Voice Foundation, which focuses on substance abuse. 

Odom is said to have appeared uncomfortable at the event while Lewandowski appeared to be intoxicated. 

The statement was sent to police in Boise, Idaho, where Odom lives, with the intention of having it delivered to their counterparts in Las Vegas.

The three-page statement estimates that Odom rebuffed Lewandowski’s physical advances 10 times.  

She accuses Lewandowski, 48, of following her around after leaving the dinner and that he remarked how she had a ‘nice ass’. 

The married Lewandowski is then alleged to have continued his pursuit at a post-dinner reception.

On Friday night, Lewandowski’s attorney, David Chesnoff refused to comment on the police statement claiming not to have seen it yet

Earlier in the week, Odom made a similar statement as she went public with the allegations. 

‘I am coming forward because he needs to be held accountable,’ Odom said. ‘I am blessed to have a loving husband and family behind me. I want other women to know that you can be heard, too, and together we can stop terrible things like this from happening.’ 

Odom wrote how she was afraid upon reaching her hotel room because  Lewandowski’s room was right next to hers. She tells how she timed her departure the following day to ensure she did not run into him. 

‘I went into my room crying and trembling as I did not know if I had just ruined everything that my family had worked so hard to grow,’ Odom said in the statement.

Lewandowski’s attorney, David Chesnoff refused to comment on the statement, saying he has yet to see it. 

‘It’s premature to respond to something that hasn’t been filed up until now and that we haven’t seen and we will respond if appropriate,’ Chesnoff said.  

TRASHELLE ODOM’S FULL STATEMENT TO IDAHO POLICE

On the afternoon of September the 26th, 2021, I was riding in a Las Vegas bus with my sister and several other individuals, including Matt Schlapp. During that time, I was personally invited to attend a dinner with Gov. Kristi Noem by Jackie Siegal. 

I was told that due to limited seating, I was the only one who could attend. Therefore, my family made other plans, and I changed clothes and arrived at the event at approximately 5:30pm to the Benihana private banquet room. At the event, there were seating arrangements, I was seated between Bubba Saulsbury and Corey Lewandowski. 

Almost immediately, there were amicable jokes between Bubba Saulsbury and GOP operative Chris DeWitt (present and across the table) where they referred to one another as ‘Cheese Dick.’ Lewandowski entered the conversation with the comment that his ‘dick is four inches bigger than a normal dick.’ From there, Lewandowski proceeded to come on to me aggressively by first stating that, he works out twice a day, that he runs 400 miles a week, and that’s why he can last for 8 hours at a time in bed.

He went so far as requesting the suite number I was staying in and indicated he was staying in the ‘Elvis Suite’ which I now know as untrue. Eventually, he showed me his room key, room 2991, which was next door to my suite, 2989, where I was staying with my sister and children. 

Trying to change the subject, I asked Lewandowski about his wife and kids, as I am very proud of the fact that I am happily married, with children. Mr. Lewandowski replied that, ‘he does not do anything with his wife- he gets his sex elsewhere.’ Around that time, he commented that Gov. Noem is hot. I have a cell phone case and on the back of it, it displays ‘Mrs. Odom.’ 

Lewandowski saw that and became visibly angry with me and demanded to know why I would have that. It was as if he thought he had a sense of ownership over me, from the start. He stated several times that, ‘he is very powerful and can destroy anyone.’ He said he was close with President Trump and can get anyone elected or can take anyone out. 

The conversation turned to California as Lewandowski told me he was traveling there. I mentioned that I was from a bad area of California near where he was traveling. That is when Lewandowski told me that he ‘was from a bad part of Boston and have killed people.’ I initially believed that he was joking and attempted to laugh it off. 

That is when Lewandowski went into detail and stated something to the effect of, ‘when I was 10, I stabbed someone over and over again, killing him.’ He continued and shared that when he was older he, ‘stabbed a man in the back of the head, also killing him.’ 

Those statements, coupled with his demeanor and aggressive behaviors, I was intimidated and frightened and fearful for my safety and that of my family members. 

I immediately tried to think of how I could delicately extract myself from Lewandowski while simultaneously trying to respect the event and staying near others for safety. 

His behavior was so aggressive that others began to notice and another guest even came over to ask if I was okay. I even texted my sister (and others) in a group message, ‘wtf.’ Lewandowski was watching me type, and so I did not feel safe to expound more. 

Throughout the dinner, Lewandowski willfully and maliciously engaged in a course of behavior that made me scared and fearful. He began to physically touch me. Lewandowski tried to hold my hand. I rebuffed him. Lewandowski used his pinky to play with my hand. I rebuffed him. Lewandowski grabbed the napkin off of my lap and touched my bare leg. I rebuffed him and pulled my dress over my bare skin to prevent him from touching me again. 

Lewandowski told me that he was ‘sore from a workout’ and proceeded to demonstrate where he was sore from a workout, on the side of his butt, and he (without my permission or desire) touched me there. Ultimately, I believe I rebuffed him approximately 10 times. 

When dinner arrived, I was still very uncomfortable, and Lewandowski’s behavior continued. He began ordering me drinks, that I wasn’t drinking, so he ultimately drank them. He also ate directly from my plate and used my utensils. He would occasionally try to play with my upper back with his fingertips. I did not eat. I eventually was able to leave my seat and sought out Chris DeWitt and asked him to help me get away from Lewandowski. I retreated to a small sitting area and called my sister. 

When I hung up I told her that I love her. Lewandowski was right there following me and gave me a glaring look and demanded to know who I was speaking with. I complied, told him my sister, out of fear. As I walked to the elevator, to go to the Verona Suite, where the hosts were having a reception after the dinner on the 30th floor. 

There was an auction, speakers, and socializing. Rick Kofoed was present as was Lewandowski. We elected to take the stairs instead. While descending the stairs, Lewandowski repeatedly commented, ‘Nice ass’ to me. Rick apologized to me stating, ‘Corey does this a lot.’ It was apparent that my reactions to Lewandowski’s stories, threats, and aggressive sexual advances were not normal for Lewandowski as Lewandowski ultimately threw his drink at me, hitting my dress, shoe, and foot. 

When I confronted Lewandowski and asked if he threw his drink at me, I believe he called me stupid. I followed up and asked, ‘Did you call me stupid?’ He responded with, ‘Why, you don’t like that?’ I spotted my sister and went with her up the elevator to the reception on the 30th floor. 

Please note that these were my first events as a member of the advisory board of this charity, so it was important to me to attend and be supportive. I never expected to have this experience. 

While in the Villa, I saw Gov. Noem and intended on introducing her to my sister and stepson, who both had joined me on the trip. Gov. Noem told me that she had texted Corey to stop touching me. This was confusing for my sister and stepson. 

At some point, after I briefly spoke with Gov. Noem, Lewandowski appeared and immediately came over to my stepson, sister, and me. He stated he wanted a ‘private tour’ and beckoned me to leave the group and take him on a tour. I immediately declined and walked off with my sister and stepson. 

I went to the bar on the other side of the suite with my sister and stepson to try and escape Lewandowski and his stalking. I approached Mr. Dewitt and asked him why he didn’t help me. He stated that he told Stacey Kofoed, the wife of Rick Kofoed, so that she could potentially help me. I went to the bar, Lewandowski followed. 

Stacey Kofoed and Chris DeWitt brought me to the other side of the bar to get me away from Lewandowski. Stacey said that, “Corey is always like this.” Lewandowski continued to move around and wrapped his arm around Mrs. Kofoed to try and touch me. He touched my back to which I immediately adjusted my posture and he shot me a nasty look. 

Eventually, Lewandowski left. Gov. Noem left. I stayed to attend the other portions of the event then wanted to head to my room as I wanted to take my family for ice cream on the strip to try and calm down. 

As I walked to the elevator, Rick Kofoed was coming off the elevator. He said he was so sorry. Stacey was talking to Corey. I took the elevator to my room, which I knew was next to Lewandowski. He was in the hall. He looked angry and terrifying. It was very clear he was not sorry for his actions but mad. 

He appeared sober in his speech and actions. I went into my room crying and trembling as I did not know if I had just ruined everything that my family had worked so hard to grow. My family told me that he was pacing outside my room in the hall while on the phone. However, I gathered myself and took my family members out for ice cream. 

After, I was convinced to join friends at the Conrad Hotel, I did, but left quickly after having a glass of water. I made sure my family was with me as I went back to the hotel as I was fearful knowing that Lewandowski was staying next to me. 

I received a call from Mina Lu stating that Lewandowski grabbed her rear end and that she yelled at Lewandowski the morning. She added that he was leaving the hotel in 30 minutes. I intentionally waited approximately an hour with the hope I could avoid him. I then left the hotel in the morning.
