The Donald Trump campaign is breathing a sigh of relief today on news that Corey Lewandowski will not be prosecuted for assault on former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.
On March 8, after a press conference at Trump National in Florida, Michelle Fields ran up to Trump and grabbed at this arm when Corey pulled her away.
She said that he almost took her to the ground, and then posted pictures online of bruises on her arm.
A different story came out when Trump, the owner of the building the incident occurred in, offered the video footage to the police to show what really happened.
After giving the footage to the police it was clear that there was no justification for charges against Corey, and today we find out they he will not be prosecuted.
Michelle Fields commented on Twitter when news started to seep out last night about Corey not being charged.
Prosecutor’s office told me they would inform me of decision tomorrow. If reports true, guess they decided to leak to reporters first. Ugly.

Michelle went on Megyn Kelly’s show last night on Fox News and said she will seriously consider civil charges if he is not charged criminally. So this whole thing might not be over.
What nobody is talking about is the fact that any other politician would have instantly fired their campaign manager if they had been in the same spot. Donald isn’t a politician and stood by Corey.
Now that the dust is settling, it looks like Donald made the right call. He didn’t abandon someone who has helped him get to where he is this election, and he didn’t let other people influence his decision. Something we haven’t seen in a politician in a long time.
