Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski Will Not Be Prosecuted For Alleged Incident against alleged reporter

Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, will not be prosecuted for simple battery following his altercation in March with former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, a source familiar with the investigation confirms to ABC News.

The state’s attorney in Florida has decided not to move forward with criminal charges, says the source, adding the decision is expected to be formally announced Thursday.

    Is this a surprise? Ms Fields got her 15 minutes of fame from just accusing Mr Lewandowski, and subsequent videos showed he might just have been trying to keep her from rushing Mr Trump. At least he won’t be subject to lawfare.

    Upcoming NYT’s headline:
    Charges dropped
    Michelle Fields hardest hit.

  • I’m glad the courts and the media are so preoccupied with the important things in life, like touching somebody’s arm.

    I heard that somebody in Toronto stubbed their toe on a crack in the sidewalk today — I was stunned that nobody called Police and organized a press conference. Maybe I should report it myself to one of the major media outlets — I heard you could get up to $10,000 as a finders fee for an earthshaking story like that. A stubbed toe, somebody has to scratch their nose, somebody’s shoelaces got untied — these are the sorts of stories the MSM pays big bucks for. The real visceral stuff. Justin Trudeau’s socks — brilliant investigative journalism!

    BTW, did the Indonesian Islamists behead those captured Canadians yet? Not that it matters — I apologize for getting petty and even worrying about it.

      fair and balanced…ppphhhrrrttt

      • He seemed like he was becoming a “media darling” for a while, in a perverse sort of way.

          …sure.. CNN ratings boom with Trump
          some GOP bigwigs were joking on weekend shows “lose with Cruz”
          they have no intention of winning the election
          its all cooked

          • It’s really looking that way. GOP suicide.

    call in radio shows….many ex Secret Service agents have said they would have slammed her face first on the floor…thats their job
    she should not have been that close

    • BeukendaalMason

      And yet the 4+ secret service agents that were around Trump didnt, nor did they slam to the groind face first any of the people Trump signed autographs while Ms Fields attempted to do her job, ask questions. Maybe those call in Secret Service Agents were afraid of Ms Fields pen, according to Trump they are fearsome.

        It’s over.

      • mauser 98

        did they know it was a pen?
        Ms. Fields should find a new job
        equal rights , equal pay ..can’t take the heat
        .suck it up or go bake cookies

          So true. I have daughters that occasionally took some lumps in sports that would have had this little snowflake curled up in the corner sucking her thumb.

          She probably needs a little time out on the Buddy Bench.
