A visibly upset Michelle Fields discussed the very damning evidence of an assault on her by Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, during her appearance on The Kelly File Friday night. UPDATED
Against the backdrop of the general violence at Trump campaign rallies has been the assault on Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. She’s a former Fox News contributor and still a regular guest on Cashin’ In. I wrote more extensively about the situation in a previous post, but the gist of the matter is that Fields was roughly yanked and bruised as she attempted to ask Trump a question at a rally. She was informed by Washington Post reporter Ben Terris, who was nearby, that it was Lewandowski who did it. Since then, audio and video has emerged to back up this account but Breitbart’s support for her has been weak tea, to say the least.
After Trump accused Fields of making up her allegations, she filed a criminal complaint of assault against Lewandowski.
On Friday night, Megyn Kelly carefully went over the audio and video evidence. They strongly corroborate Fields.
Fields said, “Trump is trying to say that there’s some sort of conspiracy. We’re talking about Breitbart News and The Washington Post. The idea that we are working together or something is just absurd and I don’t understand how people can believe that.”
