Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will not be prosecuted for battery, according to a report from Politico, although Michelle Fields still has the option of pursuing a defamation case if she wishes. Palm Beach County State Attorney David Aronberg is scheduled to make the announcement Thursday afternoon.
Fields, however, said on Twitter late Wednesday evening that she has had numerous discussions with Aronberg’s office that have not been honored.
Exhaustingly predictably, Fields has received a barrage of hatred from internet-using Trump supporters.
Late Wednesday evening, Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren published a short blog post encouraging Fields to avoid a civil suit.
“She does not want to take the stand in a civil case, subject to rigorous cross examination, that is likely to be on television to discuss a case that the DA won’t prosecute because he does not believe the evidence shows assault,” Van Susteren wrote. “Yes, the burden of proof is less in a civil case, but she is just not going to win and it will be expensive and a heartache.”
Van Susteren added: “PS. Just so we are clear, I am not ‘for’ assault. I know the court system.”
