LOOK: Video Proves Trump Campaign Manager Battered Reporter, Then Lied

He then lied about it to the media afterwards on Twitter.

Washington Post reporter Ben Terris [__wrote a first person account__](https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/inside-trumps-inner-circle-his-staffers-are-willing-to-fight-for-him-literally/2016/03/10/4b2b18e8-e660-11e5-a6f3-21ccdbc5f74e_story.html) of the incident where ex-Brietbart correspondent MIchell Fields claimed assault to the local authorities and Terris published it, but the Republican primary leader’s Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski denied the incident voraciously.

Lewandowski claimed to have never met the reporter.

But now, the orange-faced politician’s right hand man has already [__turned himself in__](https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-campaign-manager-charged-with-battery-in-florida/2016/03/29/bc8791e6-f5c5-11e5-9804-537defcc3cf6_story.html?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-main_lewandowski-2pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory) to Jupiter, Florida police to face charges and will have a hearing on May 8th.

Yet, the Trump campaign continues to [__maintain its campaign manager’s innocence__](http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/local/trump-aide-charged-with-misdemeanor-battery-on-ex-/nqtkY/), which is Lewandowski’s 5th Amendment right to maintain, telling the Palm Beach Post:

“Donald Trump’s campaign released a statement following aide Corey Lewandowski’s arrest saying: He’s “absolutely innocent.”

In the court of public opinion, Lewandowski has lost.

Fields [__in her own words__](http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2016/03/10/3276486/), never wanted to become the story, but it led to her resignation from Breitbart.

Not that any of this will damage Trump, or his supporters view of the man described by the Washington Post’s Michael Gerson as an authoritarian populist, which is a heck of a euphemism for neo-fascist.

However, it might be a burden for the Trump campaign to continue working with Lewandowski, whose public claim on twitter, may go down in political annals as famous last words in someone’s Political Hall Of Shame.

Behold:

For its part in the affair, Breitbart News received low marks for failing to back its own reporter’s account of the story, going so far as to [__place a gag order on its staffers__](http://www.buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/breitbart-editor-ordered-staffers-to-stop-defending-michelle#.mv21WQ7PD) about the incident.

Then Breitbart corporate spokesman Kurt Bardella [__resigned in protest__](http://www.cnn.com/2016/03/14/opinions/breitbart-trump-coverage-bardella/) over the incident’s handling by his reportedly pro-Trump news outlet.

So did lead journalist Ben Shapiro who [__said__](http://www.buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/michelle-fields-ben-shapiro-resign-from-breitbart#.yxKABpn2R):

> “Andrew [Breitbart]’s life mission has been betrayed,” Shapiro wrote. “Indeed, Breitbart News, under the chairmanship of Steve Bannon, has put a stake through the heart of Andrew’s legacy. In my opinion, Steve Bannon is a bully, and has sold out Andrew’s mission in order to back another bully, Donald Trump; he has shaped the company into Trump’s personal Pravda, to the extent that he abandoned and undercut his own reporter, Breitbart News’ Michelle Fields, in order to protect Trump’s bully campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who allegedly assaulted Michelle.”

And now, the wheels of justice will turn, and Trump’s campaign manager will get his day in court.

He’ll have to deny his untoward act to a judge, and possibly a jury of his peers, if he doesn’t take a plea bargain in light of the video evidence against him.

A simple apology to former Breitbart reporter Fields by Trump campaign manager Lewandowski might have been sufficient to avoid this entire hullaballo just a few, short weeks ago.

*Ed. Note: Term “Assaulted” in headline, search slug and lede was changed to battered for accuracy’s sake to comport with police charges filed.*

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
