28 @14 Ok. Said I was leaving but this is a little asinine. Regardless of what you think about Fields or the severity of the injury, the point that the whole sorry episode shows is that Trump's campaign does not stop digging when it's in a hole. It keeps digging, attacks allies, and in doing both items makes it worse.

55 Meh, technically yes, its assault but its kind of the "technical legal" version of assault, not the kind you'd particularly think of just hearing the word. For me assault is being hit in the teeth with a beer bottle, not being grabbed and shoved. I don't care for anyone treating a lady like that, but seriously, as assaults go this one is on the low end, and I'm confident 90% of reporters covering political campaigns are going "What? That's just a Tuesday."

98 Can anyone with legal experience say whether these charges are warranted? Will they be dismissed or cold they get a conviction? After the Rick Perry prosecution, trust in a prosecutor is hard to come by. Personally, the video looks very "Meh" but it would be great to hear from someone with experience in working these kinds of cases.

Posted by: RawDogRevolution at March 29, 2016 09:25 AM (10hEu)

99 I agree with those who suggest this is a fairly minor incident. From what I remember, Fields only asked for an apology from Lewandowski. That's it. No big deal, right? All he had to do was say "I'm sorry, I was trying to clear the way for Mr. Trump and I should have left that to the security team. Please forgive me, Ms. Fields, it was nothing personal." How hard is that. Instead, Lewandowski went on to deny that he ever touched Ms. Fields and then apparently there were some funny things that went on in the gossipy world of Breitbart and their friends in the Trump campaign. And then there is the war-of-words that results from any contact with the Trump campaign that isn't fawning. So she gets upset at all this and turns the volume to 11 on it and files charges and then people get involved and post audio and video clips and it becomes a proxy war. And here we continue. But all that had to happen was for Lewandowski to just apologize for something that actually happened instead of lie and then demean Fields. Bad choice.

Posted by: Ms. Fields who wants to be equal until it hurts at March 29, 2016 09:26 AM (gxIP7)

101 Appears to me that he was rushing to catch up to Trump, but as he approached her, he saw that he would have to pivot sideways to get between her and another guy whose back was to the both of them. So he grabbed her arm as he went past as opposed to just bowling her over.

The guy should have said "excuse me" or "sorry" when he made the move, and once she complained, he should have said that he grabbed her elbow as he went to squeeze between her and the other guy, didn't realize that he impeded her as much as he did, and then publicly apologized.

If we had a guy like that , there would be no way that the Progtards could attack him and cause a General Election defeat due to false "woman-hater" allegations.

127 Ok. Said I was leaving but this is a little asinine. Regardless of what you think about Fields or the severity of the injury, the point that the whole sorry episode shows is that Trump's campaign does not stop digging when it's in a hole. It keeps digging, attacks allies, and in doing both items makes it worse. Posted by: lurkingestlurker at March 29, 2016 02:16 PM (k8xvx) A public apology as demanded would be the worst possible PR reaction. An apology is proof of guilt. The next step is that Trump must FIRE Corey. If he doesn't, then the apology is used to hammer him. If he does, then a new event is sought to attack the campaign. Trump and his campaign are playing this "game" correctly. Which shows they are the most qualified to be sent into the fray against the Democrats + Media for the GE.

141 If they didn't lie all over the place and said it never happened, and that Filelds was a liar this would be nothing. A simple apology, I didn't mean to grab her so hard, whatever and this would have disappeared. But the LYING, the DENYING, rather than simply admit making a mistake is an Obama/Clinton tactic and reminds me way too much of that mentality. I will never vote Trump. If I am forced to choose between Trump or Clinton I am voting 3rd party.

Posted by: Tommy V at March 29, 2016 09:29 AM (SRQwr)

142 Looking at the video it's clear that he grabbed her left upper arm as you can see his hand and her sleeve being held. While it appears that he pulled her backwards, I think that's actually an effect of her being held in place while everyone else moves forward. If you look at her feet you can see that they stay in the same area. As for her almost falling to the ground, it looks like her feet might have gotten tangled up or twisted, probably from her lower body still trying to move forward while being impeded. IMO this could jive with her claim of almost falling, particularly since she was wearing heels, but it doesn't jive with being pulled down. Some of the trouble I had was distinguishing her yellow shoes from the light colored pattern on the carpet, but it does look to me like her feet are in an awkward position. More problematic for me is that the bruises from her twitter photo are on her forearm while the video shows her upper arm being grabbed. Now it may be that he grabbed her forearm first but I couldn't really tell from this video if he did and I'm not bothered enough to go look at the other videos for comparison.

143 I also heard that there is audio of when he grabbed her and he said he was going to: "rip your fucking arm off and beat you to death with it and then sodomize your corpse!" Considering that his dick has probably fallen off from leprosy I imagine that last bit was an empty threat.

The same attitude most of us (even the ones of us not big Trump fans) in which the campaign refuses to apologize or back down in cringing fashion to PC and the social justice brigades means they won't back down when they probably ought to, as well. You probably know people with personality traits you admire that get them in trouble sometimes, too. But if anyone here really thinks this wouldn't have been drummed up into the war on women even if he'd have instantly gone to her on his knees with a bundle of diamond-crusted roses, you're deluded.

With the number of people who comment on this blog there has to be at least one person who has witnessed violence being done to someone or has endured violence. Between the ages of 8 an 16 I lived with a violent individual. I was on the receiving end of physical violence, and witnessed violence used against my mother and brother. Battery, real battery. Can you honestly say that you see battery in that video? I see and individual who was grabbed in the midst of a crowd at a political gathering. Not violently attacked. We have enough real crime in this country that chokes our courts, real crime that needs attention and needs to be dealt with by the courts. This is political theater at it's finest.

187 Like it or not, he did commit a crime. Agree with it or not, he's getting charged. The police charged him. If there was no crime, they wouldn't have charged him. Sure, but prosecutors have discretion whether they'll file charges on every crime or not, and typically in this context with this kind of situation and this kind of event, they won't. Usually, people don't even file, because it happens all the time any time security is involved in an event. That guy that tried to grab Trump's leg and yank him down? Got treated pretty badly. He could have filed for assault - and technically he was assaulted. But any sane prosecutor would have shrugged at it.

Posted by: Tommy V at March 29, 2016 02:32 PM (SRQwr) She has demonstrably lied about not wanting to be part of the story and about almost falling to the ground. If there was a serious offense, this should have been handled privately and through the police, first. Instead, it was escalated first to twitter, and to the court of public opinion. The police report was an after thought. It's a media attack, and the behavior doesn't merit an apology.

207 But you can't hold a whole political campaign responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole electoral system? And if the whole electoral system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of representative democracy in general? I put it to you, Greg - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society?

Since nothing is ever his fault and even though he has the highest negatives ever recorded, he is soooooo popular. (Illuminati?)

It doesnt matter if you feel it didnt cause her quite enough physical pain to justify damaging your favorite candidate.

Police also have discretion about what they'll charge someone with. They don't always have to take action with every single case. I'm not saying she has no case, she does. I'm not defending Trump, he's a sleazeball politician and can defend himself. I'm just saying this happens all the time at events with security and given world events seems kind of small ball.

228 Newsflash to obtuse morons: This isn't a big deal because he pushed/grabbed her. It was a busy and crowded room, probably a stressful environment. At the very least, it was rude and unneeded. A basic apology- "hey bumped into you- it was accidental and take responsibility" would have put this into the dustbin of history. Instead Trump and Corey call the woman a psychopathic liar and scumbag. Scream it was delusions. Scream it couldn't have possibly occurred. And then the trumpkins carry this on to the next stage with the bitch, slut, whore, all kinds of disgusting garbage. I believe she was also part of a jewish conspiracy if alt right twitter is to believed on Ben S's page. That is why people are mad and this is yet another reflect on Trump and his followers' disgusting character.

I believe she was also part of a jewish conspiracy if alt right twitter is to believed on Ben S's page. That is why people are mad and this is yet another reflect on Trump and his followers' disgusting character. Posted by: bob First, you conflated the people actually involved with their supporters. Second, if they ran her name after the fact, they probably came up with her BS stories about the NYPD and Allen West. So it's possible that instead of just saying that they didn't remember, or denying it, they responded in their usual brusque fashion. I don't know. If they are as aware as we are about most reporters being dem operatives with bylines, AND the pnchat for Crazy to come out around politics AND wealth, this isn't likely the first time it's happened.

My wife saw the video and had that exact same response. Then several days later I happened to watch the same video at full speed, not slow mo as was originally published. She looked at the normal speed video, her brow furrowed, and she got really pissed off that she had been manipulated. The speed of the video makes a difference regarding your interpretation of the event.

313 Ms Fields entered the area secured by the Secret Service surrounding a presidential candidate as he was making egress from a building. She entered the area not the other way around. This is a felony. A federal felony that the guy who rushed The Donald at a rally was charged. While not running at him, she was sticking her hands out to touch him which is a no-no. The issue is that Lewandowski is not an agent although he appears to have permission to be within an area secured by the Secret Service. This does not appear to be a state or city matter but a federal one. His attorney should move for dismissal on those grounds. The DA is an idiot.

>>>More problematic for me is that the bruises from her twitter photo are on her forearm while the video shows her upper arm being grabbed. Now it may be that he grabbed her forearm first but I couldn't really tell from this video if he did and I'm not bothered enough to go look at the other videos for comparison.<<<

 

Yep.  It seems off.    The finger bruises were on the outside of the forearm.  It didn't see him make contact there, but this video its hard to tell.  Agree,  he may have or may not have.   It does look like he gets a pretty good grip on her arm.  But it is the correct arm.

I'm willing to give her a pass on the contact.  At this point I don't think this is a crime.  Its awkward, unprofessional but it might not outside the bounds of social contact in a crowd situation although its at the boundary at least.   

I actually try and avoid all physical contact with humans outside of immediate family.  You people are nuts.

I recall during the looting in Ferguson, when Hoft put up a photo of an armored vehicle at Gateway Pundit and very luridly headlined it something like U.S. ARMY TANKS DEPLOYING TO FERGUSON STREETS / MASS SLAUGHTER IMPENDS.

The photo was not even of an actual tank. But rather of an Army self-propelled gun on the back of a trailer, being hauled along an interstate highway some distance from Ferguson proper, transferring between depots. Needless to say, no armored units showed up.

Do you see her arm pulled out its socket, blood flying everywhere? No, it wasn't that bad. Having lied about not wanting to be the story, and about the facts of the story, and having demanded a public apology where none is merited ... I look forward to seeing what happens in the legal process. The newest info about the SS detail warning her away twice? That's going to be lovely testimony in a court.

386 The only defense that the Trump fans seem to offer are straw men consisting of wild exaggerations of what Michelle Fields claims happened which they knock down to the applause of the other Trump fanbois. What the video shows is that Michelle Fields modest claims seem to be the truth. The event itself does not reflect badly on Trump who was probably not even aware of it at the time. It does not even reflect that badly on Cory Lewendansky who was just doing his job a bit too enthusiastically. What does reflect badly on Lewendansky is that he lied and he was not willing to fall on his sword to protect his candidate. If Trump keeps Lewendansky on after this video has come out, it indicates that he endorses lying or that he has really bad judgment in hiring. Trump really has no other option but to tell Cory Lewendansky"You're fired".

396 Lewandowski does not necessarily have to be lying in his initial statement about Fields after she made this claim public. He may not have remembered the incident or her at all. He attends all Trumps rallies I presume. Look at how many people are surrounding Trump in the video and trying to get his attention. Why would she necessarily stand out? I imagine that she thinks she is unforgettable in her own mind, but his closest staff have to deal with people like her all the time. I would expect that he routinely pushes people away from Trump to protect him. They have reason to be paranoid about crazy people getting close to Trump.

They should have just apologized, and the refusal to do so is one of several items that hardened my opposition to Trump. Mostly I blame Brietbart for turning this into a circus, and not settling this thing privately. 4) He won't lose any votes over this, but he won't gain any either. This incident, combined with the Heidi Cruz tweet is hardening his ceiling. Ultimately, this has been poor campaign strategy.

Posted by: Ms. Fields who wants to be equal until it hurts at March 29, 2016 10:16 AM (gxIP7)

438 Michelle Fields is not a conservative. She is either a liberal or a liberal Republican. She has praised OWS and regurgitates SJW talking points about police brutality in her CSPAN interview. She also seems to be dumb. Her big question for Trump in this video is about affirmative action like anyone gives a crap about that right now. Posted by: L, Elle at March 29, 2016 03:12 PM (2x3L+) Poppycock! I've watched lots of videos of her on PJ media trolling OWS. Now I know you're a clintonite.

There are excellent arguments to make against Trump.   Things he really is weak on and that matter.

His campaign manager being an oaf isn't one of them.  Even if don't like the way the snafu was managed.  Its a process argument for pete's sake. 

There are solid fundamental reasons why people should consider whether or not to vote for Trump.   What are his positions, will he do what he says, can he do what he says, can he even win? What other options are out there. . . . all of these things are important things to talk about.  

Mr. Lewandowski and Ms Fields are not among these things.  As delightful as it is to delay thinking about hard stuff in favor of wallowing in social scandal, it ain't gonna help my babies . . . .

She should quit this line of work or stand by the sidelines instead of muscling her way into a packed crowd to get near Trump if she doesn't want to be touched or manhandled. If you guys want to white knight her out of some sense of chivalry or strict interpretation of assault, that's fine. I think she is a big fcking cry baby who is loving all the attention she is getting. Go watch her CSPAN interview on OWS. She is not a conservative. She seems to be using Daily Caller and Breitbart just for a paycheck and to further her career.

I think Lewandowski erred in intervening out of zealousness and a protective instinct that kicked in when he saw someone get so close to his employer. He should have let the SS deal with her. I doubt he thought it through and just acted instinctively. I can't imagine he would have recognized her or knew that she worked for Breitbart.

I didn't understand it either. The first several videos showed no clear or obvious physical contact despite claims to the contrary. That's why I didn't believe Fields. This one shows contact. So she clearly was pushed or pulled away from Trump. I still don't care. I have been treated rougher at Mardi Gras on Bourbon Street by a drunk mob. She is a big cry baby. She should quit this line of work if she expects never to be physically touched in a crowd that she has forced herself physically into.

Actually and intentionally touches or strikes another person against the will of the other, or 2. Intentionally causes harm to the other person. What Lewandowski did was misdemeanor battery under (1)(a)1. And whad'd'ya know, that's exactly what he was charged with. And he could've avoided it by simply apologizing to Fields at the time. But the Trumps are smarter than everyone and better than everyone; they never apologize, never take a step back and consider options. And now, he's charged. By Jove, that was clever of them, eh, wot?

508 Talk about opening Pandora's box. Wait until the Secret Service is charged with simple assault when grabbing some reporter who gets to close to a candidate. My defense would be she posed a threat to the candidate so I grabbed her. Next case your honor.

Lewendowski is not SS and does not have police powers or the right to grab people with impunity. And good luck showing Fields was "a threat to the candidate".

509 Since the Secret Service has said Fields touched Trump twice as they were walking (and was told to step back) should Trump look to file simple battery charges against her? Seems her touching meets the statute, and against a protected Presidential candidate no less!

Who needs legal due process when white knights can try offenders in the Court of Public Opinion?

Posted by: ReactionaryMonster Bravely supporting kittens at March 29, 2016 03:51 PM (uURQL)


Who's trying him in the court of public opinion? Jesus. The police department in Florida felt there was sufficient evidence to charge him with battery. He's been charged, and now owns a notice to appear for a crime which can carry up to a year in prison. They looked at the tape, recognized him, saw him commit an act, charged him with the crime and here we are.

Sure is a lot of hair splitting going on around here. Oh, look, a strawman. Over there is some parsing of what the word IS IS. Over here is a nothingburger statement. I think I just heard Hillary say something about what difference does it make.

Then others in the same group say that laws and civility don't apply unless the victim is from a certain group, in this case you must be a verified conservative or you can't be aggrieved.

515 it's kind of astounding how so many people willfully miss the point.  All the Trump campaign has to do that night is say "we're sorry, it was an oversight, here's a free dinner on me" or something and this disappears.    Just act like a normal human being after the fact and this is gone.

But no, the entire campaign has got to act like Trump, and any challenge is seen as a direct challenge to his virility and the Purity of his Bodily Essence.   So everything, even the tiniest challenge, is met with Absolute Denial and stonewalling - EVEN THINGS THAT ARE TOTALLY TRIVIAL.

It's not about the grab; the issue is that the response clearly demonstrates that Trump is a functional psychopath who is unfit to his core to lead this country.   And his fans are the equivalent of those sad women who write letters to Charlie Manson begging to marry him.   Some people just wanna be abused, as the song goes, but don't drag the rest of us into your own masochistic hell, just because you have Daddy issues.

The police department in Florida felt there was sufficient evidence to charge him with battery. He's been charged, and now owns a notice to appear for a crime which can carry up to a year in prison. Police departments don't file charges. He's not appearing for a crime, he's been accused of one and will then be tried in a court to determine if he is guilty or not guilty. They looked at the tape, recognized him, saw him commit an act, charged him with the crime and here we are. Shouldn't pass off your speculation as fact. A complaint was filed, evidence was collected, and the prosecutor filed charges. *That* is fact.

Lincoln didn't receive a single vote in all of the southern states when he ran for president. Not one. Is it possible that Trump won't get a single female vote?

But these negatives will all disappear when he debates Clinton and calls her a stupid ugly fat dishonest corrupt lesbian with cankles. Yes, that will sway the female voter.

520 To all the Trump people saying the grab is no big deal: you're right, it wasn't. And then the Trump campaign made it a big deal because they're a bunch of incompetent, impulsive liars. Cory'so dumbassery turned it into a big story. A story that played into one of Trump's biggest weaknesses and the favorite DNC media attack (#waronwomen). And then he doubled down on stupid and got criminally charged. But no, Trump's gonna be a great President because he's going to use his business skills to hire only the best and brightest. Like Cory Liardowsky This stupid thing flipped a lot of people (including Ace) from Trump friendly to never Trump. It caused a small scandal and employee rebellion at one of his biggest media boosters. AND it was all a punch from nothing due to sheer incompetence from Trump's top guy. It single handedly disproves the idea that Trump is some sort of master of media manipulation. He's not--he's just a master at getting attention. Trump's big vaunted "medIA advantage" is a freaking joke. Like when Lizard Mair's package scored an own goal with that dumbass melanin ad, and Trump managed to spin the situation to be more damaging to HIM.

521 Y'all need to get your facts straight. Lewandowski is charged with battery - an intentional, unwanted touching- and not assault - a threat of harm or unwanted touching. He may be guilty of nothing more than moving her aside while striding on his way across the room. No intent of harm has been shown or proven.

Posted by: Factcheck at March 29, 2016 11:18 AM (XRCeV)

522 The way I see all this: - Every person involved in this incident has given some false statement - Every observer has already decided what's happened. Videos will only reinforce what they already believed. - It's fine with me any decision you've reached based on the evidence presented. The only thing that isn't allowed is believing the resolution in court is a minor issue. - If Corey gets any kind of punishment, nothing can be salvaged. Maybe Trump wins enough delegates, but it will be president Hillary. - If Corey gets exonerated, Trump team gets a big win. He'll claim to be the target of a political persecution, he gets cred for standing by his guy instead of taking the easy road and it will be milked for months. It obviously doesn't necessarily mean he'll beat Hillary. - Piers Morgan is a shitlord, Ben Shapiro calls him sexist, a circle has four sides.

523 "Since the Secret Service has said Fields touched Trump twice as they were walking (and was told to step back) should Trump look to file simple battery charges against her? Seems her touching meets the statute, and against a protected Presidential candidate no less!"

Casual contact does not meet the statute, to violate the statute the accused must have the proper "mens rea", or guilty intent.   In the case of Lewandowski, it was the intent to physically control her positioning through aggressive physical grabbing.  Casually bumping someone while in a crowd is not battery, otherwise everyone at every sporting event in any stadium ever could be charged.  And Trump killed his chances for making any claims against her by stating publicly for more than a week that nothing of any kind had ever happened.  His own words from the last week can always be used in any courtroom to show that in his opinion, nothing untoward had happened that night.

But it is also astounding that so many seem to be ignoring the fact that she only pressed charges because the Trump campaign was saying "you're lying, if you were telling the truth why don't you press charges?"  So she does what they ask for, and now the Trumpbots are all butthurt and whining "oh you're such a big meanie, why did  you press charges?"

Because you literally and specifically asked for it.  Doesn't get any more simple than that.

525 I've seen worse "batteries" on Black Friday at the mall. Michelle Fields violated the Trump Secret Service circle. That's a felony right there (if the SS decided to charge her). Trump's SS detail has confirmed that she touched Trump twice (that's 2 simple batteries) and was warned by SS to get back. The pictures of her alleged bruises are on her forearm she claimed were from the incident are brown (indicating at least a week old), yet Corey is clearly touching her upper arm, not her forearm. She claimed point blank that she was jerked back with such force she almost fell down -- that didn't happen and not anti-Trump hysteria changes that. And that is what Corey was denying when he said he didn't "touch her" -- he didn't jerk anyone so hard she almost fell. Expecting him to remember this quick brush-aside is bogus. Trump supplied this tape we're seeing today to the police -- it's from his facility. If you think he didn't have lawyers review it before that, you're crazy. The Dem Hillary supporting police chief couldn't help bringing these bogus charges which will be quietly dropped after the campaign season is over. The MSM didn't give a shit about our ambassador and 3 others being murdered in Benghazi, nor about our ATF officer being murdered in Fast and Furious, nor about Hillary's email server. THIS they're setting their hair on fire over. Anyone who really thinks they're on the right side to be joining the MSM on this -- you're wrong. You're supporting using the police to punish your political enemies on trumped up charges (no pun intended).

Posted by: JT at March 29, 2016 11:30 AM (CZaQB)

533 Factcheck - you don't quite understand what the separate charges of Assault and Battery constitute, although you get kinda close. 

Assault is the threat of an act, with the intent to control someone's actions by means of the threat.

Battery is the actual act, with the intent to control someone's action by means of physical coercion.  Pushing someone out of the way, if that action is unwanted, qualifies as battery.  So does unwanted grabbing, or hitting, or any of a host of physical actions. 

Although these two often happen together, assault can happen with no actual touching, and battery can take place with no words spoken at all.  Usually the question is only whether or not the touching took place.  Since the tape exists, and clearly shows that the touching happened, then the applicable legal phrase would be "res ipsat loquiter".  Or to put it in laymans terms, Lewandowsky better cop a plea and take probation.

"He may be guilty of nothing more than moving her aside while striding on his way across the room."

You have just described an actionable act of battery, especially in a case of a man shoving or grabbing a woman.

And keep in mind, for those of you that are claiming this is "abuse" of a woman, if he offers an apology for his actions, he is by default admitting to his "abuse" of a woman.

There is no requirement to show any level of harm from a battery, the only legal requirements are to show that the physical contact took place, that it was done intentionally (mens rea),  and that it was unwanted.   A man lightly squeezing a woman's breast area, for example, can be charged with battery as well as sexual assault if the touching was unwanted.  In this case, the bruising simply confirms the level of severity of the touching; but no physical evidence of harm is required for the law to have been violated. 

And it is no legal defense to state that the injured party was initially reluctant to file charges; that is considered the default position of a reasonable person.   As we keep saying, she only pressed charges because Team Trump pushed her into doing so.

Defending a thug who hurt a woman and then lied about it even though there were security cameras everywhere is bound to do wonders for Trump with female voters.

560 Mr. Trump is absolutely right--she was assaulting his person and threatening Mr. Trump with her ink pen weapon. I know because the same thing happened to me. One day, I was walking through Brentwood wearing a ski-mask and gloves, innocently holding my Bowie knife when some woman and her boyfriend tried to knock it out of my hand. Five times. With their throats. Bitch had it comin'.

561 Salty Donnie, you are precisely correct, thank you. SJWs always double down. And they always project. See Tom, exhibit A. "Insane" is his favorite insult to hurl. And sometimes you find SJWs right here in the comment section of this once great bastion of right-wing ideology. Whoddathink we'd ever see this sad day?

562 Posted by: Burn it to the ground at March 29, 2016 05:20 PM (r6Gx0) Forget it, they only see what they want to see, they only remember what they want to remember. That's why they keep saying things that nobody but them have been claiming for the last few weeks. Their story keeps changing so they say THE story keeps changing. Bottom line, Trump is a dishonest douchebag that attracts people who identify with him. That's fine, but it's also going to get either Hillary or Bernie into the White House because the rest of us don't see enough difference to support him under any circumstance.

563 "Reluctant to file charges is a very different thing than planning to brush off the charges because it was so minor of an offense"

You're taking other people's words and imputing them to Ms. Fields, but in fact there is no record of her ever saying that she considered it a minor offense, just that she was originally reluctant to file charges.   You can't use other peoples remarks against her.

From a lawyers point of view, (or from the DA's), Ms. Fields has been the perfect client, in that she has acted consistently from the beginning and has never changed her story.  On the other hand, Lewandowsky is a defense lawyers nightmare, since he publicly lied in an undeniable way several times.   That's why he's gonna have to take a plea and probation, if it goes to a jury they'll give him jail time for the arrogance alone, and also because of the man vs. woman thing. Juries are like that.

564 Imagine me a Trump admin filled not with any "great people" at all, but instead with a bunch of assholes, tripping up left and right, the press and media on fire with disgust and condemnation, and Trump digging a hole so deep it'll reach Chy-nah.

565 You're taking other people's words and imputing them to Ms. Fields, but in fact there is no record of her ever saying that she considered it a minor offense, just that she was originally reluctant to file charges. You can't use other peoples remarks against her. I was discussing someone else's hypothetical, and explaining to him that it's a bad idea to say, "I was going to brush it off because it was so minor before changing my mind." Great job proving how grievious of an incident this is... As for what Fields has actually said, her initial story does not match the current video evidence, and I look forward to her charges getting shot down in court. At best, she might get a tiny wristslap of a penalty on Corey ... but now the precedent is set that her battery on Trump needs to be prosecuted. That's why he's gonna have to take a plea and probation, if it goes to a jury they'll give him jail time for the arrogance alone, and also because of the man vs. woman thing. Juries are like that. Are you a lawyer?

Jeezus, I guess the actual truth doesn't matter?

But no, that's giving in to the liberal media and is being PC and it's what the establishment does and we must be tough and never apologize and never show respect for others.

Lunatics, damned lunatics. Everything is war and we must destroy and kill them and attack.

Attack, destroy, they're evil and we must win.

I would call it a Republican administration. I don't mean to be disrespect to you, but I'm going to be none the less, what is wrong with you? Why would you think otherwise? What kind of bizarre warped sense of reality do you live in where you think there is a GOP administration that is not going to be dogged relentlessly by the media? What is it you think you can do to convince them not to say your a racist, misogynist, hater McHateyface? Have you been under a rock for the past couple of decades?

You know there seems to be some mild type of insanity that's running through the right. It's this bizarre belief that if you can only get the invocation right, that if you can just say the words in a very specific manner, then the media will not call you a misogynist, racist. That if you play fair then they by extension will be shamed into playing fair. How has that worked out for you so far?

Posted by: DFCtomm at March 29, 2016 01:33 PM (flJ92)

570 You apologize because it's the right thing to do.

But you think, "The liberal media will call us names so we must never apologize or show weakness."

It's not a question of "playing fair". It's called standing by your own principles and acting like a decent human being.

But I know, that's weak and the liberals will win and we must never, ever, ever show any error. Because they are mean and cheat.

572 It's not a question of "playing fair". It's called standing by your own principles and acting like a decent human being. Submitting and losing to liars is not a principle, nor is it a decent thing to do. Fields lied about what happened. Her account of what happened, In Her Own Words, does not match the video evidence. She is welcome to press charges and see this through the legal process. If she was actually wronged, you should be delighted that Corey is about to get fined and punished, rather than complaining about how so many people are mean and indecent.

574 "Fields lied about what happened. " You misspelled "Lewandowski", who quite clearly lied about not touching her. You guys have now abandoned that untenable position and are trying to argue about the severity of the touch. Won't work. Your guy Lewandowski lied. Provably. And repeatedly. Your guy Trump then lied. Provably. And repeatedly. Ask Richard "Third-rate Burglary" Nixon how that works. Ask Bill "Impeached and Disbarred" Clinton how that works.

That wouldn't have stopped this. This is all they've got left. Well, that and his own tendency to stick his foot in his mouth. However, they've about pushed it too far, and now this blown up bunch of crap is about to go positive for Trump thanks to the loyalty he's showing to his employee. I'm pleasantly surprised that he's got the sand to stick with the guy.

577 Reporters are always trying to access Presidential candidates, and it's part of the job of the campaign manager to essentially act as "bouncers" towards them, and that's all this looks like. This shows the narcissism of Fields in her "how dare you handle ME that way" attitude (when they're all treated the same way), in her exaggerated initial account of having almost been knocked down (which is laughable), and especially in her getting enraged at nobody even remembering this "nothingburger" incident with a nobody - and pressing charges. Then quiting when her bosses wouldn't climb on board he Special Snowflake train (a few other special snowflakes followed). Gimme a break! It also shows the media bias (even on Fox, which seemed to have warmed up to Trump after Rubio faltered) which is focusing on Trump's people "lying" for apparently not having remembered a non-event with somebody they'd never heard of, rather than the obvious fact that Field made a big fuss over nothing, to the point of lying about it herself, saying she had almost been knocked down. I can't imagine anybody - especially a male person - agreeing to be interviewed by this kind of drama queen. Ordinarily, her career would be over, but perhaps this will somehow make her a Darling of the Left and she can go work for MSNBC, if Megyn Kelly doesn't beat her to it.

578 This SHOULD have been a nothing story. Lewandowski (I probably misspelled, but I'm not going back to get it right) should have immediately said that he didn't intend to harm her, he was just protecting his candidate and he's sorry that hurt her. And then nothing else would have come of this. It's a NOTHING story... Instead, he doubled down on "I DIDN'T DO NOTHING, NEVER TOUCHED YOU, NEVER SEEN YOU, YOU'RE JUST NUTS!" When the video backs up her story that he did grab her and move her around, and not his of "I didn't do nothing!" it's now about how Trump and his supporters will not apologize for anything. Except now the Trump supporters are trying to say that "it's just a nothing story! He didn't really hurt her all that bad". Great, that means that a simple apology should have been the response from Lewandowski and the Trump camp, right? Sooooo.... where is it?
