Trump Campaign Manager Smears Reporter He Allegedly Assaulted by Citing Chuck C. Johnson
Following up on our story from yesterday about the Breitbart “News” reporter allegedly assaulted by Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, we have a few items of interest.
First, the incident was witnessed by Washington Post reporter Ben Terris:
As security parted the masses to give him passage out of the chandelier-lit ballroom, Michelle Fields, a young reporter for Trump-friendly Breitbart News, pressed forward to ask the GOP front-runner a question. I watched as a man with short-cropped hair and a suit grabbed her arm and yanked her out of the way. He was Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s 41-year-old campaign manager.
Fields stumbled. Finger-shaped bruises formed on her arm.
“I’m just a little spooked,” she said, a tear streaming down her face. “No one has grabbed me like that before.”
Fields posted a photo of the bruises on her arm:
Even though there’s a photo of bruises and an eyewitness, the Trump campaign is denying it ever happened and accusing Michelle Fields of exaggerating and trying to make herself part of the glorious Trump saga:

But even more ridiculous and offensive, Corey Lewandowski is now trying to smear Michelle Fields by citing… wait for it… the awful blog of notorious stalker Chuck C. Johnson, who was permanently banned by Twitter for targeted abuse and harassment.
Michelle Fields is an attention seeker who once claimed Allen West groped her but later went silent. https://t.co/J86Ej42eYx
You knew it was just a matter of time before the Trump campaign converged with the horrible, totally discredited Rage Furby, didn’t you?
