FL State Atty Drops Battery Case Against Trump Campaign Manager
Corey Lewandowski joins Sean Hannity for a cable EXCLUSIVE tonight at 10p ET. Don’t miss it!
The battery case against Donald Trump's campaign manager will not move forward, a Florida state attorney just announced.
Journalist Michelle Fields told police that Lewandowski forcefully grabbed her and left bruises on her arm while she was covering a Trump event in March.
Video from the venue showed Lewandowski reach out and pull Fields away from Trump by the arm.
Dave Aronberg said his office spoke to Fields and that she was clearly disappointed by the decision not to move forward with the battery case.
Aronberg said that Jupiter police found probably cause for a simple battery charge against Lewandowski, but that "despite several media reports" the case was never charged by his office.
After an independent review of the case, he explained that there is a higher standard that must be met for a prosecutor to go forward with a case.
"While the evidence in this case is legally sufficient for the police to have charged Mr. Lewandowski, it is not strong enough to meet the legal burden of a reasonable likelihood of a conviction," he said.
