Trump Manager After Charge Dropped: 'Huge Distraction' Could've Been Avoided
Florida prosecutors announced today that they would not pursue a misdemeanor battery charge against Donald Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.
Newly released security video just before the incident in question shows a Secret Service agent telling Breitbart report Michelle Fields to leave the area, which she does.
But after about 90 seconds, Fields returns to the same spot to try to ask Trump a few questions. Some are calling the video a "smoking gun."
In an exclusive live interview with Sean Hannity tonight, Lewandowski gave his take on the case.
He started by saying he was thankful that Trump and others who stood by him through a difficult time, then expressed regret for the distraction the incident caused.
"This was a huge distraction for the campaign and it should never have been," he said. "If Michelle Fields wanted to have a conversation we could have had a conversation privately and not made it the story that it is today. I'm sorry that this has become the story that it is today. So, I'm glad it's behind us, I'm glad there's no charges moving forward, and I'm ready to double my effort on this campaign to make sure Mr. Trump is elected."
