Back in March, reporter Michelle Fields made headlines when she falsely accused Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of assault. Though video footage later proved Fields had made the assault up, she has yet to apologize to Trump or Lewandowski.
This past Tuesday, Fields sat down with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV to discuss Lewandowski’s recent firing and to promote her new book “Barons of the Beltway.” According to The Gateway Pundit, Fields ended up walking out of the interview after she was confronted with her lies. Here’s an excerpt from their conversation:
Steve Malzberg: Let me ask you this. You don’t want to see him lose his job or his income yet you tried to put him in jail for grabbing your arm?
Michelle Fields: No, I didn’t try to put him in jail. Well, the reason I went to the police was because there was a lot of misinformation. And the Trump campaign, of course, was denying that it happened. Corey said I was delusional. That he never touched my arm. There were conspiracies that there were no bruises that the whole thing was just a big hoax (it was). So the reason I went to police was to get someone who was an outsider who was objective to look at the information and kind of get the videos of what happened. Get the pictures of my arm. And when I spoke to the prosecutor I said, “Look I don’t want to go to court. All I want is an apology.” We agreed to that beforehand…
Malzberg: Wait, wait wait… The prosecutor conducted an investigation with the preconceived condition that there would be no court case? That the prosecutor would aim to get you an apology? That’s what you’re telling me?
Fields: Yeah, that’s not news. That is something I had spoken about before during the whole…
Steve Malzberg: I know you wanted an apology. But why would a prosecutor pay taxpayer’s money? What you’re saying is if a wife is beaten by her husband she doesn’t press charges I don’t think that she can say ‘Hey, go ahead with the investigation. I don’t want want anything to happen to him. I don’t want to go to court, but I want him to apologize.’ I don’t think it works that way. So who is the prosecutor that agreed to this?
Malzburg then quoted this line from her book:
Fields claimed that was not a line from her book, but this is another lie, as this is a direct quote from it. It was then that Fields ended the interview and walked off the set.
We applaud Malzberg for confronting this shameless liar. SHARE if you think she got what she deserved!
