Reporter may file defamation suit against Trump aide
Michelle Fields says she was dragged through the mud and may sue.
During an interview on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Fields suggested that State Attorney Dave Aronberg had dropped the charges against Lewandowski because his family had ties to Trump.
And Fields said that she would not have filed the charges in the first place if she had gotten an apology from Lewandowski.
“I stayed quiet because I didn’t want this to become a story,” she insisted. “The only reason I went to the police was Donald Trump was saying I was making it up. He was questioning the bruises. Katrina Pierson, the national spokesperson for Donald Trump, was going on TV and saying, ‘Well if this really happened, why didn’t she go to the police?’”
“I felt they forced me to,” Fields added.
