Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, appeared on Fox News Sunday following the announcement that he would not be prosecuted for the assault of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.
Host Chris Wallace questioned Lewandowski about the recently dropped battery charges. Not surprisingly, he stuck to his guns, insisting that he didn’t even realize at the time that a problem had occurred and it was only when he saw the accusations on social media that he became aware of the situation.
Wallace then pressed Lewandoski on whether he would ever consider apologizing to Fields, if only to dissuade her from moving further with further litigation, such as a defamation suit. Lewandowski’s response was exactly the response you would expect from Trump’s right-hand man.
I’ve never spoken to Miss Fields. I turned over my phone records to the Palm Beach County District Attorney’s office, it clearly shows I called her phone number that evening, when I got back and read about this on the Twitter feed.
I’d be happy to have a conversation with her. But to apologize to someone I’ve never spoken to, and candidly don’t remember ever having any interaction with, I think is something that is a little unrealistic right now.
