Reporter to pursue defamation charges against Trump, top aide

Former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields plans to pursue legal action against Donald Trump and his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, according to reports. 

{mosads}Fields told The Blaze that she is looking into pressing defamation charges against both Trump and Lewandowski after reports that Florida prosecutors would not move forward with battery charges against Lewandowski.

Fields filed a criminal complaint against Lewandowski after he allegedly grabbed her arm at a campaign event.

Lewandowski and the Trump camp initially denied the allegations, and Trump firmly stood by Lewandowski even after police video was released showing the incident.

Both have accused Fields of making up the claims, with Lewandowski calling Fields “totally delusional” and Trump questioning the authenticity of a photo showing bruises on her arm.
