Report says Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski won't be prosecuted



Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will not be prosecuted on a Florida battery charge, according to a Politico report.

The report cites “sources with knowledge of the situation” as saying that Palm Beach County state Attorney David Kronberg will announce Thursday afternoon that he won’t press charges against Lewandowski.

Lewandowski was charged with misdemeanor battery after allegations of forcefully grabbing a reporter at a Jupiter news conference. After a March 8 conference at Trump National Golf Club, Michelle Fields, a 28-year-old reporter formerly with the online Breitbart News Network, said she was grabbed on the arm by Lewandowski, 41, after she asked Trump a question about affirmative action.
