Lewandoski is charged with grabbing the reporter forcefully, causing injury to her with no evidence of self-defense or potential confrontation. Many campaign managers have lost their jobs for a lot less in the past, but Trump says he is not a disaster and would stick by him all through.
Trump has hired some of the best lawyers to battle this saying that his campaign manager is innocent, and the lady reporter was the one at fault.
"How do you know those bruises weren't there before? I'm not a lawyer, but wouldn't you think she would have yelled out a scream or something if she has bruises on her arm?" said Trump. "She grabbed me, and she had something in her hand. I don't know what it was; It looked like it could have been a pen. But you know, from the standpoint of where we are, who knows what it is."
Trump has even gone as far as going on Twitter to state that the reporter was lying and that he was considering to counter sue her despite the clear video evidence on display from the scene. Trump seems to have given his rivals ammunition as Hilary Clinton stated that Mr. Lewandoski should not be held accountable as it is Trump himself, who incites violence and aggression at his rallies.
