Ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields turned to Twitter Monday night to go after Sean Hannity after the Fox News host failed to challenge Donald Trump on the alleged simple battery committed by campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
This whole situation is insane. So sad to see my "friend" @seanhannity not challenge Trump on his lies https://t.co/kLTxb8JIqg— Michelle Fields (@Michelle Fields)1459823147.0
Hannity responded to Fields, writing on Twitter that he reached out to her.
Fields then responded to Hannity.
@seanhannity yes u wrote me privately & then brought it up on radio & tv last week that you wrote me privately. What's your point?— Michelle Fields (@Michelle Fields)1459825343.0
Fields made her comments while Fox News aired a one-hour interview Hannity conducted with Trump. Fields alleged last month that Lewandowski committed simple battery against her at a news conference. He was later charged by Florida police.
Lewandowski had initially claimed he never touched Fields and Trump suggested Fields made the entire story up. When surveillance video was released, Trump's story noticeably changed — something Hannity never challenged the GOP front-runner on Monday.
Instead, Hannity said he watched the surveillance video "at least 150 times" and did not see what Fields alleged. The Fox News host also allowed Trump to question Fields' character, suggesting she did not resign from Breitbart, but was instead fired.
The interview came as D.C. police investigate death threats sent to Fields by an individual. Audio, obtained by TheBlaze, captured the suspect telling her that he was going to slit her throat unless she dropped the charges against Lewandowski.
