Note: Despite being a thorough going Cruz supporter I’ve reached out to the Trump campaign and offered to testify against Fields’ credibility now that Fields has doubled down on her implausible claim of assault by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
I stand ready to turn over all text messages, emails, and phone records with Fields, which confirm that Fields is a serial liar with a history of drama seeking behavior upon request by law enforcement. To quote Nassim Taleb, “if you see fraud and don’t say fraud, then you are a fraud.”
Looks like we were right to call bullshit on Michelle Fields.
it’s beginning to look like Michelle Fields assaulted Trump. New video: https://t.co/89OSnl6Fb0

The video published by a Richard Miles shows that Fields is unquestionably a liar.
Look at her facial expressions. They barely change. Is this the face of someone who was violently assaulted?
And, of course, she turns around and gives her story to Ben Terris from the Washington Post.
Terris is a friend of Michelle’s as well as an anti-GOP reporter.
Just reached out to Donald Trump for a story and got this response: pic.twitter.com/23cPJXG2G1

Terris even put that diss in his Twitter bio: it was selectively edited, of course.
Is Terris a dishonest reporter? He sure is.
Compare and contrast Terris’s reporting with the Politico audio.
Washington Post’s Ben Terris supposedly quoting Fields: “I’m just a little spooked,” she said, a tear streaming down her face. No one has grabbed me like that before.”
Politico with audio from Fields: “He literally went like this and was grabbing me down. Like, I don’t even want to do what he just did to me. Oh my God, that really spoked me that someone would do that.” (Fields, of course, hailing from L.A., said it in the most annoying Valley girl possible.)
Was Terris massaging the facts?
“Finger-shaped bruises formed on her arm,” he writes.
How did the bruises form there?
Terris’s investigating knows no limits. He even investigated Trump’s golf game. Nobody even knows how Obama plays golf.
Why does drama always follow Michelle Fields?
I first heard of Fields in the context of a fight she caused at Young Americans for Freedom where her ex-boyfriend Chris Garcia ended up being slashed with a key by her alleged then-current lover Oliver Cooper.
The scene is revealing as this story about Fields alleged assault by Corey Lewandowski continues and continues. The best analysis thus far, I think, is from YouTuber Mister Metokur who rightly notes Fields’s dramatic streak.
This story could have gone away and yet Fields is doing everything she can to keep it going, including most likely leaking the internal conversations of Breitbart employees to social justice warrior publications.
Let’s review Fields’s past for a moment.
When Michelle Fields worked for Students for Liberty Fields she worked in development and didn’t really want to do any work. When approached about this lack of work she threatened to go to the Koch brothers and cut off Students for Liberty’s funding. She was promptly fired.
When she worked for the Daily Caller she refused to do any video work and was promptly fired.
When she worked for PJ Media she accused Allen West of sexual assault. (GotNews.com stands by its initial story that West has a problem with overly aggressive sexual advances of women but we can no longer take Fields’s word.)
She continues to falsely accuse me privately and in public of hacking her LinkedIn account despite threat of legal action by me and the confidences of her bosses to me that she would cease falsely accusing me.
Now that she’s working for Breitbart she appears to be at it again.
When other reporters – including several at Breitbart, both privately and publicly – have been calling bullshit on Fields’s story the reaction from much of the Conservative Inc. and far left punditry has been of one voice: defend Fields’s story at all costs because it hurts Trump. Why are we supposed to believe a woman who makes a claim without evidence?
Rather than investigate Fields’s claims several members of the “well fed right,” including National Review’s Jonah Goldberg along with several “reporters” at the cat pornographer website, have insisted on smearing independent journalists who simply asked for evidence of the assault given Fields history of dishonesty.
Take a gander:
Here’s National Review’s “reporter”:
This Chuck Johnson post Lewandowski just tweeted is straight up disgusting. Foul, sexist, awful stuff.

Donald Trump is a combination of Infowars, Gamergate, Chuck C. Johnson, Stormfront, Hannity, Coulter, and the hardliners at Breitbart.

Breitbart contributor Ben Shapiro has been allowed to use his affiliation with the online publication to go on TV and criticize the decisions of Breitbart management despite a rather tenuous current relationship with the publication.
Shapiro was nearly fired in February 2014 but Breitbart and Shapiro worked out a deal thereafter. Shapiro was sidelined in the Breitbart organization after his “Friends of Hamas” screw up with Chuck Hagel was made public.
Indeed Shapiro has since founded his own organization – the Daily Wire, a competitor to Breitbart – after a dispute at still another job with the Horowitz Freedom Center. Good luck to him on his venture but he’s claiming a relationship with Breitbart that he doesn’t really have as he white knights for Michelle Fields.
Shapiro, who has supported both Cruz and Rubio, has repeatedly called supporters of Trump – who has a Jewish daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, Jewish business parters and friends, etc.– anti-Semitic.
It’s sad to see a former friend do that. Even sadder when he tries to play the anti-Semitism card against you.
Shapiro has used his tenuous relationship with Breitbart and even called for the firing of investigative reporter Patrick Howley for doing his job and raising questions about the altercation. Howley was right but he’s on suspension somehow. That’s shameful.
It’s clear that Trump’s (and Breitbart’s) enemies are also seizing on what’s going on within the organization to advance their own positions. Breitbart communications spokesman Kurt Bardella resigned just as internal communications from Breitbart’s Slack were made public.
Bardella has a bit of history here. He was fired as Darrell Issa’s spokesman after he leaked internal emails written by Issa. The cat pornography website’s Rosie Gray (who has a history of fabrication) published those leaked communications.
Meanwhile Fox News insiders tell GotNews.com that host Megyn Kelly was thrilled when learning of the incident and fast at work to spin the assault in the most damaging way possible.
Daily Caller senior editor Jamie Weinstein, for his part, has hired a booker in recent years to help him maximize his TV image. He should not be seen as a casual observer but integral to how Fields’s spins her image. It was Weinstein who first disseminated this photo appearing to show Fields being assaulted by NYPD when, in fact, it was the NYPD who were helping her up.
Fields, Weinstein, Terris and serial plagiarist Benny Johnson are longtime friends, GotNews.com has learned. And indeed, the way Fields’s story has unfolded smacks of coordination.
It was Johnson who published the story that Fields was filing a criminal complaint.
I’m sure Benny Johnson is objective.
The anti-Trump smear operation distracts from the work of serious researchers and journalists who are vetting presidential front runner Donald Trump.
There’s serious work to be done on Trump’s past but Alinskyite tactics aren’t worthy of our time.

Fields needs to be fired from Breitbart and, given that it looks like she filed a false police report, she needs to go to jail.
