Corey Lewandowski was taken into custody on the charge that he allegedly assaulted former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, but new information could prove troubling for the prosecution.
That same day, The Boston Herald revealed that the prosecutor in the case was going to be Palm Beach Count State Attorney Dave Aronberg, who also happens to be a long-time Democrat.
According to the Herald, Aronberg gave the Clinton campaign a donation of $1,000 in January, and is currently listed as a member of Clinton’s “Florida Leadership Council.”
When asked whether the connection between Aronberg and Clinton could have “political ramifications,” the prosecutor’s spokesman Mike Edmondson told the publication that it was an “inappropriate request” and refused to answer.
Aronberg is also reported as having lost the Democratic primary for Attorney General in 2010.
This all began after Michelle Fields claimed to have been grabbed and forcefully moved by Lewandowski following a Trump speaking engagement, during which time Fields was attempting to ask the Republican Presidential front-runner about his past opinion of Affirmative Action.
Video of the incident as recorded on CCTV is below:
After Trump supporters cried foul and Lewandowski denied the interaction, Fields posted a photo on Twitter showing her left forearm sporting four finger-shaped bruises.

In a statement, Trump denied Lewandowski’s guilt and claimed that he is looking forward to his day in court. However, new information about the prosecutor could pose a problem for the Trump camp and, if it isn’t addressed, possibly prevent a fair trial.
What do you think should be done in this situation? Should the case be allowed to move forward knowing that Aronberg is a Clinton supporter, or should another prosecutor be given the case? Let us know in the comments!
