ZitatJudge Andrew Napolitano said Wednesday that the battery charge Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski faces should be immediately “dismissed by the courts” and “never should have been filed in the first place.”
Napolitano, who has a financial relationship with Trump, made his comments on the Fox Business Network.
“It’s not criminal battery. It may be civil battery. This is no place for police and law enforcement,” he argued. “This is the moral equivalent of being jostled in a subway. … Not every unconsented-to touching is a criminal event. And the police and law enforcement and prosecutors have no place getting involved.”
The comments came after Lewandowski was charged with simple battery for grabbing the arm of ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields at a news conference earlier this month.
Napolitano said prosecutors have discretion to say “we are not going to charge this person with this event under these circumstances.” He added that “the exercise of that discretion is not appealable.”
The judge urged Fields, who he said he liked and had worked with at Fox, to take her case to civil court “where the level of proof is lower.”
“The courts, prosecutors and police in Florida ought to have better things to do to maintain public safety and protect our rights and our property than this. … This is a case that should be dismissed by the courts and never should have been filed in the first place,” Napolitano said.
Lewandowski prosecutor outed as Hillary supporter Put on Florida Democratic Party's campaign-endorsing council 2016.03.30
NEW YORK – The Florida prosecutor who brought battery charges against Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, supports Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president.
An article published by the Palm Beach Post on Nov. 17, 2015, has been circulating since Tuesday evening because it lists Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg as a member 150-member Florida Leadership Council, which was established by the Democratic Party to promote Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy.
Judge Andrew Napolitano said Wednesday that the battery charge Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski faces should be immediately “dismissed by the courts” and “never should have been filed in the first place.” “It’s not criminal battery. It may be civil battery. This is no place for police and law enforcement,” he argued. “This is the moral equivalent of being jostled in a subway. … Not every unconsented-to touching is a criminal event. And the police and law enforcement and prosecutors have no place getting involved.”
The Left moves the contest to the theater dept and all is done for its effect. Lying becomes acceptable when it suits their purposes.
Here's a PRIME example:
OccupyDemocrats Headline: Trump’s Top Strategist Just Quit And Wrote This Brutal Open Letter To Trump Voters
By Colin Taylor, Mar 28, 2016
One of Donald Trump’s top campaign strategists, former communications director Stephanie Cegielski, has resigned from his campaign in protest of Trump’s ridiculous statement that “only he can solve” the bombing in Pakistan (whatever that might mean). She has penned a devastating open letter to his supporters, explaining to us why she originally supported Trump, and how his excess and dishonesty turned her against him. She issues a stark warning to Trump supporters that the supposed “authenticity” of Trump is nothing but smoke and mirrors, a soap opera character – and that at the end of the day, Donald Trump only cares about himself. A brutal denunciation of Trump as both a candidate and a person, it might be the most complete evisceration of the orange-haired rabble-rouser yet written. snip http://occupydemocrats.com/2016/03/28/tr...r-trump-voters/ ****************
Who could believe this? If true it would be devastating!!! But none of it is true!
Stephanie Cegielski allows her credentials and her closeness to Donald Trump to be COMPLETELY MISREPRESENTED!!! She NEVER WAS one of DT's "Top Strategists" Not Even Close!!! She never even worked for the Trump campaign, NEVER!
She was only hired by a pro-Trump Super-PAC [before Donald shut them down] as its communications director. When Donald shut the Super-PAC down THAT'S WHEN she was out of a job! It's illegal for any employee of a Super-PAC to coordinate or even communicate *in any way* with the candidate!
So that right there leaves the whole story falling flat. Surprised???
"One of Donald Trump’s top campaign strategists, former communications director Stephanie Cegielski, has resigned from his campaign in protest of Trump’s ridiculous statement blah blah blah."
THAT FIRST LINE OF THE STORY IS COMPLETELY FALSE!!! EVERY WORD OF IT!!!
So ....we come to the theater stage of the Left's desperate effort to destroy Donald Trump. Quite sadly Ted Cruz is riding on the coat tails of the Left's efforts, taking advantage of the damage to advance his own cause.
Lying is to be expected! So long as it serves your immediate goals and long term purposes -- DO IT!!! TM

That is going to destroy us," he said, remarking that it's "kind of sad" that the press is the only business protected by the Constitution "because they were supposed to be the allies of the people."
