Donald Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski spoke out publicly for the first time Thursday night since the alleged incident with Michelle Fields.
On Thursday a Florida State’s Attorney dropped bogus charges against Trump’s Campaign Manager.
Tonight Corey told Sean Hannity he does not even remember the incident with Michelle Fields. He has never met her and was surprised when he was accused of assault when he read about it the next day.

Corey Lewandowski: This was a huge distraction for the campaign and it shouldn’t have been. If Michelle Fields wanted to have a conversation we could have had a conversation privately… I’m glad it’s behind us. I’m glad there are no charges moving forward… What we saw was what she said was not factually accurate with what the tape was showing. So it’s important that that was there.
What we saw was we have an individual who remembers something very differently than the way I remember it. I don’t remember it all, candidly. In my entire interaction with her was on that video tape. I’ve never met her before. Never spoken to her afterwards. So, my sum total of my relationship with her is about three seconds long. And I know that sounds like a long time but in a three second incident that I don’t recall because it wasn’t very memorable. This has really taken over a big piece of my life and I’m glad it’s behind us…
…When I walked by Michelle Fields I said, “Excuse me. Thank you.” because that’s what polite people do they say “Excuse me” and “Thank you.” And I don’t remember anything more than that.
Corey thanked Donald Trump for releasing the video that exonerated him.
