Ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields recently filed assault charges against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Since then, she's been receiving death threats ordering her to drop the charges or else. The Blaze obtained audio of one phone call, which is extremely disturbing and unfortunately not altogether uncommon for women in the media.
Here's the transcript of the menacing call.
Creep: I am going to find you Michelle, and I’m going to kill you.
Creep: I know where you live.
Creep: You've got 36 hours to drop the charges. I'm dead serious.
Fields: Or what? What are you gonna do?
Creep: I am going to slit your throat.
Fields: Okay, you have serious issues.
Fields: Anything else? Are you just gonna keep calling me and saying this?
Creep: *Hangs up*
According to The Blaze, this isn't the first death threat Fields has received since the incident, with the same individual having allegedly threatened her brother. Fields has also received Instagram messages reading, "I'm going to stab this knife in your heart, just wait" and "You are dead bitch, I have someone watching your every move. See you at the morgue."
The reporter was also forced to relocate to a different apartment after Fox and BuzzFeed published her home address and phone number alongside the Lewandowski arrest report.
The campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, continues to deny the incident happened or that he saw Michelle Fields at the time she claims he grabbed her. The moment before the alleged assault is pictured below.
Fields has since contacted D.C. police, who are now investigating the calls.
As of this article's publishing, Fields has yet to drop the charges against Lewandowski.
