Former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields said Donald Trump and his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, are both lying about her assault. 

"This shouldn’t have been such a huge story," Fields told CNN's Brian Stetler. "If I had just received an apology as I was told I was going to receive, which is why I was quiet the first two days -- this wouldn’t have been such a huge story. The reason why it’s such a huge story is because Corey lied. Donald Trump lied."

"They defamed me," Fields continued. "And they went on this huge smear campaign against me. And I think it sheds light on the character of the campaign and I think a lot of people were surprised by their blatant lies about me. That’s why it became a huge story."
