Michelle Fields, a former Breitbart reporter whose name went viral after she accused Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of assault, has turned a critical eye on Fox News favorite Greta Van Susteren, slamming the popular news host as little more than a “shill” for the Republican front-runner.

The slam came after Van Susteren wrote a post on her website suggesting those who were encouraging Fields to file a lawsuit against Lewandowski weren’t giving good advice.

Fields is looking into bringing legal action against both Trump and Lewandowski for defamation of her character, reported The Blaze.

“Anyone encouraging Michelle Fields to bring a civil lawsuit is not doing her a favor,” Van Susteren wrote. “She does not want to take the stand in a civil case, subject to rigorous cross examination, that is likely to be on television to discuss a case that the DA won’t prosecute because he does not believe the evidence shows assault. Yes, the burden of proof is less in a civil case, but she is just not going to win and it will be expensive and a heartache.”

Van Susteren also said, Politico reported: “Anyone encouraging this young woman to bring a lawsuit is irresponsible to her.”

Fields didn’t appreciate the advice.

She took to Twitter and posted: “I think I’ll pass on getting legal advice from a Trump shill. Thanks tho.”

Van Susteren then responded via Twitter:

Van Susteren, who hosts “On the Record” on Fox News, previously worked as a legal analyst for CNN and earned the American Bar Association’s Presidential Award for Excellence in Journalism. Prior to working in news, Van Susteren was a trial attorney who represented clients for civil and criminal matters in federal and state supreme courts. She holds both a Juris Doctor and a Master of Law from Georgetown Law, and an honorary doctor of law degree from Georgetown Law School, according to her posted Fox News profile.

Fields first filed misdemeanor assault charges against Lewandowski, claiming he roughly handled her during a Florida campaign stop, causing her bruises. That case was tossed and she’s now mulling a civil suit, as WND reported.
