A group of prominent female journalists have banded together to officially call for the firing of Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.
Formal charges were filed against Lewandowski on Tuesday for misdemeanor battery as video surfaced of Lewandowski grabbing former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields during a press scrum. News of the charges took the media by storm, reigniting the fury felt by many standing behind Fields.
On Wednesday, a group of 16 women journalists signed a letter demanding that Lewandowski lose his job for “inexcusable” and “unprofessional” behavior.
The Blaze’s Dana Loesch and Fox News’ Katie Pavlich are at the top of the list and remain outspoken critics of Lewandowski.

Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren called the statement “stunning” and accused the group of women of essentially engaging in “mob rule” by convicting Lewandowski before having a fair trial.
From Van Susteren’s website:
As an aside, I have tried many, many, many criminal cases and I will tell you this: there is reasonable doubt in this one. This is a very easy defense case. Don’t believe me? Ask any lawyer.
And now look what these women have done to their own work covering the campaigns! These women reporters may want to pull themselves off the Presidential campaign coverage since they have obviously shown their bias. They need to ask themselves – can they be fair in all their Presidential campaign coverage based on this?
There is a big difference between waiting for a jury to decide facts and a verdict whether a crime has been committed and just taking sides and calling for someone’s head.
Van Susteren has been critical of the video purporting to show the alleged assault on Fields.
