After being shot down in the criminal system, Michelle Fields is taking her claim to the next level.

The former Breitbart News reporter told TheBlaze Wednesday that she will be pursuing a civil action for defamation against both Donald Trump and his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.

Earlier Wednesday, the Florida state attorney’s office for Palm Beach County leaked to reporters that it will decline to prosecute Lewandowski on criminal charges for simple battery against the reporter.

Fields filed the criminal complaint following a campaign event during which Lewandowski had allegedly grabbed her arm and yanked her back.

Fields claimed that the prosecutor had promised to inform her of his decision before making it public, and was not at a all pleased that he failed to keep this promise.

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, who has also had a career as a lawyer, offered advice to Fields on the case on Wednesday, but based on Fields’ response, it wasn’t well-received.
