Reports: Trump campaign manager will not be criminally prosecuted

Reports: Trump campaign manager will not be criminally prosecuted

Corey Lewandowski may walk.

Back to the Corey Lewandowski saga and his grab of Michelle Fields.

Politico reports that the local prosecutor will not pursue the case despite a finding of probable cause by the police:

A Florida prosecutor has decided not to prosecute Donald Trump’s campaign manager for battery after a March run-in with former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, sources with knowledge of the situation told POLITICO.

The decision not to press charges against Corey Lewandowski is scheduled to be announced on Thursday afternoon by Palm Beach County State Attorney David Aronberg….

Aronberg would not comment, but in a POLITICO interview last week, he pointed out that Jupiter police had a low “probable cause” standard to cite Lewandowski for battery. But the responsibility for moving forward with a full-blown prosecution rested with Aronberg’s office, which had to consider whether a crime occurred and whether they believed a jury of Floridians would prosecute.

The failure to prosecute, if it turns out to be the case, will be portrayed as vindication for Lewandowski — but it likely is just the exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

It’s entirely possible that everything in Field’s complaint and the police findings were true, but the prosecutor declined to prosecute because it did not constitute a crime provable beyond a reasonable doubt. We won’t know until the prosecutor’s press conference when he explains the decision.

Remember David Gregory? He committed a D.C. gun law violation on TV, bu the prosecutor declined to prosecute.

Of course, this nuance will be lost in the news cycle.

Amazing how you have spun the dismissal of charges against Lewandowski as though it supports he did something bad and then compare it to Gregory’s felony.

Try this headline.

    It wasn’t a dismissal of the charges is was decision to not prosecute. This part of the story is a nothing burger.

    So, if (when) Lynch declines to prosecute Hillary, will you also be wanting HILLARY VINDICATED headline?

    Ben Shapiro


    DAs have more to do than prosecute minor battery cases. Lewandowski grabbed, bruised, lied, smeared. End of story.

    And, as pretty much always, the lies, smearing, and coverup were where Lewandowski did the real damage to Brave Sir Donald, who could not resist joining in the lies and smearing.

      Ben Shapiro is a little moron pissant that quit his job to support lies told by Michelle Fields. Not very good judgment which makes him disqualified as any kind of reporter.

        Ben Shapiro has severely damaged himself. His blind hatred of Trump set his own professional undoing into motion.

        Guess who went crawling, hat in hand, to Donald at his executive suit located in Trump Tower in New York City yesterday to parlay for a truce?

        A: Megyn

        You just gotta ask yourself… Why would she do that?

          She got advance notice of the news Corey would not be charged and rushed off to Trump Tower hoping to limit the damages.

    Hmmm ….

    Where is your apology to Fuzzy Slippers for impugning her moral character?

    Let me guess, because you have not been indicted, or placed under arrest, and if/when the prosecutor drops the charges, you will be raising your arms in vindication that you have not done anything wrong. (Your cowardly description of your calumny as metaphor or literary device is dishonesty–even bad lawyers would not do that)

    Only you and your ilk, who live in the fantasy world of Trumpland, can celebrate this decision.
    The misdemeanor charge itself was ticky-tacky, but the lying by Trump and Lewandowski over what happened was the greater issue. You also fail to note that Trump/Lewandowski hired Kendell Coffey, a former Clinton appointee to handle this matter.
    That hiring reminded me of the Clinton years where Clinton lied under oath but was never prosecuted. Did you celebrate that as well?

    I am sure the next time you mildly manhandle a woman, and some GOP prosecutor decides to prosecute you, you will plead to the Court that if Lewandowski can get away with it, why can’t you.

      Make sure you stay out of the sun and away from heat sources or you will melt little snowflake.

      You are obviously very disappointed the prosecutor didn’t support the democrat politicians who brought these charges.

      As for lying that would be Michelle Fields from the start. She said she lost her balance and almist fell down. All complete fabrications. And then there is the lie about the bruises. The video and still shots above clearly show Corey touche her arm above the elbow, yet Michelle u sed some photo of some person with faint bruises near her wrist. Complete lie. But your Trump hatred cancels all your cognitive reasoning. Get help snowflake.

      Oh and as regards Fuzzy Slippers. It is her own posts that impugn her character. Not my replies thereto.

    wyntre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 14, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    Trump could charge Fields with invading his Secret Service protected space.

    Barton Brown, the Agent in charge of Holder’s detail, gave evidence supporting Lewandowski.

    Of course you won’t read about that in the U.S> propamedia, just at the UKDM:

    “Among other inconsistencies, investigators found that Fields began the altercation by leaving the press area, entering the ‘bubble’ of Secret Service and staff security surrounding Trump, and touching him.

    Ellis said Fields told her office that she had never touched with Trump, but video evidence shows the Republican front-runner pulling away from her after she makes contact.

    During a video walk-through of the incident, Ellis said the decision was in large part based on the fact that Fields had first made physical contact with Trump as he walked out of a ballroom at his Jupiter country club.

    . . . . .

    Fields, the video shows, left the area where reporters were told to remain and made her way into the protective ‘bubble’ around Trump that consisted of Secret Service agents and campaign staff.

    Ellis described ‘her trying to grab to Mr. Trump in some respect … from an area that she was not supposed to be in.’

    She also said Fields told the prosecutor’s office that she never touched Trump, but ‘that’s not what we see captured on the video.’
    Prosecutors were influenced by an affidavit from Barton Brown a federal agent who once led then-Attorney General Eric Holder’s protective detail.

    Lewandowski’s actions, Brown concluded, were appropriate in the situation he found himself in. He also wrote that it’s not uncommon for close aides to politicians to become part of the security apparatus that protects them.

      James IIa in reply to wyntre. | April 14, 2016 at 4:36 pm

      Informative link. The prosecutor does say that Fields’ touching of Trump may have justified Lewandowski stepping in, which in turn would create reasonable doubt. I had expected the charges to be dropped, but not for that reason.

He’ll always be “Lady Killer” Lewandowsky to me.

Pig. But a fitting pig to work with Der Donald.

You seem desparate to spin an anti-Trump narrative.
You might remember, Mr. Lawyer, that “probable cause” is often merely TESTIMONY, and we know this serial false accuser has had issues with the truth in the past, and in this case as well. It’s just as likely the prosecutor declined to prosecute because there was absolutely no evidence there.

    Shane in reply to cdwoodworth. | April 13, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    Or other things, but hey think (and I use that word loosely) what you want.

    spartan in reply to cdwoodworth. | April 14, 2016 at 9:56 am

    You said:

    This is not even remotely close how our criminal system works.
    For instance, you can not walk into a prosecutor’s office and demand the arrest of Gary Britt for molesting horses in Enumclaw, Washington. You have to have some corroboration to support the charges. Without corroboration, the prosecutor would be opening themselves to prosecutorial misconduct and other career-ending allegations. Thus, investigation is always made before criminal charges are made.
    In this matter, the corroboration is the videotape which shows some contact between Lewandowski and Fields. Without that videotape, there would have been no charges.

    There will be no charge for this legal advice.

Anyway, I look forward to plenty of tears on this site as Trump sweeps the East and elminates Cruz within the next week. At that point the only question will be : will it even get to the first ballot?

Alternative headline:

Despicable loudmouth bully with a history of doing despicable things wont be punished because of the money-men behind him

…but oh well, his actions destroyed Breitbarts website and exposed Trump as the sexiest bully everyone already knew he was.

Plus, Corey is as good as fired already at this point, with all of his responsibilities being taken away and given to others, so theres that.

And it was fantastic for people like Fields, Shapiro and such who have much brighter futures ahead of themselves because of how fantastically they have handled everything. Too bad the Big Orange Goon and his Henchmen had to slander them so much solely for standing up for their own rights and morals, but getting thru it will pay off for them in the future, I imagine.

I would want some of what ever your taking but
I am subject to random pee tests as a condition of
my clearance and employment.

In that Politico interview, David Aron concluded:
We have a higher standard to go forward with a prosecution
So it would seem that his office thinks that the case is a nothingburger.

“We won’t know until the prosecutor’s press conference when he explains the decision.”

Seems like a lot premature ejaculation among the “vindicated” bois.

A prosecutor has lots of reasons to NOT prosecute a very good, clear case, among them it being a misdemeanor in a district where they have to prioritize their resources.

    Mr. Integrity. Some days I have a hard time distinguishing if you are just a fool, a liar, or both.

    Nothing happened to your special little snowflake.

    I’m going with both.

    James IIa in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 4:47 pm

    You didn’t have the advantage of the prosecutor’s statement, but he has now said that Fields touched Trump and implied that he (the prosecutor) wouldn’t be able to get a conviction if Lewandowski claimed to be defending Trump.

      Ragspierre in reply to James IIa. | April 14, 2016 at 8:32 pm

      Which is not a “vindication”.

      He did what he did. There’s no doubt of that.

      At a trial, the prosecutor merely acknowledged that he had a duty to only prosecute cases where he felt he could prove the allegation(s) beyond a reasonable doubt.

      That’s WRT a CRIME, not what happened. We all know (or those of us NOT delusional know) that “Lady Killer” Lewadowski, a frustrated LEO wannabe (look it up) jerked Fields around.

      No doubt. No question. The prosecutor never hints otherwise.

      Then “Lady Killer” lies about what he did, and the rest is history.

Police never had a case against Cory after the overhead video was released by the Trump campaign.

Among the possible reasons he was not charged: not one of the several videos available was consistent with her description of the encounter.

Not a Trump fan, but I thought this was a media-inflated affair and nothing wrong committed (YMMV). He definitely didn’t throw her nearly to the ground as was first asserted.

That said, Trumpalos do themselves no favors with their hysterical responses. A reasoned and unemotional “told you so” would be enough and put a better face forward

I’m not a lawyer but I have been on a jury once or twice and I’m pretty sure I know why this case will not be prosecuted. Even if by the legal nit picking lawyer definition of assault that was an assault, there is no way you would get a jury of 12 that would agree that was an assault. Hung jury at best.

    Let me help you out here. “Assault” and “Battery” are often used interchangeably by the Press and laypersons, though incorrectly. In this case, there was never an “Assault” as that is more of what I call a “mental crime”, as somebody put you in “fear” of an imminent battery. A “battery” is an improper touching, however slight.

    In this case, the prosecutor recognized the complaining witness submitted herself to a political scrum of competing reporters, and got jostled by Corey when she got a little to close to the boss.

    And if I haven’t cleared this up for anybody, let me add that Corey Lewendowski is a prick, his boss is a douche and I’m voting for the Canadian.

    Hope this helps.

A weird thing about Trump backers is they keep trash talking, like it’s a pro wrestling match or Red Sox-Yankees or something. What is that about?

I have to wonder if it was worth it to Michelle Fields to torpedo her career and forever be seen as a whiny little twit just to get her 15 minutes.

Dr. J.,
I respect your learned opinion, but the evidence in the videos, photos, and testimony (especially that by the secret service agent) holds together in a way that undermines the viability of the Fields’ dyad narrative.

Trump supporters can be as annoying as Obots, especially when their numbers are fluffed-up by the black-op caricatures of their foes. Nonetheless, on the balance of the evidence, they look to be right about the Fields’ incident.

Michelle Fields got a little too full of herself, and walked herself off a cliff.

She now has a following of no one.

My favorite part in the whole confluvium was when The Brave Sir Donald whined about the dangerous 120 lbs. reporter and her Bic-bomb.

That was cool…

“The DPRT-oriented big-government state embodies the idea and leadership of Donald J. Trump, the founder of the Trump Brand and the father of Ruling Class Trumpism.” -this message approved by Dear Leader Trump

Reports are that Corey L did apologise after the incident.
I have not heard the video, but people are saying they can hear Lewandowksi saying “excuse me” just after “it happened”.

That is about all the apology you would expect.

So the whole “make a deal just apologize” is probably a lot of sh*t made up by Special Snowflake Michelle.

What’s this I read, regarding bullies?!

“Yellow Snowflake Trump, media darling, and his henchman, Corey Inlieuofdecenci, continue to brandish their asinine natures for all to see.”

No charges filed on Secret Service for shoving a girl out of Hillary’s way

When this first was discussed here, I pointed out that unwanted touching is not ALWAYS a crime. There are numerous exigent circumstances which can make the touching legally warranted. These circumstances have to be investigated and taken into consideration BEFORE arrests are made and charges filed.An arrest can not be made simply because a party to the incident wants one to be made. Unfortunately for Mr. Lewandowski, he will never enjoy a clear vindication for his actions, but will carry the stigma of being arrested for a criminal offense.

What is interesting about all of this is the prosecutor reportedly saying that the POLICE had very weak PC for the arrest. Now, while it is permissible for a LEO to make a warrantless arrest for a battery which he did not witness, it is almost never done, except in the case of domestic violence or child abuse. The common practice in such cases is for a LEA to investigate the claim and then refer the “victim” to the SA’s office where a case filing officer will make a decision on prosecution and issue a notice to appear. However, here we are led to believe that the LEA was responsible for the arrest, not the SAO. Interesting.

Did Lewandowski grab Field’s arm? Yes. The is not contested. Was it a crime? Not necessarily. Was this ridiculous political theater? You bet your bippy. Can anyone here imagine what would happen if the SAO filed charges every time a person was touched or grabbed without there consent? Well, maybe the lawyers would love it, until the money ran out. But it would bankrupt the government. There was only one reason why this arrest was made and that was politics.

Wounded GOP front-runner Donald Trump is quietly setting up a parallel campaign structure, hiring known Republican fixers to professionalize his operation and sidelining his original team.

Under the guidance of his new strategist Paul Manafort, Trump on Wednesday brought aboard Rick Wiley, Scott Walker’s former campaign manager and a former senior party official well versed in the rule-making process that might decide the GOP nomination in a contested convention.

Wiley’s hiring demonstrates how quickly Manafort is consolidating his own power within Trump’s campaign, gaining influence with the candidate and exerting authority over those who had previously reported to campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the campaign.

Lewandowski is losing the tug-of-war, said a former adviser to the campaign, adding

***“Corey has been neutered.”***

Remembering how Megyn Kelley’s career was “toast” according to T-rump suckers some months ago, and how it is objectively at its zenith,

I’ll predict that Ben Shapiro does really well in the future.

UPDATE BY PATTERICO: As I said a while back:

[I]f prosecutors decide not to file charges — and they may so decide — the same people saying that the prosecutors should exercise discretion will take the non-filing as TOTAL VINDICATION OF LEWANDOWSKI and PROOF THAT THE WHORE WAS LYING!!!!!11!1!!!

But you can’t stop stupidity.

You sure can’t.

This is from a professional prosecutor. You might want to listen…

This just in…

Poll: Trump leads GOP by 13 points nationally

Trump has 42 percent support among Republican primary voters nationally, while the Texas senator has 29 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich has 18 percent.

Although Trump still maintains a double-digit edge over his nearest competitor, his lead has decreased from last month’s version of the same poll, when he led Cruz by 20 points.

Trump leads among men, women, Republicans, independents, white evangelicals and those without a college degree.

Cruz leads among very conservative voters and those who attend religious services weekly.

The poll also found that Trump would still hold a 10-point lead over Cruz if the two were facing off head-to-head.

Trump has a 49 percent favorable rating among Republicans to 36 percent unfavorable, according to the poll.

Cruz’s ratings are 40 percent favorable to 32 percent unfavorable. Kasich’s are 32 percent favorable to 23 percent unfavorable.

The poll was conducted from April 8 to 12 among 1,320 adults nationwide. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.


And just as I predicted: Not enough evidence to secure a conviction.

I also like the guy who liked to try to school me that you need ‘physical evidence’ for probabable cause.

Nope. And you don’t even need physical evidence for a conviction. Men have been convicted of rape on the woman’s word alone.

God, they don’t fall from the Turnip truck around here when it comes to anything Trump, do they?

“unethical for us to file cases when we believe there is not a good-faith basis to proceed” because the evidence is not strong enough to meet “the legal burden of a reasonable likelihood of a conviction.”

Evidence is clear this case is a big fat nothing burger filed by a little princess snowflake.

Michelle Field has single handedly destroyed her own career, caused significant damage to Shapiro’s career because he was stupid enough to back her, harmed the integrity and trustworthiness of the 12 snowflake reporters that were stupid enough to sign the letter calling for Lewandowski to be fired before all the evidence was available, and hurt the cause of women who are actually abused.

She should be proud of herself. She’s the snowflake wrecking ball.

Oh and by the way, reports are that the pictures of Michelle Field’s cell phone taken that evening did NOT show any bruising. Only later did the faked up bruises in the wrong place picture show up.

Assistant State’s Attorney Adrienne Ellis told reporters there were no photos of bruising on Michelle Fields’ phone.

Ellis also told reporters that Michelle Fields was warned but broke into Donald Trump’s protective bubble anyway.

“She’s going in. This is where she goes into the protective area that she’s not allowed to be in, basically… You can see when she gets next to him she touches him. And you can see Mr. Trump recoil his arm.”

    1. didn’t speak to Lewandowski

    2. didn’t speak to any Secret Service agent

    3. Lewandowski’s lawyers were circulating a draft apology

    4. the detectives had photos of bruising

    5. it is not uncommon for the prosecutors to decline a battery case referred to them by police…”OFTEN”

    6. no Secret Service reacted to the reporter in any way that reflected they thought she was a threat

      1. didn’t speak to Lewandowski

      Didn’t need to its all on video and clearly shows big fat nothing burger.

      1A – Did speak to Michelle and had her public statements all of which when measured against the videos are not credible and indicate she is a liar.

      2. didn’t speak to any Secret Service agent

      Same as answer to 1. above. Not necessary the videos are the BEST evidence of what happened, which is NOTHING HAPPENED.

      3. Lewandowski’s lawyers were circulating a draft apology

      LIAR making up his LIES

      4. the detectives had photos of bruising

      Pictures taken by Michelle that evening show no bruising. Only later did a picture showing faint bruise on wrong part of arm appeared.

      5. it is not uncommon for the prosecutors to decline a battery case referred to them by police…”OFTEN”

      In fact they do it 100% of the time when there is NO EVIDENCE OF ANYTHING HAPPENING !!!!!!!!

      6. no Secret Service reacted to the reporter in any way that reflected they thought she was a threat

      LIAR, she was warned to back off by secret service.

        ” Did speak to Michelle and had her public statements all of which when measured against the videos are not credible and indicate she is a liar.”

        Actually her public statements do agree with her perception. Go get on a bus or train with other buses or trains stopped next to you. While you are stopped have one start moving. Your brain will try to compensate for movement believing you are moving. The same thing happened to Michelle. When Corey pulled on her arm Trump started walking off at the same time. Her brain took it as she was yanked backwards to create the space between her and Trump.

        As far as declining to prosecute I am not surprised at all. It was a fairly minimal contact that would have been difficult to get a conviction on. The real issue is why did they feel the need to attempt to cover up the incident? Without the cover up attempt this issue would have never gained any traction. In fact they wouldn’t have even needed to issue an apology. All they needed to say was as we were leaving the event a reporter was jostled as we were making our way to the exit. Instead they created a beast that will eventually sink his ship before he can reach the White House.

Donald Trump – He gets it or Why he has millions more votes than Cruz

From WSJ

Mr. Cruz has toured the country bragging about his voterless victory in Colorado. For a man who styles himself as a warrior against the establishment (you wouldn’t know it from his list of donors and endorsers), you’d think he would be demanding a vote for Coloradans. Instead, Mr. Cruz is celebrating their disenfranchisement.

Likewise, Mr. Cruz loudly boasts every time party insiders disenfranchise voters in a congressional district by appointing delegates who will vote the opposite of the expressed will of the people who live in that district.

That’s because Mr. Cruz has no democratic path to the nomination. He has been mathematically eliminated by the voters.

While I am self-funding, Mr. Cruz rakes in millions from special interests. Yet despite his financial advantage, Mr. Cruz has won only three primaries outside his home state and trails me by two million votes—a gap that will soon explode even wider. Mr. Cruz loses when people actually get to cast ballots. Voter disenfranchisement is not merely part of the Cruz strategy—it is the Cruz strategy.

The great irony of this campaign is that the “Washington cartel” that Mr. Cruz rails against is the very group he is relying upon in his voter-nullification scheme.

My campaign strategy is to win with the voters. Ted Cruz’s campaign strategy is to win despite them.

What we are seeing now is not a proper use of the rules, but a flagrant abuse of the rules. Delegates are supposed to reflect the decisions of voters, but the system is being rigged by party operatives with “double-agent” delegates who reject the decision of voters.

How have we gotten to the point where politicians defend a rigged delegate-selection process with more passion than they have ever defended America’s borders?

Perhaps it is because politicians care more about securing their private club than about securing their country.

Let us take inspiration from patriotic Colorado citizens who have banded together in protest. Let us make Colorado a rallying cry on behalf of all the forgotten people whose desperate pleas have for decades fallen on the deaf ears and closed eyes of our rulers in Washington, D.C.

The political insiders have had their way for a long time. Let 2016 be remembered as the year the American people finally got theirs.

    This looks like a letter a loser would write. He is complaining about things like he has already lost. If the voters really want this buffoon for president they can make it happen. I don’t believe they want him though and he knows it.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 15, 2016 at 8:26 am


    What a whiny pack of lies.

    Coupled with T-rump’s lack of respect for federalism. And a small legion of straw men.

    Reminds me of Obama

To all the attorneys on this site who still think Fields was assaulted and libeled by Team Trump, I’m sure Ms. Fields would be happy to accept your services pro bono for a civ1l lawsuit.

This isn’t over. Okay, so you don’t like what happened in Colorado. What are you gonna do about it? That should be the only question here, if they’re serious: What to do after Colorado? How to make sure it doesn’t happen again. How to make up for lost ground. But there has been some lost ground. Why did Trump stop winning? “Win, win, win, win, win!” Trump’s staked his image, his reputation, everything he’s built about how he’s gonna win, win, win, win, win, win, win. He hasn’t been winning. Why not?

You gotta figure it out.

You can’t sit there and get mad at people for not voting for the guy. You’ve gotta figure out how you’re gonna win. He was winning. He was on a roll. He had momentum nobody could stop. What happened to it? Well, when the momentum stopped, you can’t blame the opponents for getting excited and trying to capitalize on it. I have said for however long I’ve been doing this program, “Whatever business you go into, there’s a procedure for how you climb the ladder in that business. There are rules that have been set up.”

Either over time, they’ve just evolved, or maybe there’s a book, a manual. Things that are written, unspoken, things you’ve got to do if you want to get to the top of whatever business, whatever organization. And if it involves overthrowing the current regime of that organization, there’s even more things that you’ve gotta do. You’ve gotta learn how the insiders are operating it. Why are we even doing this? I tell you. You’re doing this because you believe that this party needs to be taken over. You’re doing this because you believe that the Republican Party’s no longer responsive to you.

Some good…in fact, obvious…advice for Whiny Donelle T-rump. Not that it’ll do any good.

    practicalconservative in reply to Ragspierre. | April 15, 2016 at 9:46 am

    Sorry, but politically speaking, Cruz is “Dead Man Walking” when it comes to the 2016 Presidential Nomination. Kasich may have a better shot.

    The only question is whether Cruz’s ongoing acerbic antics will irrevocably harm a potential 2020 bid.

“This has to be the very first election that I can recall — I’m 58 and a half years old now — where the front-runner for the Republican Party is whining and complaining the entire time about the rules being against him,” he said on “Levin TV.”

“Donald Trump sounds like a liberal to me,” the conservative commentator added. “You know, ‘Oh, my paycheck is too small,’ or ‘I don’t like my work environment,’ or ‘I should get more money. The rich are too rich, the poor are too poor, woe is me, woe is me.’

“Stand up like a man and run for president. If it’s good enough for Abraham Lincoln [and] it was good enough for Ronald Reagan, then by God, it’s good enough for Donald Trump.”

Trump on Tuesday bashed the Republican National Committee, calling its system for picking a GOP presidential nominee “a disgrace.”

“Reince Priebus should be ashamed of himself,” he said of the RNC chairman. “He should be ashamed of himself because he knows what’s going on.”

Levin on Thursday said that Trump’s complaints contradict his results in multiple GOP voting contests nationwide.

“What’s going on here is totally bogus,” he said. “The fact is, as we’ve discussed before, Donald Trump has received about 37 percent of the vote and he has about 45 percent of the delegates.

“If it’s rigged, quote un-quote, it’s rigged for the front-runner,” added Levin, who has endorsed Ted Cruz. “If there’s a lack of democracy, quote un-quote, there’s a lack of democracy that helps him.”
—Mark Levin

Levin speaks truth to stupid.
