Following an alleged assault by Donald Trump's campaign manager, Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields and editor-at-large Ben Shapiro have resigned.
Fields released a statement to BuzzFeed saying, "I do not believe Breitbart News has adequately stood by me during the events of the past week and because of that I believe it is now best for us to part ways.”
Last week, Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager, was accused of violently pulling Fields away from Trump as she tried to ask him a question. Video from C-SPAN appears to show him reaching for her.
