On the same day Donald Trump's campaign manager was arrested for battery on a reporter, it was revealed that the prosecutor whose office is taking on the case is a Democrat who donated money to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

According to the Boston Herald,
Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg was a member of the Florida State Senate from 2002-2010. He became a state attorney in 2012.

Since last November, reports the Herald, Aronberg has been a part of Clinton's "Florida Leadership Council." He donated $1,000 to her campaign in January.

The Herald asked Aronberg's office for comment regarding where he sits on the political spectrum vs. approaching the case in a nonpartisan manner.

"It's an inappropriate request, and we're not responding to it," spokesman Mike Edmondson told the Herald.

Despite his Clinton leanings, though, Aronberg is considered quite bipartisan in Florida political circles. He's also worked closely with the state's current attorney general, conservative Republican Pam Bondi, during two different stints as an assistant attorney general. Bondi supports current Republican front-runner Donald Trump. In early 2011, Bondi named Aronberg as a special prosecutor for drug trafficking.

Corey Lewandowski turned himself into police Tuesday morning after he was charged with battery stemming from a March 8 incident in which he's alleged to have grabbed the arm of reporter Michelle Fields at a rally. Fields claims Lewandowski was so rough with her that there were bruises on her left arm.

Lewandowski and the Trump campaign denied he touched Fields, who was working for Breitbart News at the time. She has since quit after the website published a story that cast doubt on her claims.

"Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge," Trump said in a statement. "He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated."
