Michelle Fields, who resigned her job at Breitbart News and then charged Donald Trump's campaign manager with battery, is now working at The Huffington Post, where she has been hired to cover the 2016 election and focus on Trump.

"After the tumultuous events of the last few months, I am ready to get back to writing and reporting on what is without question the most bizarrely fascinating presidential race of my lifetime (and, perhaps, any lifetime)," Fields said in a statement on Sunday night, reports CNN Money.

She starts her new job on Monday, and said in the statement that she is "beyond excited to join one of the biggest names in political journalism." Fields' new boss, Huffington Post Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim, called her "one of the most widely read chroniclers of the conservative movement."

Fields left Breitbart in March after accusing Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of grabbing her arm and said he almost pulled her to the ground while she was trying to interview Trump.

She and several Breitbart editors quit their jobs after the website published a lengthy piece questioning her version of the incident. Police in Florida charged Lewandowski with battery, but the Palm Beach County state attorney dropped the case. 

Fields has also worked for The Daily Caller and PJ Media in the past, but will now be working for Arianna Huffington, one of the nation's most outspoken liberal voices.

Grim said the website plans to send Fields to Trump's events, but told CNN she will likely be denied press credentials, as "none of us [at HuffPost] get credentialed."

HuffPost has been critical of Trump's campaign since its beginning, when Huffington ordered coverage of it to be reported in the website's entertainment section.

Even after she changed the policy in December, the website continues to add an editor's note to the end of stories about Trump, calling him a "serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, and birther."
