Ace of Spades HQ: I figure I owe an explanation, in case anyone cares.
I'll just note that John Nolte has now laid out the facts and witness reports in the Fields incident.

I think he felt he had to do this, because Trump had embarrassed him into doing it. To preserve his own self-respect, he had to do this.
