Politico talked to a reporter who witnessed the violent exchange:
“Fields was attempting to ask Trump a question as he exited the press conference,” they reported. “Secret Service was starting to clear a path, when Fields was forcibly grabbed on her arm by Lewandowski, moving her out of the way and nearly bringing her down to the ground.”
The witness added that Fields was clearly “roughed up.”
Breitbart released the following statement about the altercation:
t’s obviously unacceptable that someone crossed a line and made physical contact with our reporter. What Michelle has told us directly is that someone “grabbed her arm” and while she did not see who it was, Ben Terris of the Washington Post told her that it was Corey Lewandowski. If that’s the case, Corey owes Michelle an immediate apology.
