Corey Lewandowski has been charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly grabbing and injuring former Breitbart News Network reporter, Michelle Fields. Washington Post reporter, Ben Terris, was an eyewitness to the altercation and confirmed that he saw Lewandowski grab Fields by the arm.
Lewandowski initially denied everything: “You are totally delusional. I never touched you. As a matter of fact, I never even met you.”
Photographs and video provided circumstantial corroboration of Fields’ account. However, a new video appears to indicate that Lewandowski is the delusional one:
Watch Trump as he makes his way toward the right-hand corner of the video. Fields is to his right and appears to be asking him a question. You’ll then see Lewandowski grab and yank her away from Trump. Fields subsequently tweeted a picture of the bruises on her arm that she claims were the result of Lewandowski grabbing her. Whatever the legal outcome, Lewandowski’s initial denial is rather, shall we say, revisionist in the extreme.
Our own David Robertson posted a piece critical of Fields, yet it appears he did not mention the corroboration by Ben Terris. With confirmation coming from a liberal newspaper’s reporter, Breitbart should have stood by its reporter. Their decision to question her veracity is most regrettable.
