Adding to the growing list of reporters who’ve been beaten or verbally accosted during Donald Trump campaign events, the GOP frontrunner’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski reportedly grabbed a female Breitbart reporter as she attempted to ask a question Tuesday night. Secret Service agents were reportedly clearing a path after the reality-TV star candidate’s press conference, when reporter Michelle Fields was nearly yanked to the ground by Lewandowski, a witness told Politico. Breitbart News CEO and President Larry Solov wrote in a statement that Fields is owed an apology from the Trump team: “It’s obviously unacceptable that someone crossed a line and make 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.”
