Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields has received mountains of attention this week over her claim that she was assaulted by Donald Trump‘s campaign manager.
But new video is casting serious doubt, not on who grabbed her, but on the severity of the incident.

Video published to YouTube on Saturday indeed shows a man that resembles Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski grabbing her arm and moving her out of the way as she was about to chase after Trump, but the claim that she was almost thrust to the ground is beyond a stretch if this is the incident in question.
Fields has been in the national spotlight and appeared all over political television programs to talk about her “assault.”
She even filed a police report about the encounter.
Reactions have varied from “get over it,” or “she’s lying,” to demands that Trump fire his campaign manager and apologize.
So far, there has been no response from Fields or her supporters over the new footage.
Social media Trump supporters, including Ann Coulter, fired away on Fields over this new video.

Michelle Fields claimed Corey “attempted to pull her to the ground.” It is clear from the video that no such thing happened. Serial liar.
