The Breitbart News reporter who was allegedly assaulted by Donald Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski at a campaign news conference Tuesday night is speaking out about the incident for the first time in a new op-ed posted to the news outlet's website overnight.
Michelle Fields, who covers politics for Breitbart, says she was "jolted backwards" after she posed a question to the Republican front-runner.
"Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken," Fields writes in the post.
Fields did not see who pulled her but said The Washington Post’s Ben Terris allegedly identified the aggressor as Lewandowski.
