Trump staff accused of manhandling reporter
So apparently, this happened on March 8th. I don't recall seeing anything, but I've been avoiding the political stuff the last couple of weeks.

Apparently the reporter was about to ask Trump a question when someone yanked her down, grabbing her arm from behind and pulling. Bruises were documented. Video and still photos do not show the actual moment of injury, but do show very close before and after. She is blaming Trump's campaign manager. Criminal charges were filed.

There is an additional layer in that the conservative paper that the reporter works for is apparently siding with Trump rather than their own employee.

Anyone else hear about this?

Reporter Michelle Fields and at least three other staffers have resigned in opposition to their company's coverage of Trump and to its handling of an alleged assault on Fields by a top Trump aide.

Fields, who has claimed that she was yanked and bruised by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, and Ben Shapiro, one of the site's top editors, told BuzzFeed late Sunday night that they would be leaving the company.

Then on Monday, Breitbart editor Jarrett Stepman and national security correspondent Jordan Schachtel announced they were also resigning in protest.

OK, the mods can delete this one, if they want. I did glance through the other one, but I didn't see this incident mentioned.

RE: Trump staff accused of manhandling reporter
I just watched the video. You can see a man runs into her, kind of push her out of the way, like he doesn't see her. He doesn't appear to notice her. Maybe she took offense to getting bumped and embellished the story. I read on another site that this same woman once accused Allen West of grabbing her breast but later retracted it. Sounds like a nut job.

You are a charming little monkey, aren't you?

Marks like that have had people jailed for child abuse, domestic violence and other assault charges.

A claim was made, evidence has been shown. It should be investigated.

This lady, Michelle Fields, has a history of saying men touch her inappropriately. She was interviewing Robert Kennedy Jr. and he touched her shoulders a few times while talking, and she posted to twitter that Kennedy got "handsy" with her. Then she told some coworkers that Col. Allen West grabbed her breast, but backtracked after confronted by the media. Now she says she was "assaulted" by Trump's campaign manager, but the video shows he just walked right by her, maybe bumping her accidentally. She seems a bit nutty.

There is no real reason to touch someone when you're talking to them. Many people would consider that "getting handsy". And if you want to talk history, the Kennedy's have a long and sordid history of "getting handsy".

Can't comment about the West story.

This allegation has evidence: physical, eyewitness and photo/video. It involves a candidate for POTUS. It should be investigated and prosecuted, if merited. If the accusations are determined to be false, the same applies.

I should point out, I am not advocating for or against. I am awaiting further information. I posted the story because, if true, the allegations are disturbing.
