A new video surfaced Friday that purports to show Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, grabbing the arm of a Breitbart News reporter earlier this week after a press conference.

A video first tweeted by C-SPAN staffer Jeremy Art and later picked up by The Daily Beast appears to show Lewandowski with his hand on Michelle Fields, the Brietbart reporter involved. Lewandowski appears to let go of Fields’ arm before reaching out again a few seconds later.

Here’s the moment where Lewandowski appears to be grabbing Field’s arm:

Then Trump, Fields, Lewandowski, and a security guard, whom Breitbart suggested actually may have been the person that grabbed Fields, quickly disappear behind a scrum of television cameras.

Fields tweeted a photo of the bruises on her arm Thursday night.

The Trump campaign, Lewandowski and the candidate himself have separately denied the story. Lewandowski has also called Fields “delusional” while Trump said Fields probably “made the story up.”
