An audio recording published by Politico on Thursday appears to support the account of a Breitbart News reporter who alleges she was strong-armed by Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, after a press conference earlier this week.

Lewandowski, Trump and Trump’s campaign have all denied the account of the interaction given by Michelle Fields, the Breitbart News reporter involved.

In the audio, you can hear Fields as well as Ben Terris, a Washington Post reporter who witnessed and wrote about the incident.

Fields tells Terris, “He literally went like this and was grabbing me down. I don’t even want to do what he just did to me. Oh my God, that really spooked me that someone would do that.”

Terris wonders what threat she posed.

“Nothing,” she replied. “I was asking about affirmative action.”
