New video from the Donald Trump press conference Tuesday appears to show Donald Trump’s campaign manager grabbing the reporter he swore he didn’t grab.

Michelle Fields, a reporter for the archconservative news outlet Breitbart, said she was manhandled by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski after she tried to ask the candidate a question about affirmative action.

Yesterday, both Lewandowsi and Trump accused Fields of lying about the incident.

But in the video, recorded by CSPAN, you can see Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski reach across the man walking next to him to the spot where Fields was attempting to ask Trump a question. Next to her, eyewitness Ben Terris, who corroborated her account and identified Lewandowski as her assailant, is clearly visible. Terris can also be seen saying something to Lewandowski immediately after the confrontation.

The video also appears to invalidate a theory advanced by Fields’ own employer, Breitbart, which today published a story by Joel B. Pollack concluding there was no way Lewandowski could have done it.

Fields has since filed criminal charges against Lewandowski with the Jupiter Police Department in Florida, where the incident occurred.
