Trump Campaign Denies That Video Shows Lewandowski Grabbing Protester

It is the second time in a little more than a week that the campaign has had to address questions about campaign manager Corey Lewandowski

Donald Trump's campaign is denying that its manager grabbed a young protester's collar at an Arizona rally on Saturday, less than two weeks after the aide was accused of assaulting a Breitbart reporter, NBC News reported.

Video taken at a Tuscan rally appears to show an altercation between the GOP front-runner’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowsk and a demonstrator. A hand then grabs the young man by the collar, pulling him back. [[372833051, C]]

Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said Lewandowski wasn't the one responsible, instead placing the blame on a man standing to the manager's left.

"The video clearly shows the protester reacting to the man who pulled him, not to Mr. Lewandowski," Hicks said. [[338107532, C]]
