    Wrong.

    Yes, how is that not him making contact?

    She is trying to get the mic away from him, that's not really contact. It doesn't matter how long he touched her. I'm not familiar with DC's laws (where I'm assuming this happened) but in many places simple assault is merely unwanted touching, which this clearly is. I'm sure DC defines simple assault as such as well.

    I think it is a huge stretch to call it assault. She should have just said his pas was being revoked for being disruptive, which he assuredly was.

    How is that not really contact when she clearly touches him first? Her reasoning for doing so doesn't really matter.

    Um clearly if she thought it was assault...it was assault.

    I don't know if she called it assault elsewhere but on Twitter she didn't call it assault, she simply said it was unacceptable for him to place his hands on her, which he did and she is right it is unacceptable.

    I mean the only way this is assault if it's like a police officer, you pat them on the shoulder and that's assaulting an officer. To any other person it's not assault.
    No, I am not Drauz in game.

    Either way, I think the "placed hands on" thing is reaching. He was disruptive. Take his pass for that.

    Not that I think this is assault but it does raise a question.

    I'm assuming this lady is a member of the presidents team, if that is the case does she deserve the same legal protection as say Sarah Huckabee or any other member of the presidents team?

    Not sure why you'd create a false statement by me and put it in your signature. Seems kinda creepy...

    Not getting into the politics of this, but it would make a great Torts exam question. Assault, (or battery when physical contact occurs) can extend to objects like if someone smacked a coffee cup out of your hand or pulled a chair out from under you. She probably committed battery first by attempting to grab the mike and his contact appeared to be purely in self-defense, just enough to stop the initial battery. The closer question I suppose is whether his conduct reached the level where physical force was justified, but as he was not being physically disruptive (prior to the mic being grabbed), I would wager not.

    Not really her fault and she was in a bad position. She's an intern, panicked, and just started grabbing. If she yelled "Sir PLEASE HAND ME THE MICROPHONE" it would have been much more effective.
