But now reports are surfacing to major mainstream media anchors and top correspondents that Secret Service agents may dispute that account.

“A source close to the Secret Service tells me both Bobby Engel, the lead agent, and the presidential limousine/SUV driver are prepared to testify under oath that neither man was assaulted and that Mr. Trump never lunged for the steering wheel,” tweeted NBC News Chief White House Correspondent Peter Alexander on Tuesday.

ABC News executive producer John Santucci tweeted something similar, writing, “New: Source close to the Secret Service tells [ABC News chief justice correspondent Pierre Thomas] to expect the Secret Service to push back against any allegation of an assault against an agent or President Trump reaching for the steering wheel,” tweeted ABC News executive producer John Santucci.
