Assault

Secret Service is specifically denying that an "assault" or "attack" on their agents took place.

Nobody in yesterday's hearing used those words in regards to the incident in question. Hutchinson was very careful in her description. She didn't say 'attack' or 'assault'. Cheney twice used the word "altercation", and she never pushed beyond that characterization. And an altercation can be as trivial as what happened to Rudy. It's entirely possible (and likely) that Trump lunged at the agent in the driver's seat but that the actual contact was so slight that nobody there considered it to be an assault. But the fact that it happened at all made for a good story to tell the pretty girl down the hall.

People in the media
are describing it as an assault and an attack. And that's what SS is pushing back against.
