A teen was hit with pepper spray while protesting outside a Donald Trump campaign rally in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Footage of the incident shows the teen, identified by WFTV-TV as Alex Drake, arguing with an unidentified man, telling him, “You touched my breasts,” as a woman stands behind her holding a Black Lives Matter sign.

The man puts his hands up and denies groping Drake, but she repeats, “You touched my chest” and approaches him, prompting other people to grab her by the shoulders.

Drake is then seen telling someone else, “Stop f*cking touching me” before swinging toward the man. A hand is then seen reaching toward her and spraying her in the face, causing her to walk away amid the cheers of Trump supporters.

The New York Daily News and other outlets initially described Drake as being 15 years old. But WISC-TV later reported that, according to local police, she is actually 19 years old.

Police Chief David J. Moore said the incident happened before Trump took the stage at the rally, and that there is “likely good photographic evidence” showing both who sprayed Drake and who groped her.

Watch footage of the encounter, as posted online, below.

During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.

"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.

Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report

Published

According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.

The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
