Concord, New Hampshire (CNN) - In a testy exchange caught on video, Newt Gingrich dodged – then verbally dressed down – a reporter on Tuesday after being repeatedly pressed about some potentially controversial business practices.

"Can you just answer the question as to why the charity you founded gave $200,000 to your for profit company?" pressed investigative producer Angela M. Hill of ABC News.

"No," Gingrich responded at one point, turning away from the producer. The Republican presidential candidate then said, "Give me one second," and privately huddled with press secretary R.C. Hammond.
