A reporter asked a Las Vegas sheriff Thursday whether former President Donald Trump is to blame for a Democrat allegedly stabbing an investigative reporter to death last Friday.
Democratic Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles was arrested Wednesday in connection with the stabbing death of Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German.
A reporter questioned Thursday whether Telles’ alleged involvement had anything to do with Trump. The reporter began to say it’s likely not the time to talk politics before the sheriff cut her off.
“So why are we talking politics here?”
The reporter then asked whether the sheriff if he thinks “former President Trump’s normalization of violence against journalists” contributed to the murder.
The sheriff said that he doesn’t believe Trump had any influence over the killing.
Authorities served a search warrant Wednesday at Telles’ home. German reportedly had been working on a story about Telles the week he was killed, the Review-Journal reported.
