When Republican representative Scott Taylor started to talk about new reports linking terrorism to refugees in an interview on CNN, the news feed suddenly cut out.
The interview took place on Monday with CNN host Dana Bash.
Taylor was talking about Trump’s revised travel ban and was asked if he thought the ban was “important” to implement in the U.S. When he began his response, the video and audio feed unexpectedly cut out in the middle of his sentence.
“Just today, the FBI comes out and says that 30 percent … 30 percent of their domestic terrorism cases that they’re investigating are from folks who are refugees,” Taylor said. “It’s important not to label all refugees bad people, that’s not why I’m here, but…”
Bash responded, “I was just going to say, Congressman, it’s time to go. But I think the TV gremlins did that for us.”
Taylor, who served as a Navy SEAL sniper in the Iraq War, was referring to the new report released by the Department of Homeland Security on Monday which said that 300 of the FBI’s 1,000 domestic terrorism cases involve those admitted to the U.S. as refugees.
