NYE COUNTY (KTNV) — The Nye County Sheriff is speaking out after a letter from the county's Republican Central Commitee's website went viral.
"People have the right of free speech among many other rights. These rights are respected. However, when actions rise to acts of violence, that violence will not be tolerated. Illegal activity will not be tolerated," says Sheriff Sharon Wehrly.
Nevada's senators are calling on the FBI to investigate the letter after they sent a letter of their own to the FBI director.
The senators say the committee claimed President Trump will be inaugurated on Jan 20.
It also claimed -- without evidence -- there is a plot involving Vice President Mike Pence to over-throw President Trump.
The Nye County sheriff says her department had no part in the Republican Central Committee's letter.
