A video showing a bodyguard for Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) manhandling conservative author Jason Mattera was published Thursday.

In the video, Mattera attempts to ask Reid about how he accumulated his fortune.

“How does someone on a government salary most of their career accumulate your type of wealth?” Mattera asked.
Reid did not respond to the question and one of the men guarding him then physically constrained Mattera against a wall, according to the Daily Surge.

Suddenly, one of the Majority Leader’s bodyguards intervened. “Are you press?” he asked, before shoving Mattera and then pinning him against a wall.

“What are you doing holding me up like that?” Mattera asked the bodyguard.

When Mattera identified himself as press, the man says “I don’t care if you’re press or not.” The man refused to identify himself to Mattera and walked out of the view of the camera.
