CNN political analyst April Ryan is reportedly demanding that the White House pay for a bodyguard she recently hired to protect her against threats.

Ryan, who is a White House correspondent, told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published on Tuesday that she has had many threats made against her. She also claimed people follow her around whenever she is in public and wait for her when she’s leaving the White House.

“I’ve had some people wait for me outside the White House…. There is a concern now. I mean, I’ve had death threats, I’ve had craziness, so I have a real concern. An honest, real concern…. Do I have a bodyguard? Yes, I do.” Ryan said. “All I’m going to say for my safety is: I have a team.”

Ryan also said that she expects the White House to pay for her security team.

“Am I paying for it? Yes, I am. And, I think [Sanders] should have to pay for it, especially if she’s stirring it up with her boss,” Ryan asserted.
