Glenn Greenwald on Tucker Tonight program reveals even more, Omar Mateen, the jihadi who murdered 49 people chose the Pulse nightclub randomly, but it was in fact an attack of jihad for revenge of US foreign policy. The FBI hid the fact that his father was an informant, as well as strong arming his low IQ daughter-in-law into signing a confession to things she didn’t know of and do:
BOMBSHELL: Wife’s trial reveals FBI had long prior connection with father of Pulse nightclub shooter
The FBI had a decade-long confidential informant relationship with the father of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, prosecutors admitted Saturday, 12 days into the trial of his wife.
The undercover relationship with the father, Seddique Mateen, continued even though the bureau was tipped off in 2012 that its informant was himself raising money to plan a terrorist attack on the government of Pakistan.
The father’s status also played a role in the FBI’s decision not to seek prosecution of Omar in 2013 after they investigated him for violent threats, attorneys for the shooter’s wife said. If Omar had gone to prison in that case, the infamous Pulse shooting might have been avoided.
Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 68 others at a gay nightclub in Orlando in June 2016.
“Mateen’s father played a significant role in the FBI’s decision not to seek an indictment from the Justice Department for false statements to the FBI or obstruction of justice against Omar Mateen during its 2013 investigation into his alleged threats,” lawyers for his wife, Noor Salman, said in a motion.
