Mass Shooter’s Father Was FBI Informant

By Bizpac Review. Mateen killed 49 people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla., in 2016, and his wife in now on trial, accused of aiding the gunman in the attack — the case has garnered little interest from the left because details fail to support the established narrative that the LGBT community was targeted.

The motion was filed by lawyers representing Mateen’s widow, Noor Salman, and it states that they were contacted on Saturday by prosecutors, who told them Mateen’s father, Seddique Mateen, was an FBI source from 2005 to June 2016, CNN reported.

The elder Mateen is being investigated for money transfers between March 16, 2016, and June 5, 2016, to Turkey and Afghanistan, according to the network. Evidence was discovered in his home the day of the Pulse attack . . .

The defense also said Seddique’s FBI connection was a factor in a 2013 investigation into Omar Mateen for allegedly threatening coworkers.

The motion stated: “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.” (Read more from “Mass Shooter’s Father Was FBI Informant” HERE)


Judge Denies Motion to Drop Case Against Widow of Pulse Gunman

By CNN. A judge has denied a motion for dismissal by lawyers for the widow of the Pulse gunman after they said new details from prosecutors reveal the shooter’s father was an FBI informant who is currently under a criminal investigation.

The judge said the fact that Omar Mateen’s father worked as an FBI informant was not relevant to the case against Noor Salman.

According to a motion filed by the defense, Assistant US Attorney Sara Sweeney sent an email to the defense on Saturday — in the middle of Salman’s trial — that stated Seddique Mateen was a confidential FBI source at various points in time between January 2005 through June 2016.

The email also stated that Seddique Mateen is being investigated for money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan after documents were found in his home on June 12, 2016, the day of the Pulse attack. The dates of the money transfers were between March 16, 2016, and June 5, 2016, according to the email. (Read more from “Judge Denies Motion to Drop Case Against Widow of Pulse Gunman” HERE)
