No wonder he got primo seating at that Hillary rally…
Testimony and court documents from the trial of Noor Salman – the widow of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, reveals that Omar’s father – who sat right behind Hillary Clinton at an August, 2016 campaign rally, was an FBI informant for over a decade.
Jurors in Salman’s trial heard from Miami-based FBI Special Agent Juvenal Martin – Seddique Mateen’s contact within the agency, while documents show the senior Mateen was trying to raise $50,000 – $100,000 through donations in order to conduct a terrorist attack against the government of Pakistan – a discovery made by the FBI following the June 12, 2016 massacre at the Pulse gay nightclub by 29-year-old Omar Mateen, killing 49 people before dying in a shoot out with police.
Disturbingly, Omar Mateen was such a threat that his co-workers reported him to the FBI – who had his supervisor wear a wire to try and capture Omar bragging about connections to terrorism.
Martin also testified about investigating Omar Mateen, after co-workers at the security firm G4S reported in 2013 that Mateen had made comments about being connected to Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood.

The elder Mateen also made several money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan between March 16, 2016 and June 5, 2016 – a week before the Pulse attack.
A motion filed by Salman’s defense team on Sunday argued that the case against her should be dismissed because prosecutors didn’t share the fact that the senior Mateen was an FBI asset.
“It is apparent from the Government’s belated disclosure that Ms. Salman has been defending a case without a complete set of facts and evidence that the Government was required to disclose,” attorney Fritz Scheller argued in the court filing.
U.S. District Judge Paul Byron said he would deal with the motion later. “I’m not going to address it right now,” he said. “It’s gonna take too much time.”
Did the FBI lie?
Journalist Jack Posobiec makes some interesting observations about the FBI response to the Pulse shooting, noting that in hindsight James Comey may have been lying through his teeth about what they knew.
