The latest move by the Obama administration has FBI agents worried.
On Monday the administration released a redacted transcript of the Orlando gunman’s 911 call during which he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.
Within hours of complaints by lawmakers and the public about the redacted version of the transcript, the FBI and Justice Department released the full version, together with this statement.
“The purpose of releasing the partial transcript of the shooter’s interaction with 911 operators was to provide transparency, while remaining sensitive to the interests of the surviving victims, their families, and the integrity of the ongoing investigation,” the statement said.
“We also did not want to provide the killer or terrorist organizations with a publicity platform for hateful propaganda. Unfortunately, the unreleased portions of the transcript that named the terrorist organizations and leaders have caused an unnecessary distraction from the hard work that the FBI and our law enforcement partners have been doing to investigate this heinous crime. As much of this information had been previously reported, we have re-issued the complete transcript to include these references in order to provide the highest level of transparency possible under the circumstances.”
An FBI source told Fox News’ Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge that in 20-plus years, they had never seen something like this before.
Herridge said, “It really raises the question about the integrity of the evidence. And this person [source] said to me that they’ve always known FBI Director James Comey to be someone who is really solid on the importance of the integrity of the evidence.”
The fact that these are the same organizations that are investigating Hillary’s email scandal should escape no one.
It’s all politics with Obama, and there’s always an ulterior motive.
Here’s the full transcript:
2:35 a.m.: Shooter contacted a 911 operator from inside Pulse. The call lasted approximately 50 seconds, the details of which are set out below:
(OD) Orlando Police Dispatcher
(OM) Omar Mateen
OD: Emergency 911, this is being recorded.
