Fla AG Bondi says she knows ‘a lot more’ on shooting but can’t say: Sheriff’s office lied to me and governor

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was tight-lipped when asked whether a stand down order was given to Broward County deputies as a killer fired on students and teachers inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” early Monday, Bondi said Gov. Rick Scott has ordered a “full investigation” into Sheriff Scott Israel’s handling of last week’s shooting, saying “some people” are not being honest.

Sheriff Israel told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, “I can’t tell you anything about that,” when asked if a stand down order had ben given to his deputies.

“I haven’t heard that,” the sheriff added, incredulously.

“Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy asked Bondi the same question about a stand down order.

“I can’t talk about that,” Bondi replied.

But the state’s top legal officer intimated there’s more to this story than the public knows when Bondi said she believes an investigation is warranted.

“I know a lot more than you all do now so all I’m going to say is, yes, I believe there needs to be a full investigation,” she said. “I don’t think some people were honest and we’re going to investigate this situation in Florida and the right thing will be done.”

Bondi charged that some members of the Broward sheriff’s office “weren’t honest with me, nor were they honest with the governor.”

When asked to explain why they would not be honest, she suggested that some of the officers may have been more focused on covering their behinds.

“Well, if they were there and didn’t want people to know they were there, that could have been it,” Bondi said. “But I’m not going to discuss farther.”
