Just a coincidence, no doubt!

From Click Orlando:
ORLANDO, Fla. - Attorneys for Noor Salman called for a mistrial after they say new details from prosecutors reveal that Pulse gunman Omar Mateen's father was an FBI source and is currently under a criminal investigation.

According to a motion filed by the defense, prosecutors sent an email on Saturday that stated Seddique Mateen was a confidential FBI source from 2005 through June 2016.

The email also stated that Seddique Mateen is being investigated for money transfers to Turkey and Pakistan after documents were found in his home on the day of the Pulse attack.
Salman's attorneys claim the late disclosure of the information prevented them from exploring whether or not Seddique Mateen knew of his son's plans to attack the nightclub on June 12, 2016.

Judge Paul Byron ruled Monday afternoon that the mistrial would not be granted because Salman's attorneys were not harmed by the government's failure to disclose that Seddique Mateen was a confidential informant.

The government email to Salman's attorneys also states that in 2012, "An anonymous tip indicated that Seddique Mateen was seeking to raise $50,000-$100,000 via a donation drive to contribute toward an attack against the government of Pakistan."
Nothing to see here, folks!





The trial also showed the claim, which was repeated by the Southern Poverty Law Center to label the attack as "right-wing," that Mateen was motivated to attack a gay night club due to some weird psycho-sexual troubles, was a load of garbage.





His motive was instead said to be anger over US attacks on Muslims.
