    The FBI has found no evidence so far that Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded more than 53 at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, chose the popular establishment because of its gay clientele, said U.S law enforcement officials.

    “While there can be no denying the significant impact on the gay community, the investigation hasn’t revealed that he targeted pulse because it was a gay club,” a U.S. law enforcement official said.

    This is the same FBI that decided not to prosecute Hillary. Kind of throws a wet towel on their credibility on other matters.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Comey vetted any statements that were going to be released to the public regarding the Orlando shooting. So his stamp is all over this report.

    So what? He is surely not the only one involved. Also, these findings are in contrast to public pressure.

    When you say Comey you are talking about an individual. When you say FBI you are talking about the entire organization. I do not think you can legitimately make the case that the entire FBI made the decision not to prosecute Clinton. I suppose you are unaware but the entire team investigating Clinton did not sit on the team that made the decision not to prosecute. Comey was part of it but the rest were Obama admin staff and AG staff.

    So no, not asked and answered..

    I'll trust none of them. That's what happens when the leadership is corrupt or sells out.

    The FBI, part of the Obama administration, would have loved to have found evidence the attack was "homophobia". Still, Democrats will continue to insist the attack was motivated by homophobia and the Republicans will continue to concede the argument.

    The FBI has no interest in establishing that Omar Mateen is homosexual. If Mateen tried to clean up, so he wouldn't leave sodomite footprints behind, that could explain why the FBI didn't find anything on his phone and computer. It's like how a guy into porn who is going to commit suicide might wipe away his porn collection so his survivors won't know about his addiction.

    Again I don't know what that means. He did not target homosexuals. That just happened to be the place he was familiar with. His goal was just killing mass amounts of people. He had considered doing it at Disney. In fact while that place is known for homosexuals the majority of the people who were that that particular night was not homosexual, they were hispanic. They were there after some celebration.

    I don't trust anything the FBI says now. They have become complicit in letting Mrs Clinton get off with a little slap on the wrist for erasing 33,000 classified documents on a server in an unauthorized location in a private home.

    Had I done that on my tour of duty I would still be in prison.

    The FBI - just another Obama-Clinton Lackey organization.

    Not all the FBI agrees with what has happened. Comey is not "the FBI" Comey is comey who is just one person who works at the FBI.
