Revealed: Orlando shooter delivered chilling phone call to local news station during massacre

Published

on

As he was slaughtering people at the Pulse nightclub this weekend, shooter Omar Mateen made a chilling phone call to local station News 13 in Orlando, the station revealed on Wednesday.

As the station was covering Mateen’s murderous rampage, News 13 producer Matthew Gentili received a phone call from Mateen, who immediately told the producer that he was murdering people in the name of the Islamic State.

“I did it for ISIS,” Mateen told him. “I did it for the Islamic State.”

Gentili proceeded to ask Mateen to reveal his location, to which Mateen responded that it was “none of his business.” He then asked Mateen if he wanted to say anything else, and Mateen hung up the phone shortly afterward.

The call occurred at 2:45 a.m., roughly 45 minutes after the shooting began, which means that Mateen had already killed a number of people by the time he called Gentili.

“I’m definitely changed,” Gentili said. “When you get a phone call like that, I’m never going to be able to answer the phone again without thinking this is the most serious call I’ll ever get in my life.”

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw in Syria in less than 24 hours put American troops at risk as they were being fired on by Turkey. However, according to the Wall Street Journal , the military was also forced to bomb our own military base.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been critical of Trump's decisions in the past months, pointed out the factoid in a tweet Wednesday evening, asking, "Is this the America you grew up believing in?"

"On Wednesday, the U.S. military said two F-15E jet fighters carried out an airstrike to destroy an ammunition-storage facility, latrines, tents and other parts of the Syria headquarters of the American campaign to destroy Islamic State after pulling its forces from the base," reported The Journal.

Trump accused of working to ‘obstruct his own impeachment’ by congressional attorneys: report

Published

On Wednesday, Politico reported that lawyers working for the House of Representatives issued a blistering court filing accusing President Donald Trump, among other things, of trying to use the power of his office to "obstruct his own impeachment."

The filing, part of the House Judiciary Committee's attempt to seek testimony from ex-White House Counsel Don McGahn, cites the White House's repeated efforts to block current and former Trump administration officials from testifying — and even some allies of Trump who have never held any position in his government.
