Documents reveal second person of interest in Las Vegas gun massacre

Published

on

A person of interest was revealed in a cache of investigation records unsealed in the Oct. 1 massacre that left 58 people dead in Las Vegas.

Nearly 300 pages of search warrant records were unsealed Tuesday by a judge, and one document publicly identified an additional person sought by police for questioning, reported the Las Vegas Review Journal.

“Until the investigation can rule otherwise, Marilou Danley and Douglas Haig have become persons of interest who may have conspired with Stephen Paddock to commit Murder with a Deadly Weapon,” police said in October, according to the document.

Danley was Paddock’s girlfriend, and she has been questioned in the case — but police do not expect her to be charged.

Haig’s name had not been previously released, and the newspaper was unable to reach him for comment.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he could not comment on a federal case, but he did not object to the newspaper revealing Haig’s name.

“If you’ve got it, publish it,” he said.

Lombardo said Jan. 20 that the FBI had an open investigation into an unnamed person of interest, although it’s not clear whether that was Haig, and the sheriff said repeatedly that Paddock was the only shooter.

“I know and believe there was only one suspect who killed 58 people and injured hundreds more,” Lombardo said. “All the evidence recovered in this case supports that theory. There was one shooter in the 1 October massacre. There was only one person responsible, and that was Stephen Paddock.”

Paddock’s brother, Eric, said he did not know Haig.

“I never heard of the guy,” Paddock said.

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.

Here’s how the law governing whistleblowers applies to the Trump Ukraine complaint

Published

on

This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.

Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.

Retiring Republican lawmaker blames Trump’s ‘petty, childish bullsh*t’ for massive GOP exodus

Published

on

In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.

As the Washington Post reports, "Since Trump’s inauguration, a Washington Post analysis shows that nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving because of election losses, retirements including former House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis)."
