Judge Nap Blasts DOJ for 'Trying to Rewrite History' With Orlando Transcripts
By scrubbing references to Islam from the transcripts of the Orlando terrorist's 911 calls and then reversing course and releasing the unedited transcripts, the Justice Department has seriously compromised its credibility, according to Judge Andrew Napolitano.
On "Varney & Co." this morning, Judge Napolitano explained that by removing gunman Omar Mateen's pledge of allegiance to ISIS, the DOJ was "trying to rewrite history."
"They were trying to sanitize this, so as to give us, the American people, a different impression from what actually happened," Judge Napolitano said.
He added that not only did they redact words like "ISIS" and "Allah" from the transcripts, they summarized events improperly.
"Yesterday, they told us in the summary that no shots were fired between the initial encounter between the killer and two police that were there and the breach [three] hours and 12 minutes later," Judge Napolitano said. "From that, we reported that the killings occurred at the time of the breach."
He pointed out that contradicts previous reports of the timeline of the shootings, not to mention multiple witness accounts.
Judge Napolitano concluded that the document is an "tragic effort" by the government to sanitize history, which he said was certainly approved by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, if not President Obama himself.
