POLL: Is Loretta Lynch Wrong To Edit Out ‘Islamic Terrorism’ from Orlando Shooting Transcripts?

Share this story:

In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that on Monday, the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to the police during his rampage.

“What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda,” Lynch said. “We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State].”

She justified this omission by saying she wants to “avoid revictimizing those who went through this horror.”
