- Mohammed A. Malik, the man who informed the FBI of Omar Mateen’s radical Islam tendencies recently wrote an article for the Washington Post.
- He said that the two of them would frequently talk.
- In one of their conversations, Mateen talked about his interest in the Islamic State, which led to Malik reporting him.
- Another conversation led to Mateen’s favorable views of Hillary Clinton.
Mohammed A. Malik recently wrote an article for the Washington Post that stated that he and Omar Mateen, the shooter of the Orlando Massacre, would talk every now and then.
He did not mention the connection, or how it was that they came to talk, but he did talk about their discussions.
At one point Mateen mentioned that he was looking into radical Islam, and had been watching videos of it on the internet. This is what caused Malik to inform the FBI. The FBI started a probe on Mateen which was quickly dropped and never brought up again.
In a conversation that they had over dinner in January, Malik said that the conversation turned political.
“We talked about the presidential election and debated our views of the candidates that were running – he liked Hillary Clinton and I liked Bernie Sanders,” Malik recalled.
So there it is. The presidential candidate that radical Islamic terrorists seem to side with is Hillary Rodham Clinton.
It wasn’t said if Mateen had planned to vote for her or if he had already, but it was clear that she was his favorite.
Malik said that they continued to talk. Their final chat was in the middle of May, he didn’t say what the rest of their conversations were about. He also did not clarify why their conversations had ended.
Either way, I’m sure it makes Hillary feel good to know that she has such loyal supporters.
