Are police withholding information suggesting the Vegas killer had POLITICAL motives?

As Americans remain shocked and stunned over the mass murder committed by at least one man — Stephen Paddock — in Las Vegas last weekend, so far authorities investigating the horrific shootings have yet to establish a motive.

Or, at least, they’ve yet to publicly discuss a motive.

It could be that they already have a good idea about why Paddock turned his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino into a sniper’s nest after meticulously planning the attack, perhaps for months: They may already believe there was a political motivation behind the killing, one that they’re not yet willing to announce or discuss, most likely because of the hellacious fallout around the country.

At least, that’s what retired Lt. Col Tony Shaffer, a Fox News contributor and CIA-trained former U.S. intelligence officer, has said. In an appearance on the network Wednesday, Shaffer said his sources have told him that law enforcement is “holding back” information suggesting a political motivation behind the killings, which they learned about after watching recorded video footage of his attack.

“My sources tell me they reviewed the information on those videos and there are things that do lay out some understanding of his motivation,” he said, adding that officials haven’t released the new information because of “leads they want to follow.”

When host Martha McCallum pressed him further, he said, “There is a political angle people are concerned about.”

“There is one legal law enforcement issue, according to my source,” said Shaffer, who noted further that sources told him there are concerns behind the scenes about why certain information, like images of the weapons used to attack a country music festival at the Route 91 venue below the hotel have been leaked, but not the video the suspect allegedly recorded during his assault.

There are other clues that indeed, Shaffer’s sources are being truthful with him.

For instance, as The National Sentinel reported, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo hinted at a press conference earlier this week that it’s possible Paddock, 64, may have been “radicalized” at some point, though he did not elaborate.

In making his statement, Lombardo seemed to suggest that Paddock was ‘radicalized,’ just based on the second part of his statement: “Did this person get radicalized unbeknownst to us? And we want to identify that source.”
