Counter Jihad is reporting that members of the media and investigators who attempt to call the father or other family members of Omar Mateen are now being directed to a lawyer for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Not only that, another lawyer is being allowed to sit in with the FBI as it conducts interviews with suspects at the Fort Pierce mosque that Mateen attended. It is noted that the FBI has suspended formal ties to CAIR over its association with terrorist groups.
Paul Sperry for Counter Jihad writes:
CAIR lawyered up a suspect who was interviewed by two FBI agents at the mosque for about 30 minutes on Friday. The CAIR lawyer, Omar Saleh, also happens to be a longstanding member of that same mosque — the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce — as well as a friend of the Mateen family. Mateen’s sisters, who work at the mosque and own property on the same street, follow local CAIR coordinators on social media.
