‘I smell a rat’: Congressman claims he has credible evidence that ISIS was behind Las Vegas shooting

Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday and claimed that he has been “made aware” of “credible information regarding potential terrorist infiltration through the southern border” on the Las Vegas massacre.

Scott Perry of Pennsylvania told Fox News host Tucker Carlson: ‘I smell a rat like a lot of Americans do.’

‘Recently, I have been made aware of what I believe to be credible evidence, credible information regarding potential terrorist infiltration through the southern border regarding this incident,’ Perry told Carlson.

‘Terrorists?’ Carlson asked in response.

‘Twice before the attack, ISIS warned the United States that they would attack Las Vegas in June and August, and after the attack claimed responsibility four times,’ Perry said.

‘Meanwhile, the local law enforcement investigative services are telling us there is no terrorist connection, lone gunman, again, something is not adding up.’

Catherine Lombardo, a lawyer representing the victims of the Las Vegas attack refuted the congressman’s suggestion.

Perry replied: ‘I’m just telling you, I have received what I feel to be…credible evidence of a possible terrorist nexus.

‘We’re going to have to wait until that situation develops.’

Perry also said during the interview that the National Counterterrorism Center should have a role in the investigation, stating, “If ISIS warns about an attack and then an attack occurs and claims responsibility after the fact, it seems to me that at a minimum, they should have some portion of the investigation to clearly debunk that claim and, yet, it hasn’t happened.”

ISIS claimed responsibility for the Las Vegas massacre, but the FBI has stated that there is ‘no connection’ between international terrorism and the gunman who killed 59 people and injured 527 at an outdoor concert on October 1.

Earlier this week, police in Nevada said that more charges could be filed against others in connection with the shooting.

Federal court documents made public Friday showed that as of October 6, the FBI considered Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, ‘the most likely person who aided or abetted Stephen Paddock’.

According to the documents, Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend told investigators they would probably find her fingerprints on bullets because she helped him load ammunition magazines but the FBI agent in charge in Las Vegas, said in October that Danley was not a suspect.

  1. My assessment ; there is more to this, than a madman with a bunch of Guns, wanting to commit mass murder.
    Other case points indicate that “even psychopaths need a reason”, a core issue, a driver for such barbarism.
    Stephen Paddock was an empty man without purpose ; ripe for extremist groups – bent on angry vengeance.!
    Girlfriend: Marilou Danley was in affect, a simple follower; unlikely to have influenced Paddock’s planned action.
    …………………………………………………………………………………..
    It is very likely that the “driver” for Paddocks action lies somewhere between – ISIS inspired copycat terrorism OR he pledged allegiance to ISIS on the Internet. Whether indirectly of directly connected ; in effect – this mass murder “would have been unlikely” without the existence of ISIS propaganda…… yes there is a stink……… And this stink continues, by the manner in which ISIS, has been allowed to contaminate & corrupt the Internet.
