Las Vegas Attacker’s 200+ Foreign Financial Transactions Flagged for Possible “Covert Terrorism Financing”

30

As authorities search for a motive, Paddock’s finances have become a significant focal point — most notably, 200-plus casino or wire transactions by Paddock that were flagged for review by FinCEN, the U.S. government’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, which collects data to identify potential money laundering or covert terrorism financing. The FBI is also reviewing transactions by Danley that were flagged by FinCEN. According to a source familiar with the probe, the various transactions date back to 2014 and are being vigorously investigated. The sources said one transaction that has drawn significant attention is a $100,000 transfer to the Philippines by either Paddock or Danley prior to Sunday’s shooting. Danley was in the Philippines when Paddock opened fire on the crowd in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas investigation focuses on Paddock’s finances and travel: Sources

Yahoo News, October 7, 2017, (thanks to Dr. Andrew Boston):

As the FBI continues to sift through the past of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, an investigative focus has developed on how he earned money and the recent travels of Paddock and his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, law enforcement officials familiar with the probe told Yahoo.

At least two points of interest were recent trips taken to Dubai, Spain and the Philippines, as well as more than 200 reports detailing large financial transactions Paddock had made at casinos since 2014. Although Danley has family in Dubai and the Philippines, sources told Yahoo that the FBI is seeking to determine the details of all overseas trips involving either Paddock or his girlfriend, as well as any financial transactions that may have taken place on the trips.

Paddock killed 58 people and wounded nearly 500 when he opened fire Sunday night on a country music festival from his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Police say Paddock committed suicide before they got to his room, where they found a trove of weapons that included high-powered rifles. Las Vegas police said Paddock’s attack lasted between nine and 11 minutes.

The sources said one transaction that has drawn significant attention is a $100,000 transfer to the Philippines by either Paddock or Danley prior to Sunday’s shooting. Danley was in the Philippines when Paddock opened fire on the crowd in Las Vegas.

A call to the FBI’s field office requesting comment was not returned. Danley returned to the U.S. on Tuesday night and is cooperating with the investigation, authorities said.

The FBI has not ruled out terrorism as a potential motive for Paddock’s shooting rampage, but a source familiar with the probe told Yahoo that there has been no evidence developed linking him to extremism.

The sources familiar with the investigation said the FBI and authorities are also following other potential leads, including a name on a batch of ammunition found in Paddock’s hotel room that did not match either Paddock or Danley. Authorities are also seeking to determine where and when Paddock purchased several pounds of ammonium nitrate and tannerite — which were among the explosive materials discovered in the hotel room, Paddock’s car and one of his homes. Both ammonium nitrate and tannerite can be ignited in a number of ways, including through the use of a detonator or being struck by a high-velocity projectile such as a bullet.

According to authorities, Paddock’s hotel suite at Mandalay Bay suggested painstaking planning before the shooting took place. Not only did Paddock stockpile 23 guns and high-capacity magazines filled with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, he also created a security perimeter in the hallway with wireless video cameras that would alert him to approaching officers. Authorities said 12 of the rifles Paddock brought to the hotel room were equipped with so-called bump stocks — an aftermarket shoulder stock that uses a specific trigger positioning and a gun’s reciprocating energy to simulate automatic weapon fire. In the wake of the shooting, some federal lawmakers are discussing banning bump stocks.

    The financial transaction may or maynot have any links to his terror act.

    The killer is a Anti-Trump democrat and Antifa activist also claimed by ISIS http://bit.ly/2xb9Js2

    Of course , obama holdovers in admin , police, FBI do not want to probe that.

  • Suresh

    This will not be investigated by Left/Liberal pro-jihadi holdovers in the FBI, police and NSC.

    • ladywarrior

      You are 100% correct.
      There has been more than enough reports that Antifa has teamed up with radical Muslims….

  • mjazzguitar

    Jim Murren is the CEO of MGM resorts, which owns Mandalay Bay, where the Las Vegas massacre took place.
    The groups CEO Jim Murren has thrown his support for include Hamas-affiliated CAIR, SPLC, and the ADL.

    • msdlmoore

      And his wife worked for the Obama administration, follow the money. I’d say Murren should be investigated as well

    • ladywarrior

      Simple fix. Boycott Mandalay Bay and all it’s affiliates…..it worked against Target….and Kellogg’s who gives money to BLM who advocate killing cops, they also recently gave money to SPLC…..Soros and Killary also gave money to those you name.

  • So it seems that he really was some kind of crazy radical, some secret convert to Islam, perhaps?

    • ladywarrior

      Antifa is also connected to radical Islam……

    • CADeplorable1

      Interesting how the Newsweek comments section is full of libtards screaming nooooooo!!!!

      They are going to be beside themselves when it all comes out. Probably pee themselves.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Considering the fbi’s track record on investing crimes involving muslim, this is going to be another exercise in futile preconceived conclusions.

  • Comments

    If the situation were turned and he was a registered and proud republican who had been an anti-obama protester the media would be all over it and the country would be in even more shock than it is right now.
    Instead the media and the left are just concentrating on gun laws, never mind that leftism breeds very very violent people and absolute haters of anything and anyone other than exactly what they themselves are.

    • ladywarrior

      Leftism…..is now Antifa….

  • Dennis Durkop

    The Feds definitely drooped the ball on the bank transfers! Most likely because the guy was rich! Also do not believe he is the only shooter or only one involved for such a big operation!

  • Tonya Parnell

    And the FBI is now looking at this, this should have been a red flag long ago. I guess they were too busy covering for Comey.

  • Alleged-Comment

    You can tell it is a False Flag when they say we must now disarm the American people for, you know, that safety sh it!

    Then they can fondle you like they do at the airport. Only you will be staying at a hotel now.

    • ladywarrior

      Study history……Hitler did the same thing….he sent murderers out into Germany and then told people they would be safer if they gave up their guns…..so they did. Then he took over….and the rest is history.

      Every country that gave up their guns has been taken over by a dictator of one kind or the other. There is a whole list of them on the internet…..

      And one of the first dangerous conflicts America took on after it was formed was against the marauding, murdering Muslims of Islam……Barbary Coast. And here we are again…..hundreds of years later…..history really does repeat itself for those who do not learn and remember.

  • thotz

    Miss Geller, Do you know of any photos of the Las Vegas scene showing blood on the ground from hundreds of people who were shot? It is curious that the couple of daylight pictures I’ve seen show virtually none. Also there should be bullet holes everywhere and pictures of bedlam at emergency room entrances. Something happened but what explains the lack of visible victims, most of whom, I imagine, were ambulatory and should be walking around in bandages and dressings. Americans are always with cameras and most are willing, if not eager, to go on camera to tell their story. You seem to have access to information. Is this a reasonable doubt?

    • ladywarrior

      Thotz….clearly you are either not looking at the same videos and pictures the rest of us are…..or you are a paid troll trying to pretend this didn’t happen…..how disgusting you are…..I live in Vegas….people died and other’s injured horribly. . Blocked, you dhimmi jerk!

      • thotz

        Please, link to the videos and pictures. I really want to see the reality on the ground, the morning after photos once the bodies were removed.

  • ladywarrior

    Exactly. Paddock didn’t wire the sneaky, lying Filipino witch $100,00 to make sure she could get her hair fixed and have tea and crumpets…….and it probably would have been more if there weren’t restrictions on limits wired internationally.

    He and she probably have accounts in banks all over the EU where they made all those stops on that trip.

  • freepetta

    Why believe anything the FIB says? They still don’t admit the terrorist involvement in the San Bernardino and Orlando shootings. Why would the Feds be truthful here? Just consider the various Hillary Clinton investigations, all lies to protect the guilty.

  • InfidelCrusader

    The authorities were quick to assure us that these killings had no connections to Islamic terrorists. Now we learn that his financial activities had been flagged as suspicious. Imagine that.

  • JCL154

    Everything is being controlled by the FBI, and there are too many questions they are not answering. There are several videos that show another shooter on a lower floor ~ 10th.

    If you wanted to maximize your firepower, why would you have 23 guns in the room? Wouldn’t it be much more effective to have 2 guns at every window and have a large stack of loaded magazines at each window? What do you gain by having so many excess rifles in the room that you have to walk over to get?

    How is it this guy broke 2 windows on 32 floor and the glass fell to the concrete below, laid there, and no one reported it? Some people must have said something. So there had to be someone who accepted those comments, but who were they? Why didn’t they take immediate action?

    If this guy was the only one involved, why don’t they release the video they have? All hotels have video rolling, and there were reportedly some added videos put up in the hallway, by unknown persons.

    The gov knew about the financial transactions and did nothing. Why was that? Was that all part of the plan?

    If this guy was involved in a dangerous transaction, what would he do with his girlfriend? He just might send her far away and give her some cash in case he was killed.

    Why would this guy need two airplanes?

    There are several sites that say this guy was working for FBI to set up a sting with ISIS terrorists. (This info supposedly leaked from LV Police.) He was an arms dealer working with the knowledge of FBI, and going to deliver guns to ISIS, then the FBI was going to arrest them. But has cover was blown and then ISIS shot the people and killed Paddock. That makes more sense than him going crazy for no reason. Many contend this was another Fast and Furious operation that failed.

  • Drumwaster

    Fascinating that they didn’t even know this guy HAD a girlfriend, much less who she was, much less WHERE she was, but they were certain enough about his total lack of international connections to have a press conference within 48 hours of the echoes dying away. 48 hours. (Suddenly the facts don’t match up, but they’re the FBI and they would never ever lie to the American people, would they?)

    Meanwhile, they have been looking into Trump and the Russia connection for more than a year, and have found nothing. Conclusion? “We gotta have more time.”
