FBI Arrest Pulse Nightclub Killer's Wife



Yesterday, the feds arrested Noor Salman, the wife of Omar Mateen, the Pulse Nightclub killer. She was charged with obstructing justice.

USA Today reports
The law enforcement official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the case, told USA TODAY Salman will likely face her first court appearance Tuesday. The charge could indicate that authorities believe she knew more about Mateen’s plan than she has previously admitted. CBS News said Salman also faces a charge of aiding and abetting.

Salman, in interviews with federal investigators after the shooting, allegedly acknowledged driving Mateen to the Pulse nightclub at least once before her husband launched the assault. But she told the Times in November she was unaware of his true intentions until he sent her a 4 a.m. text message the night of the shooting, asking whether she had seen what happened on the news.
