Of all people, it was Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson who first announced and confirmed to the public that there was only one shooter in Dallas (after news reports varied from two shooters to four and repeatedly described triangulated gunfire). Then there’s the “misreporting” (above) on exactly how the suspected shooter died…
But here’s a question: why was DHS so involved in the first place?
Via Daily Caller:
Officials at the Cause of Action Institute, a nonprofit government oversight group, are seeking documents they believe may show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is withholding vital information about the Dallas shooter from the public. Micah Johnson killed five police officers in Dallas July 7 before police killed him with a bomb delivered by a robot…
“Because Secretary Johnson appears to be the first public official to confirm that only one shooter existed, it raises questions as to what extent DHS was involved during the aftermath of the shooting and why local authorities were not first in alerting the public.”
“Additionally, discrepancies between statements by President Obama and the Dallas police chief raise concerns that there may be additional information about the motives of the gunman that are being withheld from the public by the Obama administration,” Lechner continued.
