A California judge will decide Wednesday whether to free the widow of the gunman who killed dozens of people at a Florida nightclub or keep her behind bars until she faces trial on charges of aiding his attack.
Lawyers for the widow of the man who staged a deadly terrorist attack at a Florida nightclub said she had no advance knowledge of the plot.
The Justice Department on Tuesday released the indictment against Noor Salman, the wife of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.
Law enforcement officials immediately suspected terrorism and adjusted their staging areas due to fears about an explosive device as they responded to reports of shots fired at a gay nightclub in Orlando.
"Selectively editing this transcript is preposterous," House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) said in a statement. "We know the shooter was a radical Islamist extremist inspired by ISIS."
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said President Obama was "directly responsible" for the terror attack in Orlando due to his failure to combat the rise of ISIS.
The 30-year-old wife of the gunman who opened fire inside an Orlando nightclub is facing intense scrutiny as the FBI tries to determine whether she had advance knowledge of the massacre.
