WOW! Stephen Paddock’s Transactions Flagged For Possible “Covert Terrorism Financing”
Rukmini Callimachi, a terror expert who has studied the Islamic State for years, believes Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock may have been a jihadist.
Daily Star UK reports:
Vile terror group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, but cops have rejected this, claiming there is no evidence that Paddock was linked to the group.
The death worshippers then went on to claim that Paddock had converted six months before the deadly shooting.
She wrote: “ISIS has rarely claimed attacks that were not by either their members or sympathisers.
“I don’t buy the argument that they are now opportunistically claiming attacks to deflect from battlefield losses.”
She added that ISIS members in chatrooms were declaring the incident as a cover-up, and that Paddock was “one of their brothers”.
She also wrote: “ISIS considers an attack to be their handiwork if the attacker is sent or inspired by them.”
The Islamic State tripled down on the Las Vegas massacre on Thursday.
The Islamic terrorist group claimed Stephen Paddock converted to Islam six months ago.

Yahoo News reports:
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.
