Ryan rips 'preposterous' ISIS redaction from shooter transcript
by Julian Hattem
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) quickly criticized the Justice Department's decision to redact references to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) from a partial transcript of calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to negotiators, calling the move "preposterous."
"We know the shooter was a radical Islamist extremist inspired by ISIS. We also know he intentionally targeted the LGBT community," Ryan said in a statement Monday.
"The administration should release the full, unredacted transcript so the public is clear-eyed about who did this, and why."
