FBI special agent Aaron Rouse said at a press conference Wednesday that the FBI has leads in the investigation of the Las Vegas shooting “all across the United States and all across the world.”
Rouse said, in reference to the Las Vegas shooting Sunday, “There’s going to be questions, I’m sure you’re going to have questions about people we’ve been talking to, maybe people outside of the United States. The fundamental trust of the American people and the FBI is based upon our discretion–and how good would that discretion be if we were to provide information that they provided to us in confidence?”
“This is about informing on an investigation, this is about resolving an investigation, so specifics regarding any individual contact cannot be answered. You need us, you trust us, and the way we have that trust is by using good discretion about what we share. Additionally, we have multiple leads across the United States and all across the world for our legal industries determining the whereabouts of the panel of the people involved in this investigation, and that leads grows. A lot of these leads will go nowhere but we have to follow them, and that’s going to take some time,” Rouse said.
