According to a motion filed by Salman’s lawyers, the defense team learned about Seddique Mateen’s work for the FBI on Saturday, in an email from prosecutor Sara Sweeney. She said the elder Mateen had been an FBI source “at various points” between January 2005 and June 2016. Seddique Mateen was on the prosecutors’ witness list, but they rested their case last week without calling him to testify.

Sweeney also disclosed that FBI agents investigating the shooting found receipts for money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan between March 16, 2016, and June 5, 2016. On June 10, Omar Mateen searched for cheap tickets to Istanbul.
