Unsealed court documents released Jan. 12 show how Microsoft denied the FBI’s request to examine online records of the Las Vegas shooter.
“After execution of the warrant, it became apparent and was confirmed with Microsoft that Microsoft was refusing to provide data relating to/contained in OneDrive online storage files for either [email] account,” said a search warrant affidavit produced in the days after the Las Vegas Massacre.
The affidavit is among 321 pages of records ordered unsealed by Judge Jennifer A. Dorsey of the United States District Court for the District of Nevada.
It reveals that Microsoft allowed FBI agents to examine the email content of Stephen C. Paddock and his girlfriend Marilou Danley, but not other online files stored in the OneDrive accounts associated with the email addresses. OneDrive is Microsoft’s online service for document storage.
According to the affidavit, Microsoft told investigators that it believed that the warrant to investigate Paddock’s email did not encompass Paddock’s other online activities hosted by Microsoft.
“Investigators believe therefore that there is additional evidence Microsoft currently possesses that relates to the OneDrive online storage service, as well as in a suite of other online services that Microsoft offers,” said the affidavit.
The other online Microsoft services referenced include Office 365, Windows Live Mail, Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Messenger, Microsoft Family Safety, and Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector.
The affidavit shows that after being denied access, the FBI sought another warrant to obtain all of Paddock’s online records that Microsoft possessed.
Microsoft and MGM Resorts had a relationship prior to the Oct. 3 shooting that left 58 people dead and 557 injured. MGM owns the Mandalay Bay Hotel, where Paddock opened fire on a crowd at a country concert from his 32nd suite.
In February, MGM contracted with Microsoft for the exclusive rights to host the largest single-corporation meeting in MGM’s history. The multi-year deal is expected to bring 30,000 participants to the MGM, where Microsoft will combine four separate annual events into one signature meeting.
Billionaire businessman, co-founder and former chairman and CEO of Microsoft, owns a majority share of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. The Four Seasons, whose other majority owner is embattled Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal, occupies the top five floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense
They’re stepping up to the plate.
The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”
NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.
“We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”
According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”
“The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”
The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.
NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.
Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
