The FBI this week detailed to Congress a series of mistakes and missed opportunities to intervene before a gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida -- including a revelation that staffers knew two warnings about suspect Nikolas Cruz were related, but still closed the case.
FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich made the comments in a closed briefing Tuesday with members of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.
In a summary released Wednesday to Fox News, Bowdich cited two tips that the FBI received about Cruz in September 2017 and January 2018 that were mishandled.

Sheesh, it’s almost like they want these things to happen...
Yep, to blow off two tips that far apart especially when they connected to each other is mind blowing.
They . didn’t . care
FBI ain’t got time for that! They got a President to take down!
It also takes the wind out of the standard line about most agents are just patriots doing their job.
Someone(s) in the FBI should be charged as co-conspirator(s) to the mass murders!
Florida’s Republican-controlled government will get right on it and pass stupid gun laws. That will fix it.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
I was expecially interested in this particular individual because I hadn't heard of him, and he also appealed to future possible victims like Christians or unwanted who could be "marked" in some way and "tracked". I'll have to watch it again.
As an aside, it was my first knowledge of the Transfer Agreement (another video) where Hitler, presumably for a nice payoff, allowed some Jews in the 1930's emigrate to Israel and take their money ad property. The financial transaction was accomplished through setting up a bank in Israel and transferred from a German bank. I hope I remember it reasonably accurately. No bitcoins and other crypto-currencies or blockchains then which I'm trying to learn a little about.
That appears to be the objective of the Deep State conspiracy.
Same foolish dime-store New Deal game Republicans have been doing since the 1930s and have always ended up losers.
Why do you think Mueller hasn't investigated Hillary, Obama, Lynch, Comie, etc Who sold 20% of our top grade Uranium to the Russians? COLLUSION??? Who then paid 145 MILLION to the Clinton Fundation???
It's because Mueller was involved in the whole thing and this whole phony Trump / Russian medling thing has been proven to be BS!..... The truth is coming out and of course CNN - MSNBC - CBS haven't reported a word of truth about it....... ready for the surprise?.....
......"Anyone remember that Mueller personally delivered the uranium core samples by hand to Russia For the Uranium 1 deal?" Of course he's not going to investigate when he was a willing accomplice...
I know i’ll catch hell for this but I don’t give a damn.
Donald Trump gave that RINO jackass Scott and his fellow RINOs the cover they needed to pass this ridiculous, anti-freedom gun bill.
When the next school shooting takes place - and it will - you can kiss semi-autos goodbye.
911 all over again.
It’s eerie that after years of numerous contact with authorities and school records pointing at Cruz as a threat, netted nothing. This kid was manifesting problems while still in Middle School.
It is beyond pathetic that a school district, a family, the sheriff/police department, and the Florida FBI, could pave the streets for this kid’s destiny, and that 17 innocent souls had to pay the price for all that institutional stupidity and neglect.
When these duck heads finally are forced to meet up with this guy, now grown, they even totally blow that up, by doing no more than arriving and parking their patrol cars.
The school is a willing sitting duck themselves.
The “...mistakes were made...” defense.
When is someone going to get fired?
Some many failures so little accountability. Trump was elected to fire and fix.
The title is a lie.
The ‘lawmakers’ referenced therein are incapable of learning.
