TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): What are your questions?

CONGRESSMAN SCOTT PERRY (R-PA): Well, I smell a rat like a lot of Americans do. Nothing is adding up. It's been four months as you said. The man is dead, they said he’s a lone gunman, lone shooter yet we can’t get the autopsy results.  But even more troubling than that, recently I have been made aware of what I believe to be credible evidence, credible information regarding potential terrorist infiltration through the southern border regarding this incident.

CARLSON: Terrorist –

PERRY: Yes sir.

CARLSON: -- connections.

PERRY: Yes sir.

CARLSON: OK, what’s the outline of that? What would that mean?

PERRY: Well, they could be, well let’s face it, ISIS twice before the attack, ISIS warned the United States that they would attack Las Vegas I think in June and August and then after the attack claimed responsibility four times. Meanwhile the local law enforcement investigative services are telling us there is no terrorist connection lone gunman, again, something is not adding up.


CATHERINE LOMBARDO: We have seen no evidence of a terrorist attack. I will ask with all due respect, congressman, unless have you specific evidence to back that up, it seems a bit irresponsible to make that allegation so, if you do, or make that assertion, if do you have any evidence of that, I'm asking you right now to share it with us and tell us what that is. My clients –

PERRY: I’m not able to.


PERRY: I'm telling you I have received what I feel to be and believe to be credible evidence of a possible terrorist nexus. 

LOMBARDO: What is it?

PERRY: We’re going to have to wait –

LOMBARDO: What is it?

PERRY: -- until that situation develops.
