Steve Hooper told Mike Broomhead that the El Paso shooter was motivated to carry out his shooting after watching the recent Democrat debate, where they all raised their hands to give illegals free healthcare.
Hooper claimed that the El Paso shooter told the FBI this information in the interrogation room. Hooper also claimed the shooter had no issues with what he did because he felt justified.
