Coverup Questions Emerge Over Vegas Security Guard’s ‘Ellen’ Appearance

Jesus Campos

Following his sudden re-appearance on The Ellen Show after vanishing for 6 days, numerous questions remain unanswered about Mandalay Bay shooting hero Jesus Campos’ timeline and perhaps more concerning still is that The Daily Mail reports that he was pressured into giving his only interview to Ellen DeGeneres because the giant company that owns the Las Vegas casino feared he would spill the beans about the shooting timeline if he was grilled by real journalists.

As we detailed previously, Campos had originally agreed to do five interviews, all on Thursday last week, but suddenly went missing, his union boss, who was helping set up the deal, told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview. David Hickey, president of the Michigan-based International Union, Security Police and Fire Professionals of America, would not confirm that MGM was behind the decision, but said the company certainly influenced Campos.

‘I was in a meeting with MGM’s upper management and they were definitely concerned about how tough someone like Hannity would be on him and they voiced their opinions,’ Hickey said.

He said all sides had agreed parameters for the interviews. ‘Everyone knew he wasn’t to talk about security protocols, staffing or training or give out names of employees.’

But he said the company — that, like most of Vegas’s casino industry, obsessively controls what employees are allowed to say to the media — was pressuring Campos not to give too much away.

‘I thought they were being negative, telling him that someone was going to be tough and how they were worried about his health — it wasn’t the thing he needed to hear four hours before the interviews were going to begin.’

Hickey said he met with the MGM executives at a location in Las Vegas where Campos was staying. They met in the living room but he wanted a word with some of the management team in private so they went into the bedroom.

When they returned, Campos had gone, and Hickey said he hasn’t seen or heard from him since. The next thing he knew the security official had bailed on the five interviews.

Then he learned on Monday that instead of appearing on a news show he would go on Ellen.

‘It certainly wasn’t my choice that he should appear on that circus,’ Hickey told DailyMail.com.

Ellen did not press him on the official timeline of the shooting, which has changed three times since the massacre.

And that appears to have been MGM’s plan.

When he went through his recollection of the night, she did not press him to clarify some of the lingering questions about the official timeline – such as whether he or hotel officials delayed calling police for six minutes after he was shot.

If that version is proven to be true, it could open MGM to massive costs from lawsuits.

DeGeneres told him:

‘I know you’ve had so many people asking for you to tell the story and talk about it and I understand your reluctance. You’re talking about it now and you’re not going to talk about it again.

‘I don’t blame you. Why relive it over and over?’

Sources told DailyMail.comMGM is worried that families of the 58 people murdered as well as many of the 546 injured  in the Mandalay Bay massacre will launch lawsuits potentially worth billions of dollars against the company, and they thought Campos might not keep his story straight under the pressure of the TV lights and tough questioning.

That is why Campos, 25, appeared on a daytime chat show hosted by a fast-talking, dancing comedienne, rather than take questions from TV hardhitters such as Fox News’ Sean Hannity, NBC News or ABC News.

‘MGM was behind the decision to call off all the interviews and did a deal with Ellen, knowing she would not play hardball on the timeline as long as she had the exclusive,’ a TV insider told DailyMail.com.

The stench of coverup continues…

    Will his next appearance be on Wheel of Fortune or maybe the Price is Right ? Hopefully he won’t pull a Ron Brown, Vince Foster or Loretta Fuddy. Too much of the wrong knowledge is hazardous to your health if you share it.

    Ahhh, good ol’ Hell-in Degenerate……..Now THERE’S hard-hitting take-no-prisoners REAL reporting…..yuppers.

    REALLY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  • Never mind the fact that he was not registered as a security guard in the first place…. But let not the facts be known.

  • Jeremy Peace

    He gained about 100 lbs in the span of a week, or better yet, they killed the other Campos and this Jesus is another puppet. Why even go on a liberal show vs Hannity, oh yeah, part of the cover up.

  • Rayven Wrathchild

    I think the guy is here illegally and this would point the ICE heat at MGM and the Vegas scene. The guy didn’t even have proper papers to be a guard. They are hiding something big.

    Obviously they are worried about potential lawsuits from the victims. If they didn’t follow protocols that could have prevented or reduced the shooting, and this kid spilled the beans about it, it could cost the casino a lot of money. And it wouldn’t take much.
    Some simple little detail that most people wouldn’t even notice would become a major focal point for some lawyer. And even if they can’t use Campo’s tv interview directly in court, whatever details he gives could at least provide the lawyers with a lead. Sometimes that’s all it takes.

    yes it is disgusting, “why relive it over and over”, well if he is a hero as the narrative plays, seems like he would want to relive it over and over.

    Someone with a few spare hours could go through all the video and at least have the timeline well established, AFTER the shooting started. Release of the hotel records, recordings of radio comms, and his supposed switch to cell phone would be very revealing.

    But we can’t even get Hillary or Podesta to face charges, this country is a laughing stock.
