But the campaign has not explained who was responsible for putting the controversial figure on stage.
Mateen said that he was “invited by the Democratic party.”
“I am a member, so as a member, I get the invitations. There’s nothing particular about it,” he said.
Mateen would likely have been screened as he entered the event, although to appear on the stage with Clinton he would likely require additional screening by the Secret Service or be hand selected by a staffer.
“Those behind the candidate are almost always screened in advance,” a campaign staffer for a former presidential candidate who had Secret Service protection explained in an interview with Breitbart News.
He admitted, however, that a staffer would frequently vouch for additional people who could join the candidate on stage during the rally.
He explained that it was highly unlikely that the Secret Service would allow a person to approach or stand on the stage behind the candidate, without advance screening or explicit permission from a member of the campaign.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

"We are looking forward to the day when moderate Muslims will be able to take control of their governments, their educational systems, and their law and order, so the Western world could resume mutual constructive relations based on friendship and respect. The whole world is looking forward to that day and praying for a peaceful Middle East. The ball is now in the Muslim world's court."

"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
