Broward County Sheriff Admits He Learned Report Deputy Never Entered School BEFORE CNN Town Hall

In a disastrous interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel admitted he was aware of reports about deputy resource officer, Scot Peterson, failing to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, prior to CNN’s town hall on the shooting. 
This portion comes at the 9:00 minute mark.

Tapper: When did you find out that Deputy Peterson had not gone into the building? How soon after the shooting did you know that? 
Israel: Not for days. 
Tapper: How many days? 
Israel: I’m not sure. 
Tapper: Because you spent much of the Wednesday night town hall on CNN to meet with the entire Stoneman Douglas communities, students and teachers and parents, attacking the NRA, saying the police need more powers, more money to prevent future tragedies, you didn’t disclose any of this, to the crowd then, the Stoneman Douglas high school community, did you know it then, did you know it Wednesday night? 
Israel: It was spoken about earlier during that day.
 That's the truth.

And then comes his excuse.
I’m not on a timeline for TV or any news show, we need to get it right, we need to get it accurate, we’re talking about people’s lives, we’re talking about a community, we need to corroborate, we need to verify, and once we did the next day, and I looked at the tape and I was 100% certain that it happened the way I was told about, the investigators initially told me about, I didn’t even release it right then…..
In the same interview, Israel compared himself to a president, and touted his ‘amazing leadership.’

I don't think I have ever seen a public official whose self-regard was more out of line with reality than in the case of Scott Israel.
