Motive?

Mark Gorton and Trowbridge Ford suggest that Hinckley's assassination attempt was organised by the Cabal so that Vice president George H. W. Bush could assume full control.[2][3]

"No longer a danger"

In July 2016, ordering his release, US District Judge Paul Friedman said Mr Hinckley no longer posed a danger to himself or others.[1]
