SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) – Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Community, says it’s premature to conclude that one of the California attackers was self-radicalized or “moved by some international actor.”
Schiff told CNN on Thursday that he had been briefed by the FBI in the morning and that information is continuing to come in.
He says it’s possible that the killings of 14 people were connected to terrorism but that it’s also possible it was workplace violence or a combination of the two.
He says investigators are looking through social media and chasing down both foreign and domestic leads to look for connections to terrorism.
But he says federal authorities are not in a position to conclude that Syed Farook self-radicalized.
