Homeland Security Sec.: Too ‘Early’ to Conclude Terrorism in EgyptAir Crash

jeh johnsonHomeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson appeared on Fox News Sunday today to talk about EgyptAir and he repeatedly emphasized that it is far too early to say the crash was an act of terrorism yet.

He told John Roberts that the U.S. is offering assistance in the investigation, and “we cannot rule out some type of terrorist act, but it’s still very early.”

But as Roberts pointed out, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were very quick to jump on the terror angle. Clinton said it was likely terrorism and Trump said if you don’t think it was terrorism, you’re “100 percent wrong.”

JJ- “I have no comment about that”

Johnson avoided saying anything specific about the two candidates and instead simply said it’s too early.
