Dem rep told Orlando shooter 'made pledge of allegiance' to ISIS

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on Sunday that he was told the Orlando, Fla. nightclub shooting suspect pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

"What I've heard from the Department of Homeland Security this morning is that, according to local police, he made a pledge of allegiance to ISIL," Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN, using an alternate acronym for ISIS.

"[He] was heard praying in a foreign language and I don't know if this was at some point during the course of the shooting but that's what I'm hearing, obviously second hand, coming ultimately from local police."
