Global Terrorist Threats Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey, and National Counterterrorism Center Director Matthew Olsen testified at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on terrorist threats. They testified that they had no information ISIL was plotting attacks in the U.S. but said they were concerned with homegrown terrorists radicalized through the Internet to carry out violent attacks.
