Legislator claims San Bernardino shooter's visa was 'sloppily approved'

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, said Saturday after reviewing San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik's visa application that it was "sloppily approved."

He argued there's no conclusive evidence in the file demonstrating that Malik had met Syed Rizwan Farook, her future husband and the other shooter, in person, The Washington Post reports.

"All required procedures were followed," the State Department said Saturday.

Malik and Farook died in a police shootout Dec. 2 after authorities said they carried out the deadly California massacre.
