ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Virginia Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee says "there is no imminent threat in the United States" after the attack in London on Saturday (June 3). Speaking on CBS' Face the Nation program on Sunday (June 4), Warner said "I think the very question 'was this terrorist directed or terrorist inspired', the British will continue to investigate. Twenty-one of those injured in Saturday's London Bridge attack are in a critical condition, the Press Association news agency reported on Sunday citing NHS England, the country's health authority. Earlier, the London Ambulance Service said 48 people had been taken to hospital after suffering injuries in the attack, which left seven people dead. Warner also said he was concerned about U.S. President Donald Trump's tweets regarding putting his proposed travel ban in place. "All of the leaders in the Intelligence community have said it would be, in effect, a slap in the face to Muslim Americans and others and in many ways might actually incite more incidents."
