CNN host Brianna Keilar asserted Wednesday that the Boeing crash in Ethiopia last week was due in part to Trump’s latest government shutdown in an interview with Michigan Democratic Rep. Kildee.

“So Boeing actually failed to provide a software fix for the flight system in the 737 max 8 until after that October crash,” Keilar said in a question to the Democratic rep.

The article goes on to state the following:

“There were pilots who looked at that and felt like this was a criminal omission. That was what they thought about this. The software fix, then according to The Wall Street Journal, was supposed to happen in January, and it was delayed because of the government shutdown because the FAA was offline. What’s your reaction to this revelation?”

The article in question ran in The WSJ under the headline “Boeing to Make Key Change in 737 MAX Cockpit Software.”

According to The Daily Caller, The Wall Street Journal article Keilar referred to said Boeing did not provide the software update due to “differences of opinion and technical and engineering issues.”

The FAA did not press Boeing on the software update delay because the administration felt there was “no imminent safety threat,” The Journal wrote.

Additionally, thousands of FAA safety inspectors and other staff were working during the period to  ensure flight safety across the nation.
