The US House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security Chairman wants pro-Trump Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to be placed on a federal “No Fly” list for “actions they were involved in” during the breach on the Capitol.
“There is no doubt about it,” said Homeland Security Committee Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson in response to a question about the possible prohibition of Trump supporters on Capitol Hill from traveling by plane. “First of all, these people, in my opinion, can be classified as terrorists because of the actions they took part in on Wednesday. Now, under normal circumstances, international terrorists are put on no-fly lists. They are national terrorists, it’s the same thing. A terrorist is a terrorist, no matter who you are.”
Thompson was then asked if the two GOP senators who had spearheaded the action to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election could face similar travel constraints.
“There is talk of incitement to insurgency, which could be done by Senators Hawley and Cruz and a congressman who allegedly led rioters to Pelosi’s office,” noted interview host Joe Madison, referring to suspicions surrounding Representative Lauren Boebert, a Republican from Colorado. “If these people are found responsible, should they be on the no-fly list?”
“There’s no doubt about it,” Thompson replies. “There is no exemption to be put on the no-fly list.” An effort to expel several GOP members of Congress has been initiated by Democrat Cori Bush in the US House of Representatives.
