Here are the details so far…
In a shocking turn of events, Homeland Security Committee Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) is now considering placing Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley on the federal “No Fly” list following the riot that broke out on U.S. Capitol.
According to the Gateway Pundit, after being asking placing protestors on the no-fly list, Thompson stated, “There’s no question about it. First of all, these folks, in my opinion, can be classified as domestic terrorists because of the actions they participated in on Wednesday. Now under normal circumstances international terrorists are out on no-fly lists. These are domestic terrorists–same thing. A terrorist is a terrorist, no matter who you are.”
Rep. Thompson was then asked “There’s talk about liability for inciting this insurrection falling, maybe, in the laps of Senator Hawley and Senator Cruz and a member of Congress who may have Facetimed or led people to Pelosi’s office. If these folks are found liable, should they be on the no-fly list?”
Thompson said, “Well, there’s no question about it. There’s no exemption for being put on the no-fly list.”
