In an interview with SiriusXM’s The Joe Madison Show on Monday, Rep. Bennie Thompson, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, warned that Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley could be placed on a no-fly list if they are deemed responsible for inciting last week’s disorder on Capitol Hill.
“There’s no exemption for being put on the no-fly list,” Thompson said. “Even a member of Congress that commits a crime, you know, they expel from the body.”
Cruz and Hawley have been slammed by Democrats and establishment Republicans for objecting to Congress’s certification of the 2020 presidential election in favor of new Commander-in-Thief Joe Biden. The two also have been accused of inciting the temporary occupation at the Capitol which occurred during the certification process.
“There are ethics charges that can be brought against those individuals,” he continued. “And people are looking at all this. What Hawley did and what Cruz did was horrible.” Fact check: it was not horrible.
After his interview, Thompson was told on social media that he “should be ashamed” for threatening Cruz and Hawley. “I am not ashamed. However, they should be,” he replied. No, they shouldn’t. They’re guilty of nothing, and both men denounced the D.C. chaaos and called for a de-escalation in tensions.
