Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, stated Monday that Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) could be placed on the no-fly list if they are deemed responsible for inciting last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol.

“There’s no exemption for being put on the no-fly list,” Thompson said in an interview with SiriusXM’s The Joe Madison Show. “Even a member of Congress that commits a crime, you know, they expel from the body.”

“There are ethics charges that can be brought against those individuals,” the lawmaker added. “And people are looking at all this. What Hawley did and what Cruz did was horrible.”
