Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, chairman of the House committee, said national law enforcement must stop anyone present at the Capitol riot from flying “unfettered,” after supporters of President Donald Trump forced their way into the building during a rally on Wednesday, prompting an evacuation of officials and staff.
“Given the heinous domestic terrorist attack on the US Capitol yesterday, I am urging the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to use their authorities to add the names of all identified individuals involved in the attack to the federal No-Fly List and keep them off planes,” Thompson said in a statement on Thursday.
This is an action that TSA and the FBI, by law, are able to take but, to my knowledge, have not yet taken. Alleged perpetrators of a domestic terrorist attack who have been identified by the FBI should be held accountable.

Thompson added that the disturbance in DC “threatened the safety” of lawmakers and their aides and “served as an attack on our nation.”

The FBI is seeking to identify individuals instigating violence in Washington, D.C. We are accepting tips and digital media depicting rioting or violence in and around the U.S. Capitol on January 6. If you have information, visit https://t.co/buMd8vYXzH.— FBI (@FBI) January 7, 2021
Secret, due-process-free no-fly lists were one of the worst post-9/11 civil liberties abuses -- I reported on them often. Stunning to see calls from Congress for people to be put on them revived in this climate. I hope people realize what's happening:https://t.co/AhuonnLbbR— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) January 8, 2021
