NBC's Frank Figliuzzi: Current Members Of Congress Were "Command And Control Element" For January 6 Terrorism

|

Former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi told MSNBC on Wednesday that "people sitting in Congress right now" might have to be arrested and prosecuted for the role they may have played in the January 6 Capitol riot.

He said when dealing with terrorism, "you've got to attack and dismantle the command and control element" and that this "may mean people sitting in Congress right now."

"What happened on January 6 is domestic terrorism. What have we learned from our experience with international terrorism? In order to address that problem, arresting low-level operatives is merely a speed bump, not a roadblock. In order to really tackle terrorism, this time domestically, you've got to attack and dismantle the command and control element of a terrorist group."


"Unfortunately, and I know this is painful to hear -- that may mean people sitting in Congress right now, people in and around the former president," he said. "That's how you do this. otherwise, recruitment, inciting, and cult-like leadership continues to recruit people to violence."
