Reps. Cummings, Thompson Voice Concerns on Gap in Capitol Security

“Somebody called from the Tampa Bay Times… shortly after the call the incident occrured,” confirmed Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) in the Speaker’s Lobby between House votes. Thompson was relaying a conversation he had this morning with the Department of Homeland Security.

Is there a gap in security?

“There’s a gap. There’s no question. I mean how can you fly undetected that distance and it not be a vulnerability,” Thompson said as he detailed information that’s been relayed to him on the incident.
