The third-ranking House Republican is calling for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s security men to be denied entry to the United States — or expelled — for beating U.S. citizens after his last visit to the White House.

Fifteen of Erdoğan’s guards were criminally charged for attacking Americans in Washington in May 2017. The guards were allowed to flee, but two Turkish-American collaborators were sentenced to one year in prison.

The article goes on to state the following:

Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, chairwoman of the House Republican Caucus, wrote Monday to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that those involved in 2017 attacks should be barred from returning this week, or “immediately expelled.”

The Washington Examiner noted, “Trump never condemned the 2017 attack, but footage of the event contributed to a sharp downturn in U.S.-Turkish relations. The House passed a unanimous resolution calling for perpetrators to be prosecuted.”

Cheney wrote in her letter, “This behavior is sadly routine for President Erdoğan on Turkish soil. It is wrong and disturbing there, and it is an affront to American values and entirely unwelcome here. The Erdoğan regime’s use of violence against innocent civilians anywhere is inhumane, uncivilized, and unacceptable.”

Actor Robert De Niro shared videos of the horrific incident on Twitter, and called for a protest when Erdogan visits the White House again on Wednesday:

The Washington Post had also posted a video of the melee when it occurred in May 2017:

    Sounds like the DS and DeNiro want chaos for some reason. Does Erdogan have something they don’t want out. If that POS DeNiro is involved it’s something dirty. They think they can hide all their wrong doings.
