Suggested that the president should suspend habeas corpus and send people to Guantanamo Bay without due process: "I suggest that our commander in chief ought to utilize Article I, Section 9 and take all of these individuals that are suspected, these ones on the internet spewing jihadi rhetoric...to scoop them up, charge them with treason and, under habeas corpus, detain them indefinitely at Gitmo."
