While Steve Bannon is mid-broadcast and talking about Trump on his web show, the news playing on the huge television behind him suddenly runs a massive chyron reading “Bannon Indicted For Contempt of Congress.
Steve Bannon has been indicted today by a federal grand jury on two counts of contempt of Congress stemming from his failure to comply with a subpoena issued by the Jan. 6 Select Committee.
Steve Bannon is charged with one contempt count involving his refusal to appear for a deposition and another involving his refusal to produce documents, despite a subpoena from the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol.
What people are saying?
John Newey People in glass houses should not throw stones. He was happy to brag about the events of 6/1/21, and thus draw attention to his involvement in insurrection against US Constitution. He seeks to compound his action & defiance for rule of law. He must pay price.
Dan McManus Bannon has been indicted. He is not yet in custody. He has not yet turned over a single document or uttered a single word of testimony. THAT is what is necessary. If he stalls until the midterms, game over.
