Former Trump campaign manager and top advisor Steve Bannon has now reportedly been indicted on a grand jury on two counts of contempt of Congress over his refusal to testify regarding his involvement in the events of January 6th.

According to reports, an arrest warrant has also now been issued for Bannon’s Arrest:

According to the Department of Justice:

“As detailed in the indictment, on Sept. 23, 2021, the Select Committee issued a subpoena to Mr. Bannon,” said U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves for the District of Columbia. “The subpoena required him to appear and produce documents to the Select Committee, and to appear for a deposition before the Select Committee. According to the indictment, Mr. Bannon refused to appear to give testimony as required by subpoena and refused to produce documents in compliance with a subpoena.”

In its subpoena, the Select Committee said it had reason to believe that Bannon had information relevant to understanding events related to Jan. 6. Bannon, formerly a Chief Strategist and Counselor to the President, has been a private citizen since departing the White House in 2017.

Each count of contempt of Congress carries a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of one year in jail, as well as a fine of $100 to $1,000. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

An indictment is merely an allegation and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Just remember that last sentence – innocent until proven guilty – something the demorats forgot when Hillary and them purported the holocaust lie of Russia Collusion that hurt all of America. And so they continue . . . .

The useless democRAT party is becoming more and more corrupt everyday. Time to immediately start ecall campaigns against every democRAT and remove them from office. We never see indictments for all those liars and corrupt politicians who tried to remove Trump from office as soon as he was elected. They are the real insurrectionist and threat to our democracy with their attempted coup against Trump.

Total double std!! When Obamas AG Eric Holder refused to give information to Congress regarding
Fast and Furious that resulted in the death of a Border Patrol agent..NOTHING was done about it
and swept under the rug and ignored because he was a democrat in bed with Obama!!!! He was cited
with Contempt of Congress!! But because Bannon is not a democrat and Piglosi’s Posse is after him
for some thing political not near the level of what Holder did…..it’s OK!!!!!!! Think not !! This Piglosi
thing is out of control and everyone knows it!!! So let’s get real ok? Apply rules equally which the
democrats DO NOT DO !!! Disgusting …..

By getting these two indictments on former associate bannon the Corrupt leftists like Pelosy believe they can now move forward and get similar indictments on all of Trumps associates as well as Trump himself.
They do not expect any success in court – what they are hoping for is to produce by their actions some form of backlash from the American public, Any backlash in the minds of those who stole the election will justify imposing “Martial law” nation wide so as to cancel 2022 Midterm elections as well as suspend the Constitution.
The left has run out of wiggle room

The Demo-CREEPS have turned the judicial process upside down and inside out: now Steve Bannon is GUILTY until proven innocent, don’t doubt it. This is a kangaroo court propped up by charges trumped up (no pun intended?) by shadowy operatives just like those in the old Soviet Union.

If they charge Bannon with Contempt of Congress, he should just respond with “No, DUH! Anyone with half a brain finds this Congress contemptible!”

It’s not bad enough they wasted a ton of money and time on 2 impeachments and the Mueller investigation, but now they’re wasting more time and money on Jan. 6th. We all saw what happened and it doesn’t warrant this garbage —– peoples’ rights have been taken away and they are being treated like dogs. Liz cheney should really be so ashamed of herself, and yet —— not!!

The tipping point for the revolution was about 3% of the population. The DOJ, FBI and the leftest democrats keep nudging and nudging with bogus raids, search warrants, congressional investigations etc. while their favs are proving that there is no impartial justice system in the U.S. any more. When all credibility in the justice system has been lost what comes next? Just askin.
