The House of Representatives Voted on Thursday afternoon to hold former top Trump aide Steve Bannon in contempt for his refusal to submit to a subpoena which demanded he testify before congress.

As Axios reports:

The House of Representatives voted 229-202 on Thursday to hold former Trump strategist Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the Jan. 6 select committee.

Why it matters: The Justice Department will now consider bringing criminal charges against Bannon, marking a significant escalation in the Jan. 6 committee’s efforts to enforce subpoenas against Trump allies who refuse to cooperate.

Between the lines: If the vote demonstrated Democrats’ united front in using any means necessary to uncover facts about Trump’s role in Jan. 6, it also showed similar unity among Republicans for opposing the investigation.

A total of only 9 Republicans voted with Democrats to hold Bannon in contempt.

Wow. All those Dems that have refused subpoenas in the past will also see the fate Bannon will have to face. The double standard in this country needs to stop.

You start out OK, but I sure can think of indicting them for many, many, many more things.
My, dad, uncles, all those who fought in WW II, if alive, would make sure they got to the right place.

Steve Bannon, better be careful, the illegal Democratic communist party has a bull’s eye on his back. He is not like Obama goons, who committed endless felonies without fear of indictment. However, I suggest my illegal communist masters working to cover up their endless current acts of treason with keeping alive the January 6, 2021 riot on capital. Here are some facts, for my communist masters and propaganda news. Attorney General Holder is still in contempt of congress, but no one dare arrest an Obama rat! Why wasn’t Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Rosenstein, Steele, Page, Rice, Leaner, Clinton, and I can go on forever, not arrested. There is a final fact my communist masters truly believe the American do not follow, or remember these criminals who are untouchable. Look at pin head Nitwit Attorney General Garland, who wanted the young ladies of 5 year old kids arguing with school boards over critical race theory Marxism indoctrination propaganda program arrested as domestic terrorist. While his son in law a Leftest, is selling critical race Marxist crap to the public schools, making a profile. You think this Garland will get into trouble, nope he is a leftest. Last fact never in our history has such pure evil, evil to the core, taken power over us illegally, and committed treasonous acts against us, without fear. Open border kills thousand of our people with the illegal drugs coming with the Democratic party invited invasion third world economic migrants, their not refugees as their labeled for welfare. We must not support them, but send them back asap.. We lost our sovereignty as a nation, our military is run my lying evil scum bags, like the entire administration. Look they plan to arrest Trump, yet Biden a proven crook, walk free, with treasonous Obama? Afghanistan democrats abandoned our own people, Iran thanks to Obama has the atomic bomb, we are being invaded by millions and millions of undocumented illegals, we must support without our consent. Who asked us, if we wanted open borders and if we [email protected] to suppor countless millions or our communist masters can enslave us? Look this is an atomic powder keg, the people are tired of getting screwed by d3micrars, and lied too. We are tired of accepting a federal government of agencies that operates as a separate country, within a country. Why wasn’t‘ anyone in the second most corrupt administration indicted prior the rigged elections, that gave us this new illegal treasonous government? We only want fair elections again, the con-job is over then entire planet knows the elections were rigged. Biden’s illegal open borders is an act if murder of our people, treason, and deadly risks to our nation from foreign enemies, but honestly the human scum that claims they protect democracy, do not give a crap. The invasion guarantee an illegal government under an evil political party holding the majority who hates America can through rigged elections enslave our people forever.

My worry is, they will CHEAT – CHEAT – CHEAT! We have to be very vigilant in any election, from now on. They learned, from the Trump/Clinton election, that they needed to be smarter this time, and they succeeded! But, my question is, how do we find out how they are doing it, and stop it before they can succeed? We definitely need VOTER ID!!! Right now, they are importing VOTES, from Mexico, and OTHER countries, to try and keep their hold on AMERICA!! It is their intent to DESTROY our beloved country!!! WE have SCUM in our government now. Trump was on the right track. He was able to expose some, and wake up some Americans, but he got cheated out of being able to carry out any plans he might have had to improve things.
Now, the brainwashing of our children is finally being exposed, and they are fully intent upon totally wiping out all shreds of AMERICAN PATRIOTISM in this upcoming generation. If we don’t stop this, we are DOOMED!!!
I believe time is running out for America.

Well, I’m quite sure Mr. Bannon holds Congress’s jackass Committee in contempt, as well. And so do I along with millions of alienated Americans. Let’s Go Branden!
