Steve Bannon Indicted for Ignoring Select Committee Subpoena

Congressional subpoenas are far too often regarded as a joke.

This goes back decades, with subpoenas being ignored on both sides of the aisle in controversial investigations.

Rarely are the subpoenas enforced with political figures are involved, but that just changed rather dramatically.

Indict Him

With Congress now investigating the Trump administration, of course, the rules will now be enforced.

To that point, after former Trump adviser Steve Bannon failed to adhere to a subpoena issued by the Select Committee on January 6, Democrats pursued an indictment, which was granted by Attorney General Merrick Garland.

But this is where it gets really interesting.

In granting the indictment, Garland stated, “Since my first day in office, I have promised Justice Department employees that together we would show the American people by word and deed that the Department adheres to the rule of law, follows the facts and the law, and pursues equal justice under the law.

“Today’s charges reflect the Department’s steadfast commitment to these principles.”

The rule of law… that is a complete and utter joke.

This administration only enforces the laws it wants to because if it enforced them all, McCabe would be getting prosecuted for lying to the FBI (instead, he had his pension restored) and our immigration laws would be enforced rather than ignored.

Even with Garland’s statement, however, I doubt much will come of the indictment.

It has been about four decades since anyone served time over a congressional subpoena, so this looks more like a publicity stunt than anything else, but time will tell.

  1. GARLAND is a complete traitor! He pushes prosecution of parents angry about having their children BRAINWASHED by CRT ACTIVISTS, BUT ALLOWS BLM AND ANTIFA TO RIOT, COMMIT ARSON AND LOOTING, AND IS LEADING EFFORTS TO SPY ON “AMERICA FIRST” SUPPORTERS! Then we find out his son is making a fortune selling CRT training materials to public schools! Young people, prior to college, do not need to be taught THEORIES! But these materials treat CRT as fact, and offers no opposing “theories”! It is BRAINWASHING, PURE AND SIMPLE, AND IS DESIGNED TO DEMORALIZE ALL WHITE CHILDREN! MARTIN LUTHER KING PUSHED FOR “EQUALITY” PEOPLE, NOT HATRED! THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN AMERICA ARE NOT THE PROPERTY OF THE STATE! THAT IS ONLY IN CHINA!

  2. I am sure I read that former AG Eric Holder is in contempt of Congress to this day. He was called to testify on a hearing into the famous “Fast and Furious” gun sale action to drug cartels with the goal of tracing the guns to the head criminals. One such gun was used to kill a guard at the border between Mexico and the United States. Correct me if I am wrong.

  3. Need to subpoena Pelosi for not bringing in the National Guard, she wanted January 6 to happen. So she could go after Trump. She set up the FBI crowd pushers to do their thing. She is the ring leader trying to keep her distance.

  4. It’s time for somebody to set up a go fund me page, just in case he needs it, I, for one, will throw in a few bucks to help Steve out !!!! We have got to put a stop to these Liberal Criminals, PERIOD !!! The 2022 elections can’t get here soon enough !! THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT CRIMINALS MUST BE STOPPED, NOW !!!! F**K JOE BIDEN, F**K CONGRESS, F**K LIBERALS, and F**K YOU IF YOU GO ALONG WITH THEM !!! THE LIBERAL CORRUPTION MUST END, NOW !!!

  5. Yes Congress needs to go after Mayor Bowser, Pelosi and the DC Police who lied at the hearing I saw televised. The cowards pretending (claiming to be hurt, I believe one mentioned PTSD)to watch an “ Insurrection”. Force the truth about Antifia and maybe even BLM being there.

  6. I don’t just want to see MTGreene & Louie Gohmert at the prison although I am so thankful for them I want to see the whole damn Republican Party leaders outside that door demanding their rights and to be able to hear the stories of the black mold, no water available, no toilet paper and 23 hrs at a time of solitary confinement. Some of these people did not even go into the Capitol. Pelosi set this up. YOU CAN BET IF THOSE WERE DEMOCRATS IN THERE, WE WOULD SEE CITIES BURNED TO THE GROUND, INNOCENTS MURDERED and the prisoners would be out in two days! I would donate to a fund for Bannon.

  7. Actually this is a good thing, enforce the law, because when Trump returns to the WH, many democrats and their minions will face “equal justice under law”. Democrat communists hope to sweep the 2022 elections, and if they do, America can expect to see U.N. “peacekeeping” forces, which will be Chinese Military, on American soil…. in another democrat communist violation of the U. S. Constitution.

  8. we need biden indited with all those commies in the house of nonrepresenatives! they dont represent the people;congress needs to go too!!

  9. I am so happy to hers that the DOJ is following the law, you the having the FBI investigate the parents who are “home grow terrorists” because they disapprove of the garbage be taught to their children, but I don’t hear of any investigations into the riots that have been held around the country nor do you read about any infestations into the Clintons and other powerful democrats some following the law

  10. Too bad Garland and his son couldn’t have a major accident… permanent ending of the problem.
