    Bannon Drops Bombshell On Court Steps After Being Sentenced To Prison

    Published on

    During the defense’s arguments, attorney David Schoen stated in front of the judge, “I hope no American buys into anything (the prosecutor) just said… other than Mr. Bannon should be treated like any other citizen,” and he hoped the record would show “Bannon is above the law” rather than the opposite.

    “Any sentence of incarceration should be suspended.. and wouldn’t be appropriate,” Schoen continued.

    Schoen believed that Bannon was not “acting above the law,” since he had followed the advice of his attorney when he refused to follow the January 6 Committee’s demands.

    Furthermore, Schoen raised the issue of executive privilege, claiming that Bannon was following the precedent set by previous President Trump in asserting executive privilege, and claiming that “The [January 6] committee wouldn’t have been composed as it was, if it was interested in an investigation.”

    The Post Millenial said, “The defense later continued on to state that the prosecution was showing “zeal to make Mr. Bannon their trophy,” and that “politics has infected this process.””

    Additionally, Schoen stated that Bannon would not be saying “I’m sorry,” because he felt he was acting morally.

    At the sentencing hearing, Bannon remained silent, informing the judge that “my lawyers have spoken.”

    Judge Nichols stated that the January 6 events were “undeniably serious” and that many  “rioters planned to come to the Capitol with the express purpose of interrupting the proceedings.” before making his ruling.

    The court continued, “The January 6th committee has every right to investigate what happened that day… what can be done to prevent similar .. events from happening in the future.”

    According to Nichols, “Some of the information sought by the subpoena is information under which no conceivable claim of executive privilege could’ve been made,” in response to the defense’s assertions of executive privilege.

    “Bannon did not completely ignore the subpoena or fail to engage with the committee at all,” Nichols continued, adding it appeared that Bannon was definitely acting on the counsel of his lawyers.

    Additionally, he stated that it “cuts in Mr. Bannon’s favor” that the committee didn’t go to court to execute its subpoena.

    Nichols continued, “Respect for Congress is of course an important piece of our Constitutional system.”

    On Friday morning, Bannon addressed the gathering as he arrived at court, reminding them that  “remember, this illegitimate regime, their judgment day is on 8 November, when the Biden administration ends.”

    Before going inside the court, he added, “Thank you, and remember, take down the CCP.”

    Outside, a group of demonstrators yelled “fascist” and referred to Bannon as a “traitor.”

    Merrick B. Garland, the DOJ’s attorney general, will be indicted, impeached, and forced out of his position, Bannon announced to the throng outside the courtroom following the sentencing. Additionally, he claimed that on November 8th, if Democrats lose the midterm elections and Republicans gain control of Congress, judgment day would arrive for the fraudulent Biden administration.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    “Bannon was found guilty by a DC court in July for two counts of contempt of Congress, in regard to his refusal to comply with subpoenas from the January 6 House Committee. Bannon has plead not guilty to the charges,” the report continued.

    The Department of Justice recommended earlier this week that Bannon should serve six months in prison and pay a $200,000 fine  because Bannon’s actions were “a total disregard for government processes and the law.”

    The DOJ further cited Bannon’s referencing the January 6 committee as a “sham committee,” and trial to which he was subjected as a “show trial.” That he would be found guilty was known before the trial began..

    “Throughout the pendency of this case,” according to the Department of Justice’s sentencing memo, “the Defendant has exploited his notoriety … to display to the public the source of his bad-faith refusal to comply with the Committee’s subpoena.” CONTINUE READING…
