    Bannon Makes Major Statement During Trial That Triggers Prosecution

    Published on

    Steve Bannon is on trial for two counts of contempt of Congress for failing to respond to a subpoena issued on January 6 by a US House Committee. His trial began on Monday, and events are already moving in a manner that many court observers would not anticipate; nevertheless, Bannon’s admirers are probably not shocked that the leader of the MAGA movement has the court scrambling as he goes “full Irish” on the proceedings.

    Bannon, a former key counselor to President Donald J. Trump, has been in the public eye for years, having sparked a populist movement in the United States that helped propel Trump to the presidency. Bannon is the host of the enormously popular War Room show and podcast on Real America’s Voice, where he frequently disputes the validity of Joe Biden’s White House position.

    Bannon is the administration’s number one antagonist, thus there is little doubt that Bannon’s show trial is political.

    “Bannon’s defense tells a federal court that his January 6 contempt of Congress charge was solely political, and prosecutors claim the Trump strategist believes he is ‘beyond the law’ as his trial begins,” independent media reported on the second day of Bannon’s trial.

    Bannon’s attorney, Evan Corcoran, contended that his client did not disregard the subpoena; he is being accused of evasion. However, Bannon’s team was still in discussions with the Jan. 6 committee, which surprised many.

    The most important thing to understand is that the US House does not even have the authority to file criminal charges.

    “No one ignored the subpoena,” stated Corcoran. “It’s called negotiation, it’s called accommodation … that’s not an excuse”.

    ‘It wasn’t an accident. It wasn’t a mistake. It was a decision. It was a choice,’ stated US Attorney Vaughn. ‘He just decided not to follow the rules’

    “Corcoran maintained that the case originated from a politically heated Congress.” Corcoran stated, “Politics is the lifeblood of the House of Representatives.” The House voted 229-202 in October to hold Bannon in contempt and submit the case to the Justice Department, mostly along party lines, according to The Daily Mail.

    Therefore, the Justice Department elected to proceed with the accusations, demonstrating once again that the trial was political.

    Corcoran asked the jurors to consider: ‘My single request for you is to think about it and ask yourself: Is this piece of evidence affected by politics?’

    Turning back to the subpoena, Corcoran pointed to communications between the select committee’s chief counsel, Kristin Amerling, and Bannon’s lawyer Robert Costello.

    ‘The evidence will show direct engagement between the committee staff member and Bannon’s attorney, Corcoran said. CONTINUE READING…
