Steve Bannon, a prominent podcaster and former Trump adviser, stated on his Friday episode that top Justice Department and FBI personnel could face “criminal charges.”
Bannon’s remarks followed the first prime-time hearings of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6 Committee, which he criticized for spreading lies and misinformation.
Bannon stated, “I think we’re going to get criminal charges against [FBI Director Christopher] Wray and [U.S. Attorney General Merrick] Garland and all of those hacks over there,”
“They’re inundated with whistleblowers from the FBI. Patriots, hard-working patriots are blowing these guys up,” he added. There are numerous whistleblowers. Thousands. Let me emphasize.. on the malevolence and politicization of the FBI, the American Gestapo.
“I don’t care if the FBI doesn’t like it. You’re a Gestapo, you’re an American Gestapo. You’re going to be taken apart brick by brick. Whether we need a federal agency like that, that’s for people to decide. But you are going to be deconstructed. Because the rot that you have, and we should have done it after 9-11, let’s be honest,” he said.
