Steve Bannon Gets HUGE News After Being Forced To Report To Prison

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) of the United States is pleading with House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) to revoke the subpoena issued to former White House strategist Steve Bannon on January 6 and to reject the committee’s findings.

Steve Bannon’s felony conviction was upheld in May by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, maintaining the 2022 decision that found the former Trump adviser guilty of contempt of Congress. Judge Carl Nichols, who was chosen by the former president Donald Trump, revoked Bannon’s bail on Thursday, ruling that the prior justifications for postponing his sentencing were no longer acceptable. As a result, Bannon is now scheduled to surrender to prison by July 1.

Massie urged Speaker Johnson to act in a post on X, saying, “Why don’t we rescind the Congressional subpoena for Steve Bannon and officially repudiate the J6 committee by a vote of Congress?”

Following legal counsel, Bannon disregarded a subpoena issued by Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 committee, leading to his eventual conviction for contempt of Congress.

When former House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) forbade then House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) from appointing Republican members, the committee broke with decades of congressional tradition. All congressional committees let the opposition party to choose its own members, except the January 6 committee.

Rather of according to protocol, Pelosi chose Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, who are both out of Congress and in favor of President Biden’s reelection. In a primary contest, Kinzinger resigned rather than suffer the same fate as Cheney, who was destroyed.

The committee then employed a Hollywood producer to edit selected film that it had utilized to support the committee’s fictitious “insurrection” narrative during primetime hearings. Numerous anti-Trump partisans provided the committee with unconfirmed testimony, including Cassidy Hutchinson, a former Trump assistant who presented an odd tale about Trump taking the wheel from Secret Service agents while the January 6 protests were taking place. Republicans in the House are looking into her allegations of perjury, and Secret Service agents have refuted her statements.

There were nine Republicans in the House who voted to find Bannon in contempt of Congress. All of them have been voted out or retired, with the exception of Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Nancy Mace (R-SC).
