Trump Sides with Steve Bannon as Corrupt Democrats Try to Jail Bannon for ‘Contempt of Congress’
The Democrats are desperate to jail former Trump advisor Steve Bannon because he has refused to abide by their subpoena to testify at their fake “Jan 6” investigation committee.
Because Bannon won’t show to their committee hearing, they are attempting to bring him up on charges of contempt of Congress.
But Trump is standing up for his former advisor.
“This Country has perhaps never done to anyone what they have done to Steve Bannon and they are looking to do it to others, also,” the former president said, according to Just the News.
Trump went on saying that members of his former administration are being treated more harshly than those of any other administration.
“If they would be so tough with China, Russia, and the world, who no longer respects us, maybe our Country would not be failing at a level at which we have never seen before,” he said.
“We never talk about making our Country great, and it is now heading in an unthinkable direction with the Afghanistan withdrawal, open Borders, Inflation, Woke everything, and so much more. The USA is a radicalized mess!” Trump said.
As CNN reported, Bannon was cited with contempt on Friday:
Attorney General Merrick Garland had been under tremendous political pressure to indict Bannon since the House referred the Trump ally to the Justice Department for contempt on October 21.
“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,” Garland said in a statement Friday. “Today’s charges reflect the Department’s steadfast commitment to these principles.”
Bannon, 67, was charged with one count related to his refusal to appear for a deposition and another related to his refusal to produce documents. Each count carries a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of one year in jail, the Justice Department said.
