Steve Bannon has been sentenced to four months in prison and a $6500 fine in his contempt of Congress case.

The sentence is pending appeal.

So if Bannon can continue to drag this out for another 2.5 years, he may be banking on another Presidential pardon to save him from prison.

We're just going to have to leave America, and find some other land where we can settle with less of a fight, if we do not succeed in throwing that illegal and unconstitutional junta called "Congress" off our backs.


and where would you go, russia? and wtf? unconstitutional? in what universe do you come from because im quite sure Congress is definitely in the Constitution, the first article in fact, where it says "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.". just because you dont like something doesn't make it unconstitutional.

Bannon Is 1st Person Sentenced for Contempt of Congress in Decades; Vows Payback
'Merrick Garland will end up being the first attorney general that's brought up on charges of impeachment, and he will be removed from office...'


Source.



(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) Steve Bannon, a one-time Trump campaign adviser and MAGA impressario, defiantly pledged to help corrupt Attorney General Merrick Garland make history after himself becoming the first person to be convicted and sentenced for contempt of Congress since the early 1980s.


Saving democracy eh.

IF, Bannon will go to one of those candy ass federal facilities where they send the big coke dealers. They have a swimming pool, vollyball courts, internet, putting greens and catered meals. He will probably be able to streme his show from there.

All of the following have been found in contempt of congress and refused to answer congressional subpoenas for documents and served no jail time:

Henry Kissinger
Janet Reno
Harriet Miers
Joshua Bolton
Eric Holder
Lois Lerner
Bryan Pagliano
Bill Barr
Chad Wolf

If you defend Bannon going to jail you are in favor of a political witch hunt that only prosecuted Conservatives but let’s off the leftists for the same crime. Remember that but then again the left doesn’t care at all about “equal justice under the law”

What can I say, most of the woke idiots bypass or fell asleep during history class, either that or they do not bother to google history at all.

That is the states of affairs within our young population this days.

This will be super-fodder for the Democrat MSM up to Nov 8th. Great deflective qualities in a story like this 🤣🤣

Well a quick search shows the last two did not face the same consequences because for Wolf the WH under Trump stated they would not bring criminal charges against him and in Barr’s case congress only had the power to charge him if they at the time impeaching Trump. They were not, therefore they had no authority to do so. I'll find the others and get back to you.

ETA: Pagliano-Congress voted and did not refer him for criminal charges. Lerner- the DOJ found she did not waive her rights. Holder-Claimed executive privilege and his own department did not charge him.

As a follow up to this news, the J6 Committee has just formally subpoenaed Trump to appear before them on November 14th. He has until November 4th to hand over requested documents.

If I had to lean on only precedent: and Janet Reno was either the
AG or even a former, the Don should tell them to pound sand.
I'm also quite intrigued by the deadline. Two days before the
Midterms we arrest a former President for being a conservative.
I haven't heard him charged with any crime since he started campaigning.

PS this kind of behavior should come not with popcorn...
but a good-sized bunch of bananas. HEADS UP

This reads like a NY Times article. Seriously. I like the way they also state that if he is going to plead the fifth to let them know immediately. Why?

I truly hopes he shows up and simply pleads the fifth. If he does he will be next President of the United States. This is all going to backfire on them.

Amazing how this all lines up with mid-terms....
