Bannon found guilty of contempt of Congress charges, faces jail time, fine

It apparently only took three hours of deliberation to find former Trump adviser Steve Bannon guilty of two contempt of Congress charges he faced after defying congressional subpoenas with regard to the Jan. 6 House select committee.

According to the Washington Examiner, Bannon vowed to fight back against the charges. But reportedly, that’s not how his case went, whatsoever. “When time came for the trial, he ultimately opted not to testify or call on any witnesses in his defense,” the Examiner added.

Bannon addressed the media at the conclusion of the short trial, which was the first one of its kind since 1983.

“I want to thank the jury for whatever they did, the judge, particularly the court administration here,” Bannon said after the trial. “I only have one disappointment, and that is the gutless members of that show trial committee — the J6 committee that didn’t have the guts to come down here and testify.”

According to court observers, Bannon was reportedly so unfazed by the jury’s decision that he was actually smiling in the courtroom as the guilty charges were read off.

David Schoen, Bannon’s high-powered lawyer, said the former Trump adviser has a “bulletproof appeal.”

Bannon is set to learn his fate at a sentencing hearing on Oct. 21. Bannon was one of four former Trump advisers held in contempt of Congress for not complying with congressional subpoenas.

The words come just a week after California Democratic Rep. Judy Chu introduced the Women’s Health Protection Act to protect abortion access. The move marked a strong sign that Democrats won’t stop pressing abortion legislation.
In contrast, 13 states have trigger laws that further limited abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Many other conservative states have also added new laws or are in the process of doing so as laws concerning abortion have been returned to individual states.
“Among those who said he shouldn’t run, the most common reason given was that ‘he’s a bad president’ (45%), followed by ‘he’s too old’ (30%), and ‘it’s time for a change’ (26%),” Mediaite reported.
“Just 28% either strongly or somewhat approve of his handling of inflation, while 32% approve of his handling of the economy overall,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
In every meaningful respect, AMP/AJP is nothing more than a disguised continuance of IAP/AMS — stripped of the burden of the Boim Judgement and the ignominy of having been found liable for aiding and abetting the murder of an American teenager,” a 2017 lawsuit
“AMP/AJP are the alter egos and successors of IAP/AMS, and are therefore liable for the unpaid portion of the Boim Judgement,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
The case involved the murder of David Boim, who was 17 when shot by members of Hamas in the West Bank in 1996.

It surely is the most crooked and we must be sure it ends in 2024 or America as we have known and lived it will be completely gone. Biden is so ridiculous it is frightening. Biden must be gone anyway possible.

And the Kangaroo Court Show trial continues. They will ruin anyone they have to, in order to hold onto as much power as possible…. Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and her husband, Paul, continue to make as much money as possible from their insider trading activity. The corruption in the Democratic Party knows of no line that cannot be crossed, at the expense of the American people. Congress and the Senate are supposed to work for ALL the American people. The time and money spent on this kangaroo court is appalling, in light of some of the other problems that our country is facing, with out-of- control inflation, Sky High gas prices, A border crisis like we have not seen before, crime that has escalating out of control across America and an economy that has done an about face from 24 months ago. With all these problems, our government is more concerned with keeping the existing party in power instead of doing anything to help the American people. Their jobs are to serve the American People. Instead, it appears that they are doing nothing more than serving their own interests, wants and desires. They all need to be executed for treason….
