In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times and Crossroads’ Joshua Phillips, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon explained what he believed is the only fight that matters as the country is convulsed by election fraud and President Trump may be in his final days in the White House.
You don’t have to buy the fact that the election was stolen, but you should see that there is lots of evidence and this (charges of election fraud) is not baseless…and has to be adjudicated.
Joshua asked Bannon about the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate election fraud in the 2020 election. Bannon said:
We need a special prosecutor specifically for election fraud and voter fraud. Not that this can’t get worked out… in President Trump’s favor by the 20th.
But even if President Trump prevails, a special prosecutor would have unique and powerful tools to get to the bottom of the election fraud that was used during the 2020 election. He explained that a special prosecutor can investigate independently and has powers subpoena, indict, and impanel grand juries:
But…you need a real investigative apparatus with subpoena power, the power to indict, an unlimited budget, power to empanel a grand jury to go through these states. Bannon recommended Ken Starr, the former special prosecutor during the Clinton impeachment, and someone who is deeply knowledgeable in election law.
Bannon also argued the need for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the Biden family and their ties to the Chinese Communist Party. He emphasized that “You need someone that is beyond the reach of Biden’s Justice Department.”
Pointing to Attorney General William Barr as an obstacle to the investigation into the Biden family, Bannon said, “We called for Barr to be fired. Barr was fired.” Officially, Barr resigned and will depart the DOJ on December 23.
Bannon explained what he and many see as Barr’s failure to “set the record straight” on the Biden family.
“I thought Barr did a terrible job. Made a couple of nice speeches. He clearly suppressed, admittedly suppressed, information about the CCP and the Biden family for many months. They have had the hard drive from hell for a year… and no movement done on it. Barr needs to be investigated about why the hard drive from hell.
He allowed Joe Biden on the debate stage, the second debate, Biden looks the audience in the eye and says,”My son has done nothing wrong, he’s never taken a penny from overseas, he has no relationships. Barr needed to tell the American people that is not true.
Bannon insisted that a special counsel must be charged with investigating the Biden family and their connection with the Chinese. Bannon explained the real threat to America saying that “the greatest existential threat to America is the CCP, the Chinese Communists, not Russia.”
Emphasizing the need to expose the failures of the US intelligence community, formerly headed by John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, and others, Bannon explained the danger of their failures. For the last 20 years, the intelligence community has misled the American people, and gotten crisis after crisis wrong, from 9/11 to weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, to Russia Collusion in 2016. At the same time, they have completely missed or worse, aided and abetted the rise of Communist China. Bannon warned: “We are not focused on China enough.”
