There’s not much you can count on in this life, but one thing you can be 100% sure of is Republicans rallying around the worst members of society. Even if it’s an unfriendly teenager who killed two people?, A colleague who is proud? harassing school shooting survivorsor the supreme court accused of attempted rape, the GOP just loves to go hit the ball for these people. So, naturally, the reason their new pet was Steve Bannon, indicted former Trump adviser who is actually still trying to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election.
After Friday’s news that a grand jury was charge Bannon for refusing to appear for removal to investigators on January 6 and for refusing to hand over the requested documents — both of which are undisputed! —Republican legislators have flown to the man’s defense, claiming, shockingly, that he was the victim of an ardent Justice Department and vowing to avenge those who wronged him .
“Now that Democrats have begun politically motivated charges of contempt of Congress, I look forward to seeing their response as we keep that energy intact as we take back the House. next year!” Reply. Lauren Boebert tweeted on Saturday, as if there’s only one thing Republicans do that isn’t “politically motivated.” “For years, Democrats have baselessly accused President Trump of ‘weaponizing’ the DOJ. In fact, it was the Left that weaponized the DOJ ALL TIME – from the fake Russia Hoax case to the Soviet-style prosecution of political opponents,” said Congressman. Elise Stefanik declare, seem to forget that Donald Trump make every effort to get the DOJ to prosecute, among others, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden. Matt Gaetz, who knows something about potential charges, tweeted the hashtag #TeamBannon along with a photo of the two of them on the tarmac near Air Force One.
Meanwhile, Representative Jim Jordan suggested that Republicans would seek retribution against Bannon if they took over the House in 2022, claiming that Biden aides could expect to receive a series of frivolous subpoenas. “Joe Biden ate [sic] Executive privileges,” Jordan wrote on Twitter. “There are many Republicans eager to hear testimony from Ron Klain and Jake Sullivan when we got the House back. Apparently, Jordan did not mention that Klain and Sullivan had no information regarding the violent attack on the Capitol that took place last January, nor did he note that Congress was actually interested in those things. What Bannon may have discussed with Trump regarding the uprising, and not legitimate government business. Bannon is considered a key witness for the January 6 selection committee because he is said to have had conversations with Trump in the weeks leading up to the Capitol attack, being present in the “war room.” of Trump allies as the uprising subsided, and told podcast listeners on January 5, “All hell will fall apart tomorrow.” In September, Bannon speak that he told Trump before the uprising that he needed to “kill [the Biden] manage in the crib early. “In short,” the House committee said in The report issued a contempt decision against him, “Mr. Bannon appears to have played a multifaceted role in the events of January 6, and the American people have a right to hear his firsthand account of his conduct. his movements.”
For his part, Trump exit a particularly insane, historically inaccurate statement on Sunday, saying, “This country has probably never done to anyone what it did to Steve Bannon and they’re finding a way, too. do it with other people.” (Those imprisoned in Japanese internment camps would probably like a word. And those enslaved too. Oh, and those who died in the process. someone publicly declared COVID-19 no big deal.)
