Steve Bannon, a former strategist and staunch ally to former President Trump, has responded to the indictment he’s facing in New York stemming from the federal charges he faced from a fraud scheme.
Bannon is expected to turn himself into authorities this week after being indicted on state-level charges stemming from his 2020 scheme where he allegedly defrauded Trump supporters who donated funds to crowdsource a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
He was accused of stealing $1 million to pay an alleged co-conspirator and hundreds of thousands in personal expenses.
According to The Daily Wire:
“Just days after being swatted three different times by deranged thugs from New York City inspired by the Biden Administration to assassinate me by police, the Soros-backed DA has now decided to pursue phony charges against me 60 days before the midterm election because [his show] is the major source of the MAGA grassroots movement,” Bannon claimed. “The SDNY did the exact same thing in August 2020 to try to take me out of the election. It didn’t work then, it certainly won’t work now. This is nothing more than a partisan political weaponization of the criminal justice system.”
“They are coming after all of us, not only President Trump and myself,” he concluded. “I am never going to stop fighting. In fact, I have not yet begun to fight. They will have to kill me first.”
In 2021, Bannon received a pardon from former President Donald Trump in the federal case before the trial had a chance to conclude.
The case which was initially started by New York District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. is expected to be continued by anti-Trump Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg (D).
The fresh indictment that facing Bannon comes after he was found guilty of one count of contempt of Congress for refusing to appear for a deposition and another involving his refusal to produce documents to the January 6th House Select Committee. Each count carries a maximum of 30 days in jail and fines ranging from $100 to $100,000.
“The subpoena to Stephen Bannon was not an invitation that could be rejected or ignored,” said Matthew M. Graves, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. “Mr. Bannon had an obligation to appear before the House Select Committee to give testimony and provide documents. His refusal to do so was deliberate and now a jury has found that he must pay the consequences.”
This is great. We have a disfunctional central government jammed up by it’s unlawful and clearly not in following with our Nation’s U S Constitutional requirments. These folks in DC are corrupt beyond our wildest dreams. They can lie, cheat steal, murder and run amuck without any control at all from the people. This nation is on the fast track Roman death road. May God have mercy on us.
What sorry-ass Americans these democrat pols have become!
How could the government find him ” in contempt of congress” ? tens of millions of people in this country have the same opinion of congress. This whole j6 committee has been nothing but a political show, and the longer it drags on the more it looks like a joke being played on the American people.
I continue to say that the more rope they can hang themselves with the better. This is the kind of BS that can wake up a sheep or two. I agree with Rev J. There has been an evil intention to tear this country apart and rebuild it so that we are slaves, at least the few that are left after the depopulation agenda is completed. By comparison to other civilizations we are still relatively young. The puppet masters are just as evil as Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini to name a few. I am a Christian and have a firm faith in God. I pray to God everyday and ask Him to continue to bless this country that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles.
Thru all things Christ strengthens me!
We are seeing a very sad chapter in history. When the right are suddenly wrong and the wrong are suddenly right. The end of days? Could be…..if I were them, I would be watching my P’s and Q’s where God is concerned. Repent!!!
& homes of 35 Trump officials also raided in one day
