Steve Bannon lashed out at the House January 6 committee hours after being found guilty of contempt of Congress on Friday.
Speaking to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Bannon warned committee staffers that Republicans would have their own committee if they returned to power.
“We have to have a real January 6 committee, including to get to the staffers now and see about the lies and misrepresentations they put on the national television to defame people,” Bannon said…
Bannon said a Republican January 6 committee would look at “intelligence failures, FBI involvement, DHS involvement, the intelligence services, what happened to the Pentagon and the National Guard…”
As for Bannon’s blather … regardless of many displays of the facts he denies … the True Believers in Republican ranks who think the sun shines out Trump’s butt will believe anything they are told by their Fearless Leaders. NO CHANGE THERE.
The electoral, political and ethical struggle will take all the courage and devotion to truth that Democrats can muster. A wish that applies equally to the numbers who find no need or interest in either category of the 2-party lockstep surrounding political discourse in the patriot game. Still…a good time to join hands.
