Here’s what’s happening…
Close ally of former President Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, was taken into custody by federal authorities after Bannon was accused of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena by the House committee who was tasked with investigating the January 6th Capitol protest.
According to Yahoo, Bannon was arrested early Monday morning and is expected to be in court later today. Bannon was indicted on two counts of criminal contempt after he refused to appear in front of Congress to testify and also refused to provide documents which was requested by the Jan 6 Congressional Committee.
What’s worse is former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows could also soon be taken into custody for defying his own subpoena which was issued by the Jan 6 Congressional Committee as well.
Just before turning himself into federal authorities, Bannon told his supporters, “Is this us? I just want to say tell everybody it’s livestreamed on GETTR right now, everybody is watching in The War Room. We’re here today. I don’t want anybody to take their eye off the ball of what we do everyday. We have Hispanics coming on our side. African-Americans coming on our side. We’re taking down the Biden regime. Every day we need to focus, you got Raheem Kassam, you got Dr. Peter Navarro, Captain Bannon. You’re going to have Boris Epshtein the whole show. We got polling out, economic data out, everything. I want you guys to stay focused and stay on message.”
