GOP Candidates’ Favorite Podcast Host Set to Be Held in Criminal Contempt

Bannon’s War Room Has Hosted Scores of GOP Candidates

Anti-fashion iconfar-right goon, former advisor to Trump and a fugitive Chinese billionaire, and one of the House GOP’s favorite podcast hosts is about to be served. Just a day after holding a bizarre rally in Virginia, CNN is reporting the House Select Committee investigating January 6th is moving to hold Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena.

From CNN:

The committee investigating the January 6 Capitol Hill riot announced Thursday it is moving forward to hold Trump ally Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena, as his game of chicken with the House panel now enters a new and critical phase.

“Mr. Bannon has declined to cooperate with the Select Committee and is instead hiding behind the former President’s insufficient, blanket, and vague statements regarding privileges he has purported to invoke,” Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, who chairs the committee, said in a statement on Thursday.

Bannon has hosted scores of GOP candidates and officeholders this year:


DCCC Spokesperson James Singer

“Steve Bannon is a disgraceful thug whose relevance in the GOP has been a stain on their party for years. These Republican candidates and officeholders’ decision to join his podcast before Bannon’s refusal to comply with a subpoena called into question their judgment and values — will defying law and order do the trick? Doubtful.”
