Breaking: Bannon Indicted for Contempt of Congress

Hold me closer, Tiny Hands-er.

Who know that AG Garland was breathing?

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon indicted by federal grand jury for contempt of Congress

The indictment is a first: No one has been prosecuted for contempt of Congress when executive privilege was asserted.

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon was indicted by a federal grand jury Friday, charged with contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions from the House Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

The indictment is a first. No one has ever been prosecuted before for contempt of Congress when executive privilege was asserted. The past cases involved defendants whose testimony was sought regarding their government service. Bannon, by contrast, left his White House job in 2017, well before the period of interest to the House committee.

If convicted, Bannon could face up to a year behind bars and a fine of up to $100,000.

The fact that the Justice Department was willing to charge him with criminal contempt, despite an assertion of executive privilege, may help persuade other reluctant witnesses to agree to cooperate with the committee’s investigation.

Now do Mark Meadows!

    Max 1 year/$100k fine.

    So, using the calculator in the “Convicto-Matic Conservative Criminal Correction Kit” RonCo $6.95, let’s see what he’ll get.
    (Hmm… white skin x private jet divided by Republican – did it in broad daylight)

    12 days. He’ll serve 12 days.

    Given that he’ll do a go fund me grift that’ll raise $300,000, he’ll be making $16,666 per day while on the inside. Great work, if you can get it (hint, YOU can’t).

    Oh, and he won’t spend a second in front of Congress.

    I hope he ends up sharing a cell with the Q Shaman. Between the two of them, they wear the same average number of shirts as a normal person.
