United States. Steve Bannon has been charged with failing to testify in Congress

United States.  Steve Bannon has been charged with failing to testify in Congress

  • According to a press release from the Ministry of Justice, Bonan was charged with two counts: refusing to testify before a panel and refusing to submit the required documents. An arrest warrant will be issued for the politician
  • If convicted by a court, he could face between one month and one year in prison
  • – From the first day I took office, I assured the judiciary that we would show Americans in word and deed that they were bound by the rule of law (…). The head of the department, Attorney General Merrick Garland, said

The charges against Trump’s former adviser were sought by Congress in October after Banon boycotted a court summons to appear before a commission investigating the circumstances of the January 6 attack on Capitol.

A former ally of the president who served as “White House chief strategist” at the beginning of Trump’s term – but was fired a few months later – said he could not testify because Trump had asked him to testify. He noted that the so-called prerogative of the administration is the legal practice that allows presidents to protect the content of internal talks. Most experts, however, believe this only applies to current presidents.

Bonan is considered one of the key figures in the struggles that resulted from the Capitol storm. The day before the riots, on January 6, he announced during his podcast that “all hell will collapse” and suggested that there would be a “revolution”. On Jan. 5, Bonan also met with Republican congressmen at the Willard Hotel in Washington.

Bannon’s detention may be appropriate in the context of the Commission of Inquiry’s overhaul. Mark Meadows, the former president of the White House, followed in Friday’s footsteps and failed to appear before the panel on the same grounds as Bonan. Other former advisers to the former president, Stephen Miller and General Mike Flynn, also announced their refusal to cooperate with the commission.

– This is great news. I think this sends an important signal to other witnesses that you cannot ignore Congress. Adam Kinsinger, a Republican who was one of the members of CNN’s Commission of Inquiry, said that if you do not like it, you may think you have done nothing wrong, but you can not refuse to cooperate. The politician suggested that Meadows should also hear similar allegations. He added that so far 150 people have testified before the commission.
