Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon is facing two charges of contempt of Congress. This is for refusing to comply with subpoenas in relation to the events that unfolded at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th of 2021.
Steve Bannon has always been the type of guy to dissent against the mainstream narrative. Many may speculate that this is more political persecution. AG Merrick Garland had this to say:
“Since my first day in office, I have promised Justice Department employees that together we would show the American people by word and deed that the department adheres to the rule of law, follows the facts and the law and pursues equal justice under the law.”
“Today’s charges reflect the department’s steadfast commitment to these principles.”
Mark Meadows, former Trump White House Chief of Staff, also told the January 6th committee to pound sand today. The DOJ is getting angry that people are not complying. Things could definitely get worse before they get better as the DOJ’s anger continues to grow.
Meadows could also be charged criminally, according to CNN. U.S. House Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted in support of Bannon recently:
“Steve Bannon did nothing wrong.”

It seems like some may have had advance notice of Bannon’s bad day:
