Not Above the Law: Hold Steve Bannon in contempt

U.S. House

This is huge: the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection has recommended that Steve Bannon be held in criminal contempt.

Bannon, who could know firsthand just how involved Trump was in the deadly attack, ignored a subpoena from the Committee and refused to testify. Now, the full U.S. House will vote on Bannon’s fate -- and if these members of Congress side with the Committee, Bannon could face a massive fine or even jail time.

You may remember Steve Bannon as Trump’s right-hand man during and after the 2016 election. He’s one of the co-founders of Breitbart, a far-right “news” website infamous for spreading dangerous disinformation -- and he has repeatedly been condemned for his white supremacist ideology.

Bannon’s sworn testimony could be game-changing -- he reportedly met with Trump last December and urged him to focus his efforts to overturn the 2020 election on January 6th. Plus, on January 5th, Bannon forebodingly said on his podcast: “all hell is going to break loose tomorrow.” [1]

But if the House lets Bannon put himself above the law and ignore subpoenas, we may never know what role he and Trump played in the insurrection.

We deserve the truth. We deserve to know everything that happened during and leading up to that horrific day -- and every person who helped incite or coordinate the attack must be held accountable.

If you agree that the House should vote to hold Bannon in criminal contempt, sending a strong message to anyone who may try to interfere with this investigation -- add your name.

Steve Bannon -- ex-President Trump’s former advisor who may have insider intel about the January 6th insurrection -- refused to testify before the House Select Committee investigating the deadly attack. In response, the Committee voted to recommend that Bannon be held in criminal contempt.

Bannon and Trump are not above the law -- and the American people deserve the truth about the role they played in this horrific incident. When the full U.S. House takes up Bannon’s contempt charge, we urge every congressperson to follow the Committee’s lead and vote YES.
