Trump chief Steve Bannon charged with ‘refusing to testify in congressional riots’


Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, former adviser to President Trump, has been indicted for refusing to testify at the House Special Committee investigating the January 6th congressional riots.

The U.S. Department of Justice said it had charged Bannon on two counts of insult, including ignoring subpoenas for congressional testimony and failing to provide relevant documents.

Earlier, on September 23, the House Special Committee sent subpoenas to four close aides to former President Trump, including Bannon.

The commission suspects he may have information about a link between the White House and former Trump supporters who broke into Congress.

It’s notable that I attended a meeting to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s presidential victory the day before the congressional riot, when Bannon said “Tomorrow all hell will fall.”

In response to the investigation by the special committee, former President Trump asserts administrative privileges and is suing to block the testimony of his staff and access to documents in Congress.

If the charges against Bannon are confirmed, they could each face a sentence of one month to one year in prison.
