Bannon’s punishment for ignoring subpoenas to appear before the January 6 kangaroo court. 

The official crime: Contempt of Congress. 

Bannon was convicted in July on two counts. Prosecutors had wanted a six month prison sentence and a $200,000 fine. 

Is the Jan. 6 committee a sham?

“I respect the judge, the sentence he came down with today is his decision. I’ve been totally respectful during this entire process on the legal side,” Bannon told media gathered outside the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

Bannon plans to appeal.

“On Nov. 8th, there’s going to have judgment on the illegitimate Biden regime … and quite frankly, Nancy Pelosi and the entire committee,” he added. “The Biden administration ends on the evening of the 8th of November…Merrick Garland will end up being the first attorney general that’s brought up on charges of impeachment and he’ll be removed from office.”

It’s a political hit job. President Biden has weaponized the Justice Dept. to take out his political enemies. That’s why FBI agents are raiding the homes of pro-lifers, parents with concerns about their local school boards, and Trump supporters. 

Consider this – a number of Obama administration officials were held in contempt – but not a one went to jail. Attorney General Eric Holder. IRS Director Lois Lerner. 

Notice the double standard?

Quite frankly, the American people should be holding Congress with contempt.
