Jan. 6 committee, DOJ make Steve Bannon a martyr

Oct. 21, 2022, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the sentencing of Steve Bannon for failing to comply with a Congressional subpoena:

“Today’s sentencing of Steven Bannon to four months in federal prison for a nothing process crime in a last-ditch attempt by the Jan. 6 committee to show it has relevance is pathetic and will make Mr. Bannon a martyr. Mr. Bannon, who offered to testify before the committee, after courts rejected his executive privilege claim, was then never allowed to testify as the Justice Department proceeded with the prosecution. It is obvious that House Democrats never cared about what Mr. Bannon had to say, and were more interested in triggering nothing process crimes.

“Now, they are visibly attempting the same garbage with a last-minute subpoena of former President Donald Trump, as their committee comes to a close. If Nancy Pelosi wants to ensure that Donald Trump becomes president on Jan. 20, 2025 at noon, she will proceed with this martyr-making tactic. It is not hard to predict that Trump will simply say, ‘Bring it on, Nancy!'”
