Glenn Kirschner: Congress Should Refer Bannon for Criminal Contempt AND Trump for a Contempt Conspiracy Investigation


Trump and his cronies, enablers etc need to be held to account in a court of law. Bannon should be a prime target

October 17,2021

Congress will vote on whether to hold Steve Bannon in contempt and refer him to the Department of Justice for prosecution. When prosecutors investigate and indict cases in the grand jury, they ALWAYS investigate the motive for the crime. Donald Trump pardoned Steve Bannon for stealing money from Trump’s base via his bogus “We Build the Wall” foundation. Apparently in return for that invaluable favor, Bannon refused to testify before Congress on a topic that almost certainly would have incriminated Trump. This motive is something that must be fully presented to the grand jury as part of the indictment of Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress. This video explores why the numbers 194, 70 and 1 are now relevant to the investigation and prosecution of Steve Bannon.
