why is bannon not in prison

hes not complying with the jan6th committee orders.
why isnt he in prison.
its time for congress to do its job. haul his ass into prison. use inherent contempt. no more delays,no more stalling.
send us marshals to arrest him especially since he wasnt actually part of the administration. the coup attempt was 9 months ago. either haul his ass into prison or just admit that the us is done as a democracy since there seems to be no consequences for planning a violent coup

1. Bannon is supposed to appear today. Congress can take the next steps if he doesn't. n/t

3. His lawyers have already indicated he won't be complying based on Trump's executive privilege claim.

“We must accept his direction and honor his invocation of executive privilege. As such, until these issues are resolved, we are unable to respond to your request for documents and testimony,” Robert Costello, Bannon’s attorney, wrote in a letter to the committee.

He's a nasty-looking motherfucker. I can practically smell him over the internet.

9. Yup,

The process has to move along in its own way.

5. Patience, Grasshopper. First, he has to actually refuse the subpoena, if indeed one has...

actually been issued.

The, the committee has to find him in contempt, possibly even to send the whole mess over to a US attorney. Either way, the House has to file contempt charges.

Finally, after all this legal folderol, the Sergeant at Arms may haul his ass to the slam. Or may not.

The last time this actually happened was back in, I believe, 1934, so they're still kinda figuring it out themselves.

6. He has and is actively calling for an end of this Country, by force.

Sedition? Treason?

Put these traitors in prison, they acted on their threats.

10. This is easy.

Steve Bannon isn't breaking rocks in Ft Leavenworth because "America is not a racist country."

11. Why do Insurrectionists get to go on vacations and ball games before their court date

Why do they get community service for storming the capitol and being part of a mob intent on killing the speaker and v.p.?

12. He was preemptively pardoned by TFG.

So he and Stone could foment an insurrection as to return the favor.

15. The Trumpkins are rolling the dice on that.

Playing the unchallenged so-called blanket pardons card.

Just like asserting they still have executive privileges.

TFG is trying to throw everything to the super politicized SCOTUS. He feels they owe him a favor and has repeatedly said so.

17. There was no blanket pardon issued- they were for specific crimes/time periods

None of Trump’s pardons covered any crimes after January 20, 2021, and most only covered crimes up to the date they were issued in December 2020.

14. Fear.

Somehow, despite winning majorities, and despite BBB being wildly popular... EVERYONE in the political arena still fears the 30% that support TFG.

It's time to grow a pair.
