Question

Can someone PLEASE explain to me what is taking so long for the Justice Department to charge Steve the Scruff Bannon? He is openly in contempt of Congress and has been referred for criminal charges. What is taking so damn long?
Thanks

... his lawyers have filed papers/challenges that put everything on hold? Just guessing. That's the way they do it, sometimes. I do think the charges and arrest should happen now, though...

No one here knows, and frankly, I don't think the vocal complaints want him to testify. They want him in jail, that's it.

Do we really believe he is going to say that trump had a meeting with racist militia groups on January 5th instructing each on where their rube members should breach the Capitol?

I suspect trump thought about it, though.
