It's a good idea to be cautious about accepting anything we read, either from traditional MSM or from newer forms of media.

11. He physically confined staffers.

Obstructed exits. (So not obstruction of justice)

Staffers could and probably should file charges against Bannon if this report is true.

46. Welcome to DU, Not Ruth!

I'm no lawyer but I'd sure like to see one of these staffers come forward. Probably would have to resign. I wonder if he's made them all sign nondisclosure documents as a condition of employment.

I have never heard of a criminal charge called such a thing. A charge for kidnapping makes more sense.

It'll probably be obvious once someone tells me, but I don't know.

Back to the point of the thread: this is probably a quiet day with Bannon around.

http://www.vaed.uscourts.gov/

Edva = Eastern District Virginia

So I think that's what Taylor is referring to.

Maybe I need to ask why Trump hasn't resigned yet. I might just have the Midas touch.

predicts he's going to be Impeached.

"Prediction prof: Trump will be impeached"

snip//

“Taking time out of preparing to become the world’s most powerful leader, he wrote me a personal note, saying ‘Professor — Congrats — good call,’” Lichtman writes in “The Case for Impeachment,” an advance copy of which was shared with POLITICO. “What Trump overlooked, however, was my ‘next big prediction’: that, after winning the presidency, he would be impeached.”

28. So. This happened Tuesday. And here it is .

 

Friday and....Bannon is free as a bird, we haven't heard otherwise.

Why is that? If he physically restrained multiple people from leaving how is that not kidnapping? Even if they refuse to press charges it's a state crime, they can arrest him.

So why not? What fkg crime do these people have to commit before law enforcement moves it's collective ass?

The man has never been completely correct and like many fortune tellers, claims to be accurate after the fact even though he really wasn't.

38. Fun fact: When you search 'Bannon Obstruction', you get many hits for 'Small Bowel Obstruction'



When I searched for confirmation of the obstructions investigation, the only hits I get (other than bowel obstruction!) is referenced to Taylor. I hope he is right, but not getting too excited.... Logically, Bannon will be investigated too. He is the chief adviser. It's a safe guess to make.

White House issued an undated, retroactive ethics waiver for Bannon and other White House staff that does not appear to be legal. But that is more about his illegal contact with Breitbart after he took the White House job. Not sure it has anything to do with protecting him for obstruction charges. Hmmm...

53. The only thing about Bannon that I know for sure..

Is that he is a fat disgusting pig of a man.

He has no morals, and is laboring under mind boggling delusions about what is right for our country.

He has no place being part of our world. He is evil.

I hope that he drinks himself to death ASAP.

Looks like he has a head start.

And that is my positive spin on my perception of him!
