Eric Holder was held in contempt of congress for refusing to produce documents and testimony in the Fast-n-Furious investigation, and the DOJ did nothing.  IRS official Lois Lerner was held in contempt of congress for failure to produce documents and give testimony in the IRS investigation, and the DOJ did nothing.

[In the background of this DOJ story today, it is important to highlight the FBI has given the New York Times evidence extracted from the phone of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe.  Remember, O’Keefe is suing the New York Times. The FBI raided O’Keefe on behalf of their ideological allies in the New York Times.]

Today, AG Merrick Garland is using a fully weaponized Justice Department to purposefully, intentionally and willfully target the political opposition of the Biden administration.  Worse still, the entire media apparatus knows this purpose and yet denies it.   Our nation is in a very precarious place.

WASHINGTON DC – Stephen K. Bannon was indicted today by a federal grand jury on two counts of contempt of Congress stemming from his failure to comply with a subpoena issued by the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.

Bannon, 67, is charged with one contempt count involving his refusal to appear for a deposition and another involving his refusal to produce documents, despite a subpoena from the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol. An arraignment date has not yet been set in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

“Since my first day in office, I have promised Justice Department employees that together we would show the American people by word and deed that the department adheres to the rule of law, follows the facts and the law and pursues equal justice under the law,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “Today’s charges reflect the department’s steadfast commitment to these principles.”

“As detailed in the indictment, on Sept. 23, 2021, the Select Committee issued a subpoena to Mr. Bannon,” said U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves for the District of Columbia. “The subpoena required him to appear and produce documents to the Select Committee, and to appear for a deposition before the Select Committee. According to the indictment, Mr. Bannon refused to appear to give testimony as required by subpoena and refused to produce documents in compliance with a subpoena.”

In its subpoena, the Select Committee said it had reason to believe that Bannon had information relevant to understanding events related to Jan. 6. Bannon, formerly a Chief Strategist and Counselor to the President, has been a private citizen since departing the White House in 2017.

Each count of contempt of Congress carries a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of one year in jail, as well as a fine of $100 to $1,000. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. (read more)
