The sham Jan 6th committee voted to hold Bannon in contempt.
It is now moving to the House for a vote.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has officially announced that the full House will vote on Thursday on the contempt of Congress resolution for Steve Bannon after the Jan. 6 committee approved a contempt report this evening.
What would happen next: Following the full House vote, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to certify the report to the United States attorney for the District of Columbia. Under law, this certification then requires the United States attorney to “bring the matter before the grand jury for its action,” but the Justice Department will also make its own determinations for prosecution.
As severe as a criminal contempt referral sounds, the House’s choice to use the Justice Department may be more of a warning shot than a solution. Holding Bannon in criminal contempt through a prosecution could take years, and historically, criminal contempt cases have been derailed by appeals and acquittals.
Now, we have this.
Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined The War Room to discuss the political prosecution by the Biden administration of their political enemies.
Steve Bannon implies the vote to hold him in contempt of Congress is 'a set up' with Biden's backing | Daily Mail Online https://t.co/Vm9rCvD2wg

Gaetz told Bannon he believed they were witnessing a concerted attempt to persecute Bannon, saying it was a plot ‘stitched together’.
‘Merrick Garland’s appearance before the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow has been purposefully synced with the actions you saw in the Rules Committee today and the votes that will occur to hold you in contempt of Congress,’ Gaetz said.
That is all being stitched together.’
Gaetz said the administration was ‘trying to create a wholly-enclosed ecosystem of the political persecution in the Congress, and the enforcement tools of the Department of Justice.’
He added: ‘I have often said that one of the scariest things I have observed is that the FBI really has become the enforcement wing of the Democratic Party in a lot of circumstances.’
Gaetz also said that “Biden has gaslit the Justice Department” and is using it to take on his political enemies.
Biden called for Bannon to be prosecuted.
