From the cited article...

..."And that's when we really start to deconstruct the administrative state," Bannon continued. ... Starting with the FBI and the Justice Department."...

I wonder how much of a coincidence it is, that Mr Bannon would start the "deconstruction" with two areas of government that would hold his "storm troopers" responsible for any illegal acts they might perform.

The gray area is wide ...

It crosses that line somewhere other than bloviating on a radio/TV show I'd guess.

I'm not trying to support Bannon here at all, but the thread title is asking why he's not behind bars. Protected speech isn't required to be in good taste.
