Thursday, December 02, 2021

Steve Bannon isn't just trying to troll the Biden administration and the Justice Department. He's creating a playbook for other resistant witnesses to the Jan. 6 probe.

"He's almost an anarchist," said Jennifer Rodgers, a former Manhattan federal prosecutor"

He wants to try his case in the public sphere just like his orange daddy.

More likely they're trying to cut a deal with him.

Democrats have failed America.

That's stronger than I would put it. I would let them off the hook a little and refer to them as being pragmatic.

I heard Bannon, sweating like a pig and his face red with anger, say (paraphrasing) "they don't know who they're messing with" which is usually a final declaration of false bravado, i.e. gangster style.

Since he can't seem to keep his mouth shut under duress, I think it's more likely the Democrats are going to give him enough rope to hang himself.

He must be a nightmare of a client for his attorney.

Twin.

I appreciate your eternal optimism.

Obviously I have become much more cynical in the past 4 years.

"He's almost an anarchist"

At this point, he's just a vandal: destroying it for the sake of watching it be destroyed.

In Bizarro World, aka Htrae, you are Jeffy.

Thanks, CLOWN

Somebody has to be the counterweight.

I just finished reading the oral arguments Trump's attorneys made in his executive privilege appeal. It's very long but worth a read when you get the time.

It's a consensus of opinion that Trump's lawyers had no case that would override Biden's waiver. In fact, they sort of got their ass whipped by all three judges on the panel.

I think Bannon's whole case for Contempt of Court rested on Trump winning this appeal. He didn't. He lost big time.

Here's the link.

Time to throw stinky Steve in prison and let him know his new cell mate Bubba has a date with his --------. Let's see him tough talk his way out of that one.

Let's just say Bannon has plenty to bellow about. He's one step closer to that jail cell than he was a week ago.

"and being able to point at the carnage and yell at the top of his lungs, "I DID THAT!""

Exactly.

As if that's...you know...an actual achievement.

Let's try to keep our eye on the ball.

"Blowing up the whole system" is Trump's legal strategy, too.

Bannon is just the echo chamber.

Should have gone for inherent contempt. They could have just had the Sergeant at Arms arrest him and drag him to the committee. If he won't talk, drop him in DC Metro holding cells until he does.

Bannon still has his heart set on Trump winning his appeal on that Executive Privilege case after it gets to the Supreme Court.
