The Department of Justice is perplexed at Steve Bannon over his desire to make all of the information on his contempt case to be made public.
The regime does not want this information to be made public because then everyone can see the facts and make up their own minds instead of allowing the regime to set the narrative. That would not be good for them.
Steve Bannon is being charged with contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with the phony January 6th Commission.
This is a special project of Liz Cheney which will be her last hurrah as an elected candidate. People are urging Cheney to vote for her opponent in 2022 and make it unanimous.
As it turns out, Bannon is getting a lot of cooperation from the press in his fight, including CNN, ABC, NBC, plus the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the parent company of the Wall Street Journal.
The Daily Mail reported:
A coalition of major media companies has filed a legal brief in support of former Trump chief White House strategist Steven Bannon as he fights a proposed protective order in court that would keep him from publicizing Jan. 6th documents and information.
The media group – which includes CNN, ABC, NBC, plus the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the parent company of the Wall Street Journal – filed a motion to intervene as Bannon’s fights the government’s proposed order as part of his contempt of Congress case.
The order would severely limit what Bannon can do with the trove of information that the feds must share as part of the normal discovery process and have already begun handing over. According to a prior government filing, this includes more than 1,000 pages of witness testimony, grand jury material, and even emails from staff for the House Jan. 6th Committee investigating the Capitol riot.
The press group argues that the government’s proposed order would violate the First Amendment – and takes on the government’s own contention that allowing Bannon to use the materials would result in pretrial publicity that could taint the jury pool.
