Jury selection begins in former Trump adviser Bannon’s contempt trial
Jury selection begins in the trial of Steve Bannon. The former Trump adviser is charged with two counts of criminal contempt of congress for refusing to testify before the House January 6th investigative committee. Once the jury is seated, prosecutors say they only need one day to present their evidence. They plan to call an FBI agent and the general counsel for the house committee as witnesses. Congressional investigators initially subpoenaed Bannon to ask him what he knew before the riot.
Steve Bannon – Former Advisor to President Donald Trump says: “All hell is going to break loose tomorrow. Just understand this, All Hell is going to break Loose tomorrow.”
Judge Carl Nichols declined to delay the trial even though Bannon has now agreed to testify before the committee.
The Judge is also not allowing the defense to call certain witnesses including Nancy Pelosi. If Bannon is found guilty he faces up to a year in prison for each of the two counts. Straight from DC I’m Ray Bogan.
