The House panel investigating the January 6th Capitol riot has denied a request from Trump’s former strategist Steve Bannon to delay a vote to refer him for criminal prosecution. The denial comes after Trump filed a lawsuit Monday to black the committee from accessing his administration’s record with the National Archives. Trump claims the move violated executive privilege.

The Hill reports:

A letter from Bannon’s attorney asks for a weeklong delay “so that we might thoughtfully assess the impact of this pending legislation.”

Even before Trump formally filed the suit, Bannon had said he would not comply with the committee’s subpoena until the former president’s executive privilege case was addressed by the courts.

Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) denied the request, calling the committee’s work “extremely important and urgent for the nation.”

“Further delay in compliance by Mr. Bannon undermines the ability of the committee to timely complete its essential responsibilities,” he continued.

The panel is set to vote Tuesday night on Bannon’s criminal referral.

Their intent is to have President Trump charged and convicted of a felony. They are still looking for something to pin on him. With the Garland DOJ and a weaponized FBI, anything is possible.

Don’t bow to the woke, they can’t do a dam thing about it, if he refuses. The dumbocraps have been doing it all the time,E.holder,obuthead’s wingman, and m,any others. Tell them to shove it, executive privilege stops it.

So where is the evidence they need to present before a trial…It isn’t there! You people are upside down. No evidence before hand no trial, or they’ll make something up.

Executive privilege may be longer lasting that the Democrats think. If the purpose is to allow the President to get candid advice from advisors and staff in the White House as President, how will that hold up if the minute the President is out of office the Congress can compel testimony? I’d like to see this issue before the SCOTUS.

Sounds like an ABUSE OF AUTHORITY that rises to the level of TREASON.

THAT would INCLUDE EVERY MEMBER of the ‘communist smelling committee’…
