On Tuesday, a federal judge rejected a request from Steve Bannon to delay his criminal contempt for one month.

Fox News reports:

Tuesday morning, the former White House aide’ss attorney Evan Corcoran asked Judge Carl Nichols for a one-month continuance following an argument between the parties over admitting into evidence letters between Bannon and the House Jan. 6 committee.

“The motion to continue is denied,” Nichols stated following a short recess after the motion was formally made.

Corcoran said there was a “seismic shift” in the parties’ understanding surrounding the judge’s past rulings.

Judge Nichols ultimately said that the letters could be admitted, although there were discussions about whether to redact portions of them to limit the scope of what jurors could see.

Bannon’s trial comes months after he was charged with two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with the committee’s requests.

The Left is Satanic to its core. They prove it everyday.
No Republican, Conservative, “right-wing”, Christian or heterosexual will ever get a fair shake with those monsters in charge. DemoRats/Leftists/Liberals are greedy, evil, rotten, mean and nasty. Prove me wrong.

For the life of me I can’t see how anyone that isn’t a Democrat could ever get a fair trial in D.C.. Look at the recent trial of Sussman lieing to the FBI under oath. For the Jurist to say that this case want’t important to convict him. Then you have all the protesters still sitting in jail waiting for their trials. So much for speedy trials. Getting misdemeanor charges against then then being threatened if they don’t accept the charges more charges will be added against them. They are just being railroaded.

Now in the US it is a crime not to succumb to a highly partisan, illegal and unconstitutional Congressional investigation which the committee is highly partisan, doesn’t allow opposing opinion, does not allow cross examination of witnesses and all members being appointed by Nancy Pelosi which is what makes it illegal and unconstitutional. This kind of lawlessness is what happens when we allow an election to be stolen and a puppet installed as President.

Guess some $$$ changed hands during the break. Pelosi just made a 16% gain from the $5,000,000.00 stock deal that the drunk, MR Pelosi invested just 5 days ago just before the vote on a Tax Money Give Away for a company. Anyone else would go to prision for crap like that. Guess what, the Bill Passed. Pelosi’s have a lot of foresight.
