On Friday, jurors reached a verdict in Steve Bannon’s contempt of Congress charge after fewer than three hours of deliberation. Bannon was found guilty on a charge of “willful failure to provide records.”

Fox News reports:

The verdict is expected to be read soon in the courtroom where U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols is presiding. The jury earlier Friday heard closing arguments from both the prosecution and defense.

The Department of Justice charged Bannon with two counts of contempt of Congress after he ignored a subpoena from the House Jan. 6 committee. Bannon pleaded not guilty.

The Justice Department began closing arguments Friday morning with prosecutor Molly Gaston telling jurors, “This is a man who didn’t show up.”

“He didn’t want to recognize Congress’ authority or play by the government’s rules,” Gaston said. “Our government only works if people show up and play by the rules and are held accountable when they do not.”

The reactions streamed in quickly afterward on social media:

 

 



    1. Judging from all of the efforts to ban guns, pass federal laws re: abortion, red flag gun control, deviant behavior protection laws,anti integrity election law, massive, bankruptcy insuring spending bills, etc before midterms, they must be expecting to lose, so watch for widespread vote theft.

    1. You read my mind. Just yesterday I saw a video with garland saying no one is above the law.
      Except if you’re a corrupt, crazy loony lib.
      People, prepare to head to the polls in November by the droves. We’re in serious trouble!

  1. Keep voting in liberal morons and this is what happens to anyone who doesn’t kowtow to them. Vote them out in November and in 2024 get real Americans back in office, then put the liberals on trial for treason.

  2. There is a reason Steve did not present a defense. It would not make any difference to this jury. They were already tainted by the jurisdiction and the number of obvious attempts to taint the jury by the news media. They are a disgrace to this nation and all that have died to preserve it. The prosecution screwed up when asking for the letter on executive privilege that he could not use by order of the court. Now he gets to appeal and maybe all the way to SCOTUS and put an end to this BS. This man is a hero.

  3. He wasn’t tried by a jury of his peers! DC is 95% DIMM; he didn’t stand a chance of a fair trial!

  4. Schumer – Schiff – Nadler – Pelosi – to prison now – then start on Hunter and Joe B the pedophile extortionist – and go by the Constitution that states to vote PRESENT YOURSELF to a polling place to vote

  5. These people need to wake the F-up – I have contempt for this Congress also — only the people still a sleep can’t see what these Congressional clowns have been doing – We been a sleep to long

  6. How many years has it been since anyone was brought to court for contempt of Congress? By, you all just signed your own death of career warrant starting in a couple mo. How are all the idiots on the Jan 6th team gonna get out of their scam when a real investigation starts and you have zero power?? Hahahahah
