Trump loyalist Steve Bannon set to testify at January 6 panel, internet has big trust issues


Steve Bannon, a former adviser to former US President Donald Trump, told the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, uprising on Saturday (July 9) that he was now willing to testify, preferably in court. a public hearing. Previously, the January 6 committee blamed Donald Trump entirely. This opportunity could help the committee gain valuable insight into Trump’s alleged attempt to overthrow the government.

According to letters obtained by The Guardian, Bannon discussed the time and place of an interview, after Trump mentioned in a letter that he would waive executive privilege if he reached an agreement to testify. “When you first received the subpoena to testify and provide documents, I claimed executive privilege. However, I saw how unfairly you and others were treated, having to spend huge amounts of money on legal fees and all the trauma you have to go through for the love of your country and out of respect for the office of the president,” Trump wrote in the letter. He continued: “Therefore, if you come to an agreement on a time and place for your testimony, I will waive executive privilege for you, which allows you to come in and testify honestly and fairly, Screening Committee ( January 6 Committee) of political thugs and Hacks, who allowed no due process, no cross-examination, and no real Republican members or witnesses to be present or questioned.”

Trump’s letter also said, “This is a partisan kangaroo court.” With Trump willing to waive executive privilege if Bannon and the committee can strike a deal, allows the former United States President’s strategist to opt for a public hearing approach, which, by the way, is passing, is Bannon’s preference. However, it is understood he would opt for a closed-door, transcribed interview. The letter explains that he is now willing to comply with the subpoenas he received in 2021. With this new development, the January 6 committee may take a different turn. However, the internet is divided by this announcement.

Internet denounces Steve Bannon’s scheme

One user wrote: “Bannon wants his own special treatment from the Jan 6 committee – going straight to a public hearing where he can show up and refuse to answer questions. Wrong. He should be treated like any other other witness: a private hearing first to determine if he is truly cooperative.” Another user said: “Count me as a skeptic that Steve Bannon will testify before the J6C. He will insist on ground rules that they would be crazy to allow, and they are not crazy. And of course, it’s a ploy on his part to help him with his trial, which is due in a week.”

A certain person who was very disappointed in Bannon said: “Good time to remind people that Steve Bannon is one of the most dangerous people on the planet. He sees the world like Trump but unlike Trump he is very smart. Everything what Bannon is doing has an agenda and should never be turned away from in person or in any type of process.” Another user tweeted: “1/2 Given Bannon’s clear statements over time that he wants to burn down the whole government, there’s no reason to treat this as a good faith offer. As with all other witnesses, he should have to speak privately with the committee, under oath, first to test his sincerity.”
