Steve Bannon did not back down today when he surrendered to the FBI for contempt of Congress charges. Bannon said:
“I’m telling you right now, this is going to be the misdemeanor from hell for Merrick Garland, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden. Joe Biden ordered Merrick Garland to prosecute me from the White House lawn when he got off Marine One and we’re going to go on the offense.
“We’re tired of playing defense. We’re going to go on the offense on this. We’re taking down the Biden regime. Remember, signal not noise. This is all noise. That’s signal.”
“Not just Trump people, not just conservatives, every progressive and every liberal in this country that likes freedom of speech and liberty, okay, should be fighting this case.
“That’s why I’m here today, for everybody. I’m never going to back down, and they took on the wrong guy this time, OK?
Bannon’s attorney David Schoen said:
“Mr. Bannon acted as his lawyer counseled him to do by not appearing and by not turning over documents in this case. He didn’t refuse to comply.”
“This Country has perhaps never done to anyone what they have done to Steve Bannon and they are looking to do it to others, also.
“If they would not be so tough with China, Russia, and the world, who no longer respect us, maybe our Country would not be failing at a level at which we have never seen before.
“We never talk about making our country great, and it is now heading in an unthinkable direction with the Afghanistan withdrawal, open Borders, Inflation, Woke everything, and so much more. The USA is a radicalized mess!”
