I would totally issue another subpoena to Bannon.

The J6 wanted documents, didn't they? They wanted testimony? Let's just do that. He thinks he's done. Let's give him a headache, and see if his present lawyer wants to do Round Two.

3. The original one is still outstanding, I believe

4. Issuing a second subpoena would be redundant. The rest one is still in effect. That's what the trial

was all about.

5. An interesting question.

This criminal trial was about punishment.

https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/GPO-HPRACTICE-112/html/GPO-HPRACTICE-112-18.htm

Bannon could have been let off when he offered to testify belatedly; however, the J6 Committee said, "Yeah, you can if you want, but you are still in trouble for failure to comply with your subpoena." So, Bannon didn't control that, and he got convicted of a criminal misdemeanor for failure to answer the subpoena.

If Bannon was into it, he could have testified and provided documents even without a subpoena, but he's not, so now he has this other problem, which will not go away. He's not going to be tried twice, and he's not going to be punished twice. There is no other date of compliance that he could be notified of via subpoena, because those dates are passed.

But, let's say those documents are still worth looking at. The way to notify him and his new attorney (see what I did there) of the compliance date would be through subpoena. There would have to be a second subpoena. If they want to talk to him or receive documents from him now, they have to have a legal way to do it. Because, he's going to get his ass punished for failure to comply with the first subpoena. The subpoena isn't going to stay alive forever. This Congress will be over on January 3, 2023. Hopefully, he'll be in jail anyway.

6. Give him the full two years and and maximum fines and be done with him.

If ever a convicted defendant deserves the max he’s the poster child. I wouldn’t waste one more minute on him to come in and plead the 5th on every question. No need to give him a break from his prison cell.

7. If we don't win everything at Midterms

he'll be a free man. This never was for the meat and potatoes of his character; Trump pardoned him for that. This was a slap on the wrist for his arrogance. The J6 Committee made that plain.

He's out there the same day broadcasting how Trump is going to get reelected and decimate our Government. I hope, hope, hope that somehow this Judge finds out and thinks over very carefully what the best punishment is for this vile creature. But, we at least won this day, even though it is unlikely that he will get more than a slap on the wrist.

It IS interesting how he offered to belatedly testify. I wonder what the meaning of that is, and whether it indicates a weakening of his defiance. Let's just send him to jail--a real jail--for at least the minimum, and maybe he can't interfere with the Midterms. I don't think he can broadcast from jail.
