Jan. 6 committee to seek criminal charges after Bannon defies subpoena

Source: Axios

Trump ally Steve Bannon failed to show up for a deposition before the Jan. 6 select committee on Thursday, paving the way for the House panel to seek criminal charges against him for defying a congressional subpoena.

Why it matters: It's the first major test for how the committee will respond to witnesses' refusal to cooperate, an obstacle that stalled countless Democratic investigations during the Trump era by triggering protracted legal battles.

What they're saying: "Mr. Bannon has declined to cooperate with the Select Committee and is instead hiding behind the former Presidentís insufficient, blanket, and vague statements regarding privileges he has purported to invoke. We reject his position entirely," committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said in a statement.

"The Select Committee will not tolerate defiance of our subpoenas, so we must move forward with proceedings to refer Mr. Bannon for criminal contempt. Iíve notified the Select Committee that we will convene for a business meeting Tuesday evening to vote on adopting a contempt report."

1. I Still See Nothing Coming Of This

I'm sorry, but I just don't.

I'll gladly admit how completely wrong I was, should ANY of these guys get arrested and taken to jail.

It's all a Dog & Pony show, so far as I'm concerned. Delay, Delay, Delay, Delay, rinse and repeat.

Meanwhile, the Democracy which once existed, is fading in the rear view mirror. Never to be seen again.

5. What does it mean to "refer Mr. Bannon for criminal contempt"?

How many steps between this and actually arresting him?

6. referral will have to be reviewed, charges drawn up, arrest warrant secured....

the fascist lush found and arrested, then his attorneys will promptly start filing motions about divine right of kings, executive privilege, pardons, blah, blah, blah.

Bannon may get dried out while setting in a cell, more likely he will be out on bail.

After all the dust settles and the issues wind their way through the courts, the lush will sit himself down in front of the committee and take the 5th.

7. Yup

The only way he doesn't take the Fifth when it all shakes out is if they have him dead to rights in some communication of some type and he talks to save his sorry backside.
