When the DOJ decided to go after Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress they probably thought they had hit the big time.
They thought this would give their sham January 6th circus the shot in the arm that it desperately needed.
Boy, were they wrong.
What the Dems and Biden’s Deep State didn’t realize, was that Steve was luring them into a trap — a trap that he carefully set and that will spring right back in their faces.
Bannon’s latest move is pure evil-genius.
The papers that Bannon refused to turn over to Congress – which the January 6th committee would have used however they wanted, releasing only what suited their needs – he now wants to release – but not to Congress.
Steve wants to release them to the PUBLIC, and this is freaking the Dems out, and they’re now going to court to stop him.
But in an ironic twist, the media is on Bannon’s side, and they’re asking the court to allow Steve to make the paper’s public, which is the last thing Dems want.
“The DOJ is prosecuting Bannon for not releasing documents to Congress, but going to court to stop him from releasing documents to the public. Pure tyranny.”

The Daily Beast reported that Steve Bannon, who became the first person in nearly 40 years to be indicted on a charge of criminal contempt of Congress, now appears to be using his criminal case to go after the committee that went after him.
Bannon is attempting to force investigators to expose who they’ve talked to and what they’ve said, peek into secret communications on the committee, and create a playbook for other resistant witnesses, according to several legal experts.
“There’s no cost to opposing Congress if you can give Congress a black eye for even daring to ask you questions,” said Kel McClanahan, an attorney who specializes in national security matters.
As Bannon faces criminal charges, he’s entitled to the evidence against him.
And in a typical galaxy-brain, Bannon countergambit, Trump’s former senior adviser is trying to make some of that evidence public.
According to a Sunday night court filing by federal prosecutors, that includes secret witness interviews by law enforcement and internal communications between House committee staff members. The Justice Department claims that, if this material were exposed to the public, it would cause “specific harms” like “witness tampering,” with the added effect of making it difficult to find impartial jurors at a future trial.
In a court filing on Tuesday, Bannon’s lawyers said the government’s argument was “festooned with hyperbole… perhaps designed to score points with the media.” That same day, a “press coalition” of 15 news organizations—including Buzzfeed, CNN, and The Washington Post—sided with Bannon and asked the judge overseeing the case to make documents available and reject what it called “this broad gag order.”
Bannon is severely raising the cost of coming after him—making good on his promise to turn this into the “misdemeanor from hell for Merrick Garland, Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden.”
We knew the Dems were making a big mistake trying to go after Steve Bannon.
This is where he shines.
This is the type of fight that he lives for, so he will not only make the most of it for “political show,” but he’ll also have a lot of fun in the process.
