This afternoon, 9 Republicans joined every single Socialist-Democrat in a vote to hold the wildly popular, conservative podcaster Steve Bannon in contempt. Bannon’s War Room podcast began in 2019 and quickly shot up to the top of the conservative podcast rankings. Iheart radio ranks Bannon’s podcast at #16 of all podcasts in the US.
The vote was 229-202 to hold Bannon in contempt of Congress for refusing to agree before the shark tank in their attempts to falsely blame President Trump and his supporters for an “insurrection,” that’s beginning to look more and more like it was orchestrated by one or more of our intelligence agencies.
Here’s the list of the 9 cowards who voted with the Democrats to help them keep the fake insurrection circus alive:
Liz Cheney (WY), Adam Kinzinger (IL), Brian Fitzpatrick (PA), Anthony Gonzalez (OH), Herrera Beutler (WA), John Katko (NY), Nancy Mace (SC), Peter Meijer (MI), and Fred Upton (MI).
One cowardly Republican curiously didn’t cast a vote.
Daily Mail reports – The only representative who did not cast a vote on Thursday was Indiana Republican Congressman Greg Pence, the brother of Trump’s Vice President Mike Pence.
‘If you act deliberately with sneering, cavalier contempt for the American people,’ said Representative Jamie Raskin, a member of the committee, ‘we will hold you in contempt.’
‘We will get to the truth of the violent assault on America,’ the Maryland Democrat continued.
The resolution will now be handed over to the Justice Department, where there is still uncertainty over whether Joe Biden’s team will move to prosecute Bannon.
Attorney General Merrick Garland would not say during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday whether the DOJ would move forward with bringing criminal contempt charges against Bannon.
Florida Representative Matt Gaetz, a Trump ally, said: ‘Why are we here on the floor of the House of Representatives listening to the Democrats and socialists and their Republican puppets reviewing Steve Bannon’s podcast?’
The 9/11-style committee crafted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to probe the January 6 riot voted unanimously on Tuesday evening to hold Bannon in contempt, which then led to a House Rules Committee vote on Wednesday for a procedure for the House to hold a full floor vote on holding Bannon in contempt of Congress.
