Steve Bannon has a message for the members of the Jan. 6 committee, and he isn’t holding back.
“We’re winning in November, and we’re gonna impeach you and everybody around you,” he said Friday on his “War Room” show, adding, “Screw the White House!”
After daring Attorney General Merrick Garland to indict President Donald Trump based on the committee’s findings, Trump’s former chief strategist asserted: “Donald J. Trump won the presidency and he is the legitimate president of the United States, and your guy’s illegitimate and the American people are awakening to that.”
Bannon’s comments followed news that he had subpoenaed every member of the Jan. 6 committee, along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, ahead of his trial on July 18.
He will be the first former White House adviser to be tried for contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with the committee’s investigation.
Following his initial court hearing in November, Bannon vowed to fight the charges against him, contending that they were politically motivated.
“Nancy Pelosi is taking on Donald Trump and Steve Bannon,” he noted. “She ought to ask Hillary Clinton how that turned out for them, OK? We’re going on the offense.”
