President Donald Trump on Sunday released a statement regarding the unjust indictments of his former advisor and strategist Steve Bannon.
In a statement, President Trump said, “This Country has perhaps never done to anyone what they have done to Steve Bannon and they are looking to do it to others, also.”
“If they would be so tough with China, Russia, and the world, who no longer respects us, maybe our Country would not be failing at a level at which we have never seen before,” he added, slamming the administration.
A federal grand jury indicted Bannon for contempt of Congress after refusing to accept the subpoena that he was served with after the Jan. 6 protest.
Bannon’s indictment is the first of its kind as there has never been a charge of contempt of Congress after executive privilege has been invoked. The only defendants that have testified were going to speak on behalf of their time in office, however, Steve Bannon had left the White House in 2017, before the House ever had a select committee on Jan. 6.
If convicted of these charges, Bannon could face up to a year in prison and a fine of $100,000.
President Trump’s statement ended with, “We never talk about making our Country great, and it is now heading in an unthinkable direction with the Afghanistan withdrawal, open Borders, Inflation, Woke everything, and so much more. The USA is a radicalized mess!”
The Jan. 6 Commission stated Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows could be facing similar proceedings since he also refused to comply.
