Prediction Number Two, Testimony of Steven Bannon.

When Steve Bannon is forced to Comply with the Congress's January 6th investigation, I predict he will testify that his statements before the Insurrection were about a battle Trump Supporters wanted with BLM and Antifa, not an invasion of the Capital building and Grounds!
Let's just say, a little Birdy told me that and leave it at that, Bannon will make a deal with the DOJ to testify in return for reduced charges, Unless there is something hidden in the White House documents that is Explosive in Nature, that will be his alibi.

The DoJ will probably be making no deals regarding the 6-Jan investigation.

They will deal because if he lies under Oath before Congress he gets more time in Jail. Just putting him in Jail serves no Perpose to the Investigation.

Bannon's already said the exact opposite. He's quoted in the Woodward/Acosta book saying they would destroy the Biden presidency in the cradle in relation to January 6th. That testimony wouldn't make any sense now.

I don't think making sense is his forte.

He can plead the fifth to every question, right?

Heís likely holding out until after midterms. He already has little to fear from a Congressional investigation, but if Republicans take the house heís effectively safe

Considering the audio and video tapes, I don't think "I don't recall" is going to be an acceptable answer.

I know that but that can be taken literally or Politically.

He will be quizzed about that, but selective amnesia is fairly impenetrable.

Can we lock him back up in the Biosphere?

(Odd bit of trivia that Bannon was the CEO of Biosphere 2, at least for a while.


My guess is that Bannon and others will slow walk everything as much as they can. They're betting on the Dems losing the majority in Congress a year from now, which would end the investigation. He knows that he just needs to drag things out until then.

Bannon always has the option of going on "an extended holiday" to some country that has no expedition treaty with the USA.

He'd have to be careful coming back. He'd add an Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution charge if he did that. If he came back, he'd have some issues.
