Bannon Predicts GOP Will Win Back House, Impeach Biden Over Border Crisis


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Steve Bannon, the former adviser to former President Donald Trump, believes that the end of the President Joe Biden disaster is in sight.

The podcast host believes that the Republicans will win the House in November and move to impeach the president.

“You have stood down ICE and you’ve stood down Border Patrol, and guess what? That’s the impeachment hearing I want to hear,” he said on his “War Room” podcast.

“You’re going to sit there day after day and week after week and we’re going to bring the witnesses,” the host said. “We’re going to bring the witnesses of what you did to this country and what you did on the southern border.”

“Preserve your documents because after impeachment, they’re going to put you up on criminal charges. Criminal charges for allowing this country to be invaded by your actions,” he said.

“Acts of commission not acts of omission,” he said. “We’re not going to back down, so write it down. This November is about one thing: it’s impeaching Joe Biden to stop this madness and to stop this illegitimate regime from destroying our nation.”


But in the meantime, Bannon is doing his part to bring the smackdown to current House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

As he prepares to go to trial next month for defying a congressional subpoena his attorneys have subpoenaed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the nine members of the House Select Committee investigating January 6, 2021, The Daily Mail reported.

David Schoen, Bannon’s attorney, said that the Democrats and others on the committee had conflicts that made them ineligible.

“It’s a party political abuse of the criminal system, in my opinion,” the attorney said.

“It never should have been done and it proves to me that they’re not interested in his testimony they were interested in making a spectacle and intimidating people,” he said.

They will get that spectacle on Thursday when the committee holds its hearings in prime time.

The subpoenas were accepted by the House counsel, Doug Letter, last Friday, but in a twist of irony Letter and the members could move to have the subpoenas dismissed based on the speech and debate clause.

The speech and debate clause appears in Article 1, section 6 of the United States Constitution and says that “for any Speech or Debate in either House, they [members] shall not be questioned in any other Place.”

“The subpoenas are asking for materials that belong to the American people. It would be pretty ironic for the committee to quash the subpoenas when they issued a subpoena demanding materials from Bannon, where Trump asserted executive privilege,” Bannon’s attorney said.


But that is precisely the strategy that one CNN contributor, Thomas Spulak, who served as general counsel to the House of Representatives in the 1990s, believes the subpoenaed members will use and he believes they will succeed.

“In this particular case I’m extremely confident that the staff members and members of the House would be shielded by the Speech and Debate Clause,” he said.

“I’m very confident that defense would be upheld, and they will not be compelled to produce anything or appear for anything,” he said.

Schoen said that it was a “sad irony.”

“Here you have Bannon, referred by this committee for criminal prosecution for not complying with a subpoena when executive privilege was invoked by the former president and his hands are tied, but then you would have the committee members saying they refuse to testify,” the attorney said.

“Their testimony and their documents belong to the American people and it shouldn’t be their role to refuse to testify.

“They want all the facts to come out then come out and testify about them and produce the documents,” he said.
