(PresidentialWire.com)- Steve Bannon, the former adviser to President Donald Trump, asked Rep. Matt Gaetz on Wednesday to expand on a theory he proposed that the recent decision to hold Bannon in contempt of Congress for refusing a congressional subpoena was a “set up.”
Bannon was subpoenaed as part of the January 6 investigatory House Select Committee, and when he refused to comply with the subpoena under the advice of former President Donald Trump’s attorneys, Congressional Democrats declared that he was in contempt of Congress and he may now face criminal penalties.
Bannon invited Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz onto his popular War Room show, asking for more information about the committee and the actions of far-left Attorney General Merrick Garland.
“About Merrick Garland…give our audience some inside baseball,” he said, prompting Gates to explain why Garland came to Capitol Hill, and how the entire situation is a “set up.”
In the interview, which you can watch in the link above, Gaetz explained that he believes we are watching a concerted effort to prosecute and persecute Steve Bannon unfold. He said that the plot was “stitched together.” He also said that Attorney General Merrick Garland’s recent appearance before the House Judiciary Committee – where he refused to answer questions about whether federal agents were involved with the January 6 riot – was part of an effort to create a “wholly-enclosed ecosystem of the political persecution in Congress” using the enforcement tools of the Justice Department.
One of the scariest things he has ever observed, he said, is witnessing the FBI become the enforcement wing of the Democratic Party. He also said that Jeff Sessions, the first attorney general of the Trump administration, wasn’t as proactive as he needed to be and even accused him of siding too often with the Democrats.
He claimed that Sessions went to the department “and got Stockholm Syndrome.”
