There’s a fake news story out there that former President Trump’s close adviser Steve Bannon finally broke and told the 1/6 Committee he would testify.
Reuters wrote in a social media post, “Donald Trump’s former close adviser Steve Bannon has told the congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol that he is ready to testify, a change of heart days before he is due to be tried for contempt of Congress.”

Bannon had previously been arrested on two criminal contempt charges for refusing to testify before the committee after he cited executive privilege.
Former President Trump has decided to let Bannon off his leash and sent him a letter releasing him of the executive privilege and encouraging him to testify before the committee. What Reuters claimed was fabricated fake news.
“I write about the Subpoena that you received in September 2021 from the illegally constituted Unselect Committee, the same group of people who created the Russia Russia Russia scam, Impeachment hoax #1, Impeachment hoax #2, the Mueller Witch-Hunt (which ended in no “Collusion”), and other fake and never-ending yarns and tales,” Trump began in the letter obtained by The Post Millennial.
“When you first received the Subpoena to testify and provide documents, I invoked Executive Privilege. However, I watched how unfairly you and others have been treated, having to spend vast amounts of money on legal fees, and all of the trauma you must be going through for the love of your Country, and out of respect for the Office of the President.
“Therefore, if you reach an agreement on a time and place for your testimony. I will waive Executive Privilege for you, which allows for you to go in and testify truthfully and fairly, as per the request of the Unselect Committee of political Thugs and Hacks, who have allowed no Due Process, no Cross-Examination, and no real Republican members or witnesses to be present or interviewed. It is a partisan Kangaroo Court.
“Why should these evil, sinister, and unpatriotic people be allowed to hurt and destroy the lives of so many, and cause such great harm to our Country? It has been, from the time I came down the escalator at Trump Tower, a political hit job against the overwhelming majority of Americans who support the concept and policy of Making America Great Again and putting America First. Good luck in all of your future endeavors,” Trump concluded.
If you know Bannon, he’s a pitbull and Trump just let him off his leash. Bannon is about to run circles around the RINOs and Democrats on the Committee and it will be a sight to behold.
