On Thursday, Steve Bannon was trending on Twitter for a comment he made on his War Room podcast the morning of January 6, the day of the infamous “Capitol Insurrection.” Liberals and leftist media outlets ran with it, claiming it was an “ominous” statement of what was to come that day. However, as per usual, his statement was taken out of context to fit a narrative and blame game that the left loves to play.
Far left media outlet Raw Story reported:
Harvard constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe tweeted Thursday about Steve Bannon warning that the Jan. 6 “rally” was going to be “hell.” Bannon’s comments are resurfacing as the congressional select committee begins its investigation into the Capitol attack.
Tribe claimed that if Bannon knew that it was going to be a “war” and “all hell is going to break loose,” then President Donald Trump also knew what was going to happen.
“All hell is going to break loose tomorrow,” Bannon said on his Jan. 5 show. “Just understand this: all hell is going to break loose tomorrow. It’s going to be moving. It’s gonna be quick.”
Bannon was responding to Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R‑IA) comment that Vice President Mike Pence would preside over the election certification. A previous report that day said that Grassley would be the one to do it and that Pence would not be there.
Steve Bannon actually stated on his broadcast on the morning of January 6th just hours before the Capitol insurrection that “today’s not just a rally… at one o’clock that starts and there’s going to be some pretty controversial things going on.” https://t.co/gbllhHicUC pic.twitter.com/5V9jFT5kRP
