No one should comply with Pelosi’s political show… its nothing but political theater. Bannon is the real leader of the MAGA movement.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D‑CA), who sits on the Jan. 6 committee investigating the Capitol riot, announced over the weekend that they are “prepared to go forward and urge the Justice Department” to prosecute conservatives who refuse to comply with their subpoenas.
The House committee is especially intent on sinking their fangs into Steve Bannon. The committee may refer Bannon for criminal prosecution by the Department of Justice (DOJ) if he doesn’t show up for a deposition slated for Thursday according to The Hill.
McQuade said the committee has other options. It could seek the assistance of the House sergeant-at-arms to arrest Bannon — an unlikely move — or file its own civil suit asking a judge to hold Bannon in contempt, jailing him until he agrees to speak with lawmakers.
“It’s the less aggressive approach that might be effective,” she said. “Prosecutors in general and Garland in particular tend to look for the path of least resistance. I don’t need to use the nuclear weapon if the conventional weapon will work.”
