Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon told his War Room audience last Friday he will not be testifying before the Jan. 6th Committee.
President Trump urged his supporters to ignore the subpoenas to appear before the Democrat, and Liz Cheney’s, struggle session.
The January 6 Congressional Committee responded to Bannon’s defiance by voting 9-0 to refer Bannon to the DOJ to face criminal contempt charges.
The matter will then head to the House of Representatives for a full vote.
If the House approves, the referral will be sent to the US Attorney’s office in DC which will ultimately decide whether to press charges against Bannon.
