The House of Representatives Voted on Thursday afternoon to hold former top Trump aide Steve Bannon in contempt for his refusal to submit to a subpoena which demanded he testify before congress.

As Axios reports:

The House of Representatives voted 229-202 on Thursday to hold former Trump strategist Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the Jan. 6 select committee.

Why it matters: The Justice Department will now consider bringing criminal charges against Bannon, marking a significant escalation in the Jan. 6 committee’s efforts to enforce subpoenas against Trump allies who refuse to cooperate.

Between the lines: If the vote demonstrated Democrats’ united front in using any means necessary to uncover facts about Trump’s role in Jan. 6, it also showed similar unity among Republicans for opposing the investigation.

A total of only 9 Republicans voted with Democrats to hold Bannon in contempt.

Perhaps the VOTERS of their respective STATES will take NOTICE and either Vote for
RECALL or Vote them OUT next cycle.
I breathed a deep breath when NONE of them were from my State.

Two of them, Fred Upton and Pete Meijer are both from MI. Here are their credentials: Fred Upton: Uncle of Kate Upton, actress well-known for her hot bod Pete Meijer, heir to the grocery chain is known for his biased’ opinions – he’d be better off stocking shelves.

The ‘usual’ group of two-faced, mis-placed Democrats. I cannot comprehend why they just become Independents…there are probably more ‘like them’ therefore building a forced to be reckoned with.
