President Trump Responds To Judge Ruling Steve Bannon Must Report To Jail

President Trump has responded to Steve Bannon being ordered by a federal judge to report to jail.

As the WLT Report covered earlier Thursday, a federal judge ruled that War Room host Steve Bannon must report to prison on July 1st for defying a subpoena from the U.S. House’s January 6th Committee.

Trump, in a post on Truth Social, wrote, It would not have mattered whether Steve Bannon, and others, went in front of the Unselect Committee of Criminal Hacks and Thugs, BECAUSE ALL OF THE INFORMATION ENDED UP BEING ILLEGALLY DELETED AND DESTROYED BY THESE CORRUPT RADICALS!”

In response to Trump’s statement, Bannon wrote on GETTR, “Thank You, Mr. President.”

Per AP:

Steve Bannon, a longtime ally of former President Donald Trump, must report to prison by July 1 to serve his four-month sentence for defying a subpoena from the House committee that investigated the U.S. Capitol insurrection, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols in Washington granted the Justice Department’s request to make Bannon begin his prison term after a federal appeals court panel last month upheld his contempt of Congress conviction.

Bannon is expected to seek a stay of the judge’s order, which could delay his surrender date.

“I’ve got great lawyers, and we’re going to go all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to,” Bannon told reporters outside the courthouse. He added: “There’s not a prison built or jail built that will ever shut me up.”

In a social media post Thursday, Trump accused prosecutors of being “desperate” to jail Bannon. Trump repeated his claim that Republicans are being persecuted by a politically motivated justice system — rhetoric that has escalated in the wake of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s conviction last week on 34 felony charges in his New York hush money trial.

This is the Steve Bannon that will emerge from prison on November 1.

Get ready democrats. You messed with the wrong dude.
