One of the most important aides from the former Trump administration confirmed he will not stand before the committee investigating the storming of the U.S. Capitol in Washington.

 

We are talking about Steve Bannon, Chief Adviser of the former President.

 

So it was reported on Thursday by El Diario de Nueva York and other mainstream media in Washington, like EFE and CNN.

 

The investigation committee approved it by 299 votes in favor and 202 votes against, as it determined Banon violated certain obligations.

 

His pretext is his communication privilege with Donald Trump.

 

In this regard, Bannon could face up to a year in prison and pay a fine of 100,000 USD if the U.S. Department of Justice continues the process.

 

Previously, he was exonerated by Trump when he pocketed 25 million US dollars allegedly allocated for the building of the border wall with Mexico, and some of that money was used in his own interest.

 

On Thursday, his lawyer Robert Costello sent a message to the CNN where he stated that he will not help in the aforementioned inquiry and added: “Until things are cleared up, we cannot respond to the request of documents and testimonies.”

 

Simultaneously, California congressman Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, defended to pass a motion against Bannon by pointing out that “the Congress is investigating the worst attack on the U.S. Capitol in over a century.”

 

Diario de Nueva York added that the motion was backed by nine Republicans, including Liz Cheney and Adam Kizinger, who are the only Republican Party affiliates members of the House Select Committee.

 

The decision to continue this process will depend on the General Attorney Merrick Garland, once signed by its President, Nancy Pelosi.

 

A wonderful sign of how freedom and human rights are implemented in the United States.
