Well, the Dems attempt to turn January 6th into a massive hoax for the next 5-years, the same way they did with the Russia hooey, has just been derailed.
Steve Bannon, who was subpoenaed by the House Select committee pretending to “investigate” the January 6th melee, just refused to comply with a subpoena from the group.
Bannon says that he stands with President Trump on this matter, who says he will assert “executive privilege” over the issue.
Politico reported that Steve Bannon has refused to comply with a subpoena issued by the House select committee investigating January 6th, according to a letter obtained by Politico.
Bannon’s attorney, Robert Costello, wrote in a letter to House investigators that Bannon does not have to comply because of Trump’s right to keep information confidential through executive privilege.
“It is therefore clear to us that since the executive privileges belong to President Trump, and he has, through his counsel, announced his intention to assert those executive privileges enumerated above, we must accept his direction and honor his invocation of executive privilege,” Costello wrote to the House committee on Thursday, which was the deadline to respond to the subpoena.
The committee also requested information and documents from other former Trump administration officials, including Mark Meadows, Dan Scavino and Kash Patel. The subpoenas asked Bannon and Patel to sit for depositions on October 14 and for Meadows and Scavino to sit the next day.
The House committee’s chairman, Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, could seek criminal referrals for witnesses who fail to comply, according to The New York Times.
And the news has hit the TDS group really hard.
Remember the Lincoln Project? The anti-Trump group was shunned after it was discovered that members were using their power and position to troll young boys.
Well, their fearless leader, who covered up the trolling, just took to Twitter to throw a hissy fit, and cry that the January 6th committee is basically done and over…they’re not going to enforce the subpoenas.
Here’s what worm Rick Wilson said:
I have some bad news. After multiple calls I have some extremely grim news. As of now 1/6 commission is dead already, and will not enforce the subpoenas. Trump wins. The 1/6 terror plot will go unexamined and unpunished. To say I’m livid is putting it mildly.
This is staffed wrong, led wrong, and a gutless exercise to get back to talking about infrastructure. They’re not taking the risk seriously, they’re not taking the data before them seriously, and they’re eager to run out the clock. Livid.
I’m told that the whole plan is to bring in academics to examine the information from that day, when it should be a LE/IC style counterterrorism investigation. The leadership has already decided to slow roll it and write a tsk tsk memo at the end.
“They’re afraid of 1A implications.” The FUCK? How about being afraid of a mob coming to fucking kill you? Democrats, never tell me again “We got this.” Because you don’t have this.
Stay locked in your bubble that the modern GOP won’t have a mob of Bannon’s terrorists burn you to the ground and piss on the ashes. An unpunished coup is a training exercise.

I gotta say, I am enjoying watching these losers meltdown.
The thing is, the reason the committee isn’t enforcing the subpoenas is that, like everything the Dems do, this is also a total and complete sham and was simply done as a PR stunt to gin up some media stories.
When the rubber hits the road, the Dems don’t have anything and they knew it.
If they did – they would’ve successfully convicted Presidnet Trump when they impeached him.
This is why gullible Dem voters are always disappointed, because there’s never a “there, there.”
It’s all stunts, manufactured outrage, and smoke and mirrors.
