Republicans are 'shooting themselves in the foot' by not agreeing Bannon is in contempt: reporter

CNN reporter Jim Sciutto revealed Wednesday morning that Republican leaders said they're telling members to vote "no" in holding Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for not complying with the Jan. 6 House Select Committee subpoena. The decision is a mistake, according to the network's legal analyst Elliot Williams.

While Williams confessed that the partisan behavior is "predictable," he said that the GOP members will likely return to the majority and at that point, they won't be able to enforce their own subpoenas, which they'll likely aim to use to bring down President Joe Biden

Donald Trump is desperately trying to stop, or at the very least stall, the subpoenas from the Jan. 6 House Select Committee, but a CNN report explained that there are few legal options available to the former president. The current plan appears to be to bury any House request with years of lawsuits, said CNN.

Monday, Trump filed a lawsuit to stop the National Archives from handing over any communications from his White House staff relating to Jan. 6, organization and planning around the event and any efforts to promote rage among his supporters around a "stolen election."

Washington Post reporter Robert Costa thinks that there's no real way for Republicans to claim former President Donald Trump didn't have any involvement in the Jan. 6 rally and the riot that followed. The reason, he explained, is that Trump was actually involved.
