Steve Bannon is either "clairvoyant" or he "knew" that former president Donald Trump's supporters planned to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6, according to Illinois Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger.
Kinzinger, a member of the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection, appeared on CNN on Wednesday night to discuss the House's impending vote on whether to refer a criminal contempt report for Bannon to the Department of Justice.
Host Wolf Blitzer asked Kinzinger whether he agrees with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who suggested Tuesday night that Bannon was "personally involved" in planning the insurrection shortly before the committee voted unanimously to forward the contempt report to the full House.
"I don't want to get into the evidence that we have or don't have," Kinzinger responded. "I'll keep that under wraps. Obviously, we're going to continue to find out what we need to find out, but look, you played the sound bite of Steven Bannon saying, 'Look, tomorrow's going to be wild, it's not going to go down how you expect.'"
"Either he was clairvoyant or he knew something," Kinzinger added. "A lot of us predicted violence. I predicted violence on Jan. 6 a week or two prior, but I never expected it would be to this level, that they would sack the Captiol. Steve Bannon seemed to know something, and we want to know what he knew."
