Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon on Tuesday reacted to charges against him for contempt of Congress by vowing to punish President Joe Biden with a "massive investigation" over his ties to China.
Just a day after Bannon surrendered himself to the FBI, the conservative provocateur returned to his podcast by playing video clips from the 1979 film "Apocalypse Now."
"MAGA is punching back," Bannon said. "OK? We're not going to sit here and just take it anymore. After months and months and months and months of just their rhetoric and trying to weaponize the law and weaponize DOJ, we're not going to take it. We're going on offense."
He went on to claim that President Joe Biden's meeting with China's leader, Xi Jinping, was a "surrender" to the Chinese Communist Party.
"Their whole family is compromised by [China's] money," Bannon charged. "There will be a massive investigation as soon as we take back the House."
"They know they're going to be in the minority!" he continued. "We're going to rub their noses publicly in the malfeasance that their lives are. OK?"
He then argued that Democrats are "enemies of the United States of America."
"Gloves are off!" Bannon insisted. "We're going all-in on this thing and we've got so many patriots aligned with us."
Later in the show, Bannon raised his voice.
"This is the war that they've brought to us!" he shouted. "We're going to fight it every day and we don't care what [Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA)], we don't care what the Marxist -- from his Marxist traitor father -- little Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and the Farrakhan mouthpiece [Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS)] -- brilliant Bennie Thompson. Brilliant in quotes."
