Judge says it "cuts in Mr. Bannon's favor" that the committee didn't go to court to enforce its subpoena, but sought out prosecution— Scott MacFarlane (@MacFarlaneNews) October 21, 2022
In America today you can now be sent to prison for months on end for mocking illegitimate government committees and Democrat lawmakers.
As investigative journalist Julie Kelly pointed out, the Department of Justice extended Steve Bannon’s jail sentence because he mocked the Democrat Party’s January 6 Committee and he mocked Democrats Adam Schiff and Eric Fang-Fang Swalwell.
This is no longer allowed in America today.

Here is the DOJ document condemning Steve Bannon for mocking these communists.
Steve Bannon also called the sham January 6 Committee that is filled with Democrats, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger a “Moscow Show Trial.”
Steve Bannon’s sentencing hearing is Friday morning. Steve Bannon is only one of the first political prisoners. He won’t be the last.
The leftist AP reported:
Steve Bannon, a longtime ally of former President Donald Trump, is scheduled to be sentenced Friday after being convicted of defying a subpoena from the House panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
Bannon was convicted in July of two counts of contempt of Congress: one for refusing to sit for a deposition and the other for refusing to provide documents.
Prosecutors have asked the judge in his case to impose a hefty sentence of six months in jail, while Bannon’s lawyers have argued their client deserves a sentence of probation. The statutes for contempt of Congress each carry a minimum sentence of 30 days behind bars, but Bannon’s lawyers argue the judge could just sentence him to probation and not send him to jail.
The House committee had sought Bannon’s testimony over his involvement in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Bannon has yet to testify or provide any documents to the committee, prosecutors wrote.
Prosecutors argued Bannon, 68, deserved the longer sentence because he had pursued a “bad faith strategy” and his public statements disparaging the committee itself made it clear he wanted to undermine their effort to get to the bottom of the violent attack and keep anything like it from happening again.
