BUSTED: Bannon Admits On Podcast That He Helped Plot The Jan. 6 Insurrection


Disgraced former White House adviser Steve Bannon may have sealed his own legal fate today when he admitted on his “War Room” podcast that he helped plot the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol which led to the deaths of five people, including a police officer.

On his show Wednesday, Bannon played a clip of Peril authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa explaining how the Capitol riot had been planned prior to the event, with Costa saying during an appearance on MSNBC:

“You look at January 5th, we discovered that Steve Bannon, the former White House strategist, was there at the Willard Hotel blocks from the White House with Rudy Giuliani, having an almost war-room-type meeting with other Trump allies the eve before the January 6th insurrection. And Bannon had actually been in close touch with President Trump for days before January 6th. Based on our reporting, he privately told President Trump to have a reckoning on January 6th. And he said to the president, it’s time to kill the Biden presidency in the crib.”

After he played the clip, Bannon remarked:

“Yeah, because his legitimacy. 42% of the American people think that Biden did not win the presidency legitimately.”

Gee, Steve, why would those people think that? Probably because Trump, Fox News, Newsmax, One America News, and other right-wing outlets repeated that lie over and over again until it took hold among those who couldn’t accept that the majority of the American people had rejected the failures of Trump and were ready to kick him to the curb.

Bannon then tried to cover his ass by suggesting that the Biden administration was imploding:

“It killed itself. Just look at what this illegitimate regime is doing. It killed itself. OK? But we told you from the very beginning, just expose it, just expose it, never back down, never give up and this thing will implode.”

Maybe Bannon can content himself with that fact when he’s put in handcuffs and charged with sedition and conspiracy to commit murder.
