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:
After he played the clip, Bannon remarked:
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:
Maybe Bannon can content himself with that fact when he’s put in handcuffs and charged with sedition and conspiracy to commit murder.
