Indicted Bannon Can’t Be Pardoned By Trump This Time

Andrew Weissmann calls Bannon’s indictment on state charges for defrauding Trump donors in the border wall scheme a “rock crusher” and discusses the potential prison time Bannon faces in New York and in D.C. for contempt of Congress. “The Trump universe is populated by grifters,” says Tim O’Brien, who weighs in on the parallels Trump and Bannon.

  1. Just like the 2nd coming all hype no show he is a yt rich old guy he won't do anytime he'll go to a white collar retreat w tennis courts n no fences . Like Martha Stewart… or the lawyers will come up with a sweet deal that no average joe will ever get for half the $#!^ this individual has done ..

  2. Is a greasy grifter something he had for breakfast? Every single one of those police officers guarding Bannon are overweight. I guess they don’t need to run to catch Bannon anyways

  3. Absolutely fantastic. I hope he receives the maximum time allowed by the courts. Bannon is just as smug as Trump is! Both deserve long-term prison sentences.

  4. Let's hope he is found guilty and the sentences are long, tough and consecutive.
    The man is a nut case who has done so much harm to so much of the US, the world and to so many.

  5. But of course, Trump and his allies, did and will keep on making a profit out of the dream they have sold to the people. Just take a look at how people react to the Donald during his rallies! it doesn't matter what they still buy it!!!

  6. Everyone surrounding Trump seems to be criminal. How could the God Father not be? Trump is a criminal genius con man who may eventually become dictator. The Republican party has become a cult. They don't care about democracy because only so many people care about tax cuts for the rich. The only path to power for them is dictatorship. Gerrymandering and installing toadies to fix elections is the best they can do. The electorate be damned, as it was in 2020. If Trump returns to power in 2024, democracy in America is dead.

  7. Steve Bannon the dingleberry on the backside of democracy 💩💩💩💩🤣🤣🤣🤣he can always be penpals with the tangerine toddler once the biggest grifter goes to prison 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  8. Let this sink in-Bannon rips off trump supporters. Then Trump pardoned Bannon. Trump supporters still support Trump. I really don’t understand those idiots.

  9. Boy criminal trump would look just as good as dirty looking bannon in handcuffs that would be awesome 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯

  10. Only the president or the judge in court can pardon you, from severe crimes. To get the judge to do it, you have to deliver your former boss head on a plate a.s.a.p, before she change her mind.


  12. Steve Bannon the garbage rat in handcuffs, now do the same to his partner in crime djt.
    PUT djt in handcuffs and LOCK HIM UP
    I don't care that he was once a president.

  13. Is about time this people started paying for their crimes. I know the day of reckoning will come for this people. It was just a matter of time. He thought that he would get away with it by running his mouth spewing lies to his maga people who I think should be sitting in jail with him and their occult leader Donald. May God save your soul in jail.

  14. This was one of the finest in the orange clowns administration !! They all need to be held accountable including those that still sit in our government that were and continue to be undermining our Democracy !! We need to be voting all these republicans out of our government
    Remember a republican = a liar and a fear monger !!

  15. he is the same guy that said that he stand for the constitution and triump ? I guess he sure stand the conversation and stay away from donald triump.. 😏😏😏🤣🤣🤣…

  16. Does the fact that all the many large colonies of innocent living organisms, which are thriving on Bannon's face, now must go to jail with him make this a mass incarceration?

  17. Fun fact – Bannon’s partners in crime all plead guilty earlier this year. Brain Kolfage agreed to repay $17mil dollars. When Bannon was pardoned he left his buddies to twist in the wind. I’m sure they’ll HAPPILY testify against him.

  18. If the penalty for this type of crime is 5 to 15 yrs, why didn't Trump face the same punishment when he defrauded a kids-cancer charity by funneling the money into the Trump organization and spend it in luxury items? … why is Trump allowed to break the law over and over without any consequences whatsoever!!

  19. So… how many people around Trump have fallen victim to crimes now? Yet, the MAGA crowd still thinks Trump is the savior of this country? I don't get it. Everyone is apparently a criminal around him but NOT Trump? That thought process is insane

  20. Bannon Trump and his whole regime including a number of Republic Senator's need to be indited and tried in the courts for their party in many of Trump's crimes the DOJ and the Democrats need to stand strong and stop the rot in American justice that Trump and his republican criminals have tried to cement in permanently Trump must face a prison sentence of at least twenty years for his multiple crimes against America and it's people .No more lies no more criminal action from the GOP it must be taken down the whole rotten house of Trump and his cronies .

  21. Maybe it's time to cancel this 'Presidential Pardon' law … Or at least amend the law as necessary in order to prevent abuse of power by the likes of Trump.

  22. The smart Americas that did their own research already knew they stolen that money, Even ALL the donations and charities as well as the scam apps. Yet now they are looking into it years later.. They all need to be held accountable, ALL!!!!!
