We’ve seen these tactics before.
The Maoists used show trials and struggle sessions to punish anyone suspected of wrong-think. These unfaithful enemies of the regime were brought forward and publicly humiliated before they received their punishment. The entire community was forced to watch this process. This was
a warning of what they will face if they dare speak out against the regime.
Now it’s happening in America. And the elites, Big Media, Big Tech, Democrats and establishment Republicans are in on it.
They need to teach the populists a lesson.
This week former Chief Strategist for President Trump is facing a one-sided and biased court in Washington DC. He is charged with not honoring a subpoena from the January 6 Committee. The Jan. 6 Committee is a selected group of Democrats and two Republicans who are running America’s first-ever public struggle sessions.
This week Steve Bannon is the target – as he has been since he first took the job of campaign manager for President Trump.
And the court is allowing the January 6 Committee to use their concocted evidence against Steve Bannon but will not allow Steve Bannon’s team to confront his accusers.
This is the new America under Joe Biden and the Democrat-Socialist regime.
It’s only going to get worse.
If the Bannon case continues, and he is found guilty, it will certainly be appealed, and will likely move its way all the way up the chain to set precedent that stops this from ever happening again.
The gist? The government is using evidence from members of the committee, but members of the committee have invoked the speech and debate clause to quash the defendants ability to call them as witnesses. The judge granted that motion to quash. So, basically the members of the committee will be testifying against Bannon, without Bannon having the ability to cross examine them. More interestingly? They made themselves a party to the case when they filed an amicus brief in support of the charges.
If you want a nice round summary of the case, read here. The judge has taken this motion under advisement.
