Democrats Go For Trump Allies With Extreme Punishments

The DOJ is suggesting an unusually harsh sentence for Steve Bannon, who was charged of contempt of Congress earlier this year when he ignored a subpoena issued by the committee of January 6th. The federal government wants Bannon to serve six months of prison time and pay a $200,000 penalty, according to the sentencing memorandum.

The DOJ’s sentence demand surpassed predictions that Bannon would spend 30 days or less in jail. In these circumstances, six months is almost unheard of.

In fact, criminal prosecution for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena is almost unheard of. It wasn’t long ago that Obama administrators Eric Holder and Lois Lerner both refused GOP-controlled subpoenas. Despite criminal referrals, and in the case of Holder, despite a high number of Democrats voting to hold him in contempt, the DOJ never even considered pursuing the issue criminally.

Yet, once again, Dems have opted to modify the rules in order to gain political advantage. That means Republicans must ensure that they are equally implemented. Unless an asteroid hits Earth, the Republicans will retake control of the House of Representatives in January. The investigations must begin quickly, and subpoenas must be distributed like candy. Dare Democrats and their political operators to fail to appear and account for their corruption. If they don’t, send the criminal referrals to the DOJ and hold them accountable for the new standard they set.

Furthermore, once Republicans win the White House and, by extension, the DOJ, none of this should be forgotten. Officials for Biden have claimed that executive privilege does not belong to past presidents. At that time, Biden alums must also be subjected to the same standards as those within Trump’s orbit. Allow the subpoenas to be issued, and let the prosecutions pile up if they do not appear. After this, the only way ahead is to try to reset some type of mutually certain destruction.
