Steve Bannon was called on to testify in front of the House 1/6 committee. He has made a fight about it, eventually being arrested for his refusal to comply with a subpoena. Some insiders think that Bannon would be happy to serve time for the benefit of his career.The 1/6 Commission also wants to talk to Alex Jones. Jones, who is dealing with a multitude of legal issues has said he would appear, but plans on pleading the 5th. His reasoning? He doesn’t want to go to jail.
And while Jones has made a different decision than Bannon, the former Trump campaign manager effusively praised the decision.
Bannon said on his War Room Pandemic program:
“The Alex Jones. By the way, one of the smartest guys around on the topic of transhumanism, Alex Jones has been on this for a while. Very, very, very smart. We’re going to be doing a lot more about transhumanism this week and particularly this weekend with our own Joe Allen and others. But Alex Jones has – just gave a great interview the other day to — and really went through transhumanism. So, when you hear that Alex Jones is taking the fifth or people are tweeting that out or you see it somewhere? Make sure you take time. Listen to all five minutes and 30 seconds and then give it to your friends and let them hear what Alex Jones has got to say about his logic.”
