[WATCH] Bannon’s Lawyer Tries to Deflect When Asked if He Had Foreknowledge of Jan 6th Riot

Steve Bannon’s new attorney seems both unprepared and unwilling to talk about accusations that his client knew there would be an attempted insurrection at the Capitol building on January 6th.

David Schoen, whose less-than-stellar client roster includes Donald Trump and the late Jeffrey Epstein, appeared on CNN’s “New Day” and sparred with host Brianna Keilar over executive privilege for more than half of his 20-minute segment. The rest of the time, Schoen deflected over the specifics of the insurrection at the Capitol regarding what Bannon knew and when he knew it.

Schoen was equally unprepared when he was asked about his legal strategy before the CNN host ran a clip of Bannon on January 5th claiming “All hell” was going to break loose the next day. “Are you going to request a trial by jury or — are you going to request a trial by jury or a judge?” Keilar asked.

“I don’t know. I don’t know that yet,” Schoen replied with a forced smile.

Bannon surrendered to federal authorities on Monday after his refusal to appear before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection.
