Steve Bannon isn’t showing any outward signs that he feels the repercussions from the attack on the Capitol on January 6th, or from his refusal to cooperate with the investigation. In fact, as he awaits his court date on his indictment for refusing to comply with a Congressional subpoena, he’s still carrying on election disinformation on his podcast.
One year after the attack on the Capitol Building, not quite two months after Bannon’s arrest for refusing to testify before Congress to share any information he has about the lead-up to the attack, including what the then-President might have known and any role he may have had, and six months until his court date for the same, Bannon showed no sign of being worried about what consequences he might face, instead declaring again that Donald Trump won the election (side note: Donald Trump did not win the 2020 election) and promising, “We’re not going to stop one second, okay? In every state, we’re going to decertify this election.”

Notably, there’s also no sign that two sitting Members of Congress, Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene, felt any discomfort or concern about sitting on camera with Bannon while he again promised to overturn the election, one year after the violent coup attempt that failed to do so.
According to the Washington Post, Bannon, along with Trump’s personal attorney at the time, Rudy Giuliani; John Eastman, who authored the coup memo laying out how Biden’s win could be overturned; and others, was a regular presence in the ‘Command Center’ set up in the Willard Hotel in D.C., where Trump allies could meet to work out methods that might reverse the outcome of the 2020 election.
