BREAKING: Steve Bannon subpoenaed in special counsel's Jan 6 grand jury investigation

Special Counsel Jack Smith is undertaking the investigation.

A federal grand jury has issued a subpoena for Steve Bannon, former Trump advisor and current War Room host, in a case investigating Trump's alleged attempts to retain the presidency after the 2020 election. Special Counsel Jack Smith is undertaking the investigation.

An indictment under the Espionage Act is expected later this week in the case of the Mar-a-Lago seized documents. Two sources familiar with the matter, NBC reports, stated that the subpoena for Bannon, looking for documents and testimony, was issued in May.

This grand jury is looking into Trump's alleged attempts to interfere with the peaceful transition of power. The congressionally enacted Special Committee on January 6 found no evidence that there was an intent to do this. The Committee took years to dig through evidence and was not able to charge Trump with anything at all.

Donald Trump peacefully vacated the office of the presidency at the end of his term, as has every other president in the history of the United States. In the aftermath of the 2020 election, he was diligent in demanding recounts of votes in states where his campaign had misgivings about the ballotting and tabulation process.

Once those suits were complete, Trump continued to state his concern that the election had not been fairly conducted. 

This grand jury is separate from the one convening over the seized Mar-a-Lago documents case and the one in New York convened by DA Alvin Bragg which indicted Trump on 34 counts of felony falsification of documents, which is normally a misdemeanor unless there are extenuating circumstances as Bragg as claimed there are though he has not been forthcoming about what those charges are.

Bannon is facing a court date in March 2024 over contempt of Congress charges on which he was convicted after refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena to hand over documents to the Janaury 6 committee, citing executive privilege. Trump later waived that privilege, but the court went away with the conviction anyway.

Neither the special counsel nor Bannon's attorney offered comment.
