Bannon indicted for refusing to appear despite executive privilege claim

Just The NewsFormer White House advisor Steve Bannon was indicted by a federal grand jury Friday following his refusal to comply with a subpoena by the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Bannon's indictment, just days after the House Committee announced further subpoenas of Trump officials.

"Since my first day in office, I have promised Justice Department employees that together we would show the American people by word and deed that the department adheres to the rule of law, follows the facts and the law and pursues equal justice under the law,” Garland said in a statement obtained by Just the News. "​​Today’s charges reflect the department’s steadfast commitment to these principles.”

To Merrick Garland, equal justice under the law means Republicans get indicted and Democrats don't.
