Morning Joe: Bannon tried to 'overthrow the US government.'

Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC's Morning Joe, accused Steve Bannon of playing a central role in planning and carrying out the Jan. 6 insurrection early this morning.

 

New reporting by several mainstream news organizations suggests Steve Bannon played a key role in the "command center" set up at the Willard Hotel, where he was joined by Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik, and conservative legal scholar John Eastman to plan overturning the 2020 Presidential election results.

This could be a significant turning point in Steve Bannon's criminal referral to the Justice Department for contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena. Suppose the Department of Justice impanels a grand jury. In that case, it could lead to more severe charges for Bannon and could lead to criminal indictments for several Republican members of Congress, former White House staffers and Rudy Giuliani for their involvement in planning and inciting the January 6th insurrection…. According to Scarborough this morning…

"Well, he exhausted all possibilities, that made all the difference in the world because the former vice president who he had known and looked up to -- there is nothing you can do, you have one option, and that one option is to go ahead and certify the votes. You don't have the power; you do not have it. This is after Mike Pence made that fateful decision and followed the Constitution of the United States of America. It set the Willard 'war room' ablaze. They were angry trying to figure out what they could do and therein lies, the importance of Steve Bannon and the reason why Steve Bannon is ignoring a subpoena and defying a congressional subpoena."

"He's at the center, and it looks like he's at the center of this riot. He predicts the riot, plans the riot and plans the riot with Rudy Giuliani and everybody else around him. Let's just get this straight -- a little bit of silence here. What he's planning to do? What's Donald Trump planning to do? They're planning to overthrow the United States government by overturning a peaceful election for the first time in the history of the United States of America. That's what Steve Bannon and Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani were in the middle of."
