House will vote on contempt of Congress resolution for Bannon on Thursday, majority leader says

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has officially announced that the full House will vote on Thursday on the contempt of Congress resolution for Steve Bannon.

“In a shameful rejection of the search for truth, for facts, and for ways to protect our democracy in the future, Mr. Bannon has refused to abide by a subpoena and answer questions before the Committee,” Hoyer said in a statement.

CNN reported earlier today that the vote would happen on Thursday.

What would happen next:
Following the full House vote, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to certify the report to the United States attorney for the District of Columbia. Under law, this certification then requires the United States attorney to "bring the matter before the grand jury for its action," but the Justice Department will also make its own determinations for prosecution.

As severe as a criminal contempt referral sounds, the House's choice to use the Justice Department may be more of a warning shot than a solution. Holding Bannon in criminal contempt through a prosecution could take years, and historically, criminal contempt cases have been derailed by appeals and acquittals.

Rudy Giuliani is having another normal one
Aldous J Pennyfarthing

Apparently, Rudy Giuliani just discovered video filters. Specifically, he found the Planet of the Apes Cornelius filter and added a stovepipe hat. Or maybe it’s Abraham Lincoln. I don’t know. The last thing I want to do is try to get into Rudy’s head. I imagine it’s a little like visiting a Jaycees haunted house inside a beluga whale’s uterus—only marginally more disorienting.

So, yeah, Rudy’s having another normal one today, and he wants to make sure Virginians vote against Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the upcoming gubernatorial election.

So Ol’ Man Fiddle-Crotch thought this was a good idea:

TTM note: House Rules Committee hearing today regarding the Thursday full Senate vote on Bannon charge......

Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz ride to Steve Bannon's defense—and get so, so roasted
Mark Sumner

On Wednesday, the House Rules Committee met to vote on whether the recommendation for charges of criminal contempt against former Trump campaign chair and January 6 conspirator Steve Bannon would be forwarded to the full House. At the end of the hearing, the committee voted along party lines, which means that the full House could vote to drop Bannon’s file on the Department of Justice by Thursday.

Despite the party line vote, with every GOP member on the committee voting to surrender Congress power to conduct any form of executive oversight, there was at least one Republican present who disagreed. That’s because the vice chair of the House Select Committee, Liz Cheney, sat down to explain what makes Bannon’s documents and testimony vital. According to Cheney, it appears that Bannon, “had substantial advance knowledge of the plans of January 6 and likely had an important role in formulating those plans." And, more than anything else, Bannon simply, “has no legal right to ignore the committee's lawful subpoena.”

That last point seems like something that should gather universal support from any member of Congress. After all, if it's not possible to subpoena someone who worked for a former administration, and who holds no official position, exactly how much power does Congress have to compel testimony from anyone? But that reasonable position ignores the fact that the GOP part is actually the TOT party. As in Terrified Of Trump. So Republican leadership gave all members the word before the hearing to cast their inconsequential votes in favor of a powerless Congress.

But before that vote was cast, the committee had to listen to two defenders who charged in to uphold the right of Steve Bannon to plan the downfall of the nation and thumb his nose at consequences — Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan. And that appearance … was kind of hilarious.......
