Former Trump adviser and right-wing podcaster Stephen K. Bannon vowed that disobeying Congress’ charges against him would become an “offence from hell” for the Biden administration, but after court rulings against his proposed defense, legal experts said that his Process could be more of a quick trip through court.

The exchange was a notable demise for the fiercely bombastic Bannon team, which had live-streamed his “We are bringing down the Biden regime” declaration as he surrendered to the FBI in late 2021 on charges of illegally disobeying a regime subpoena House committee investigating January 6, 2021 riot.
