‘I Think We’re Going to Get Criminal Charges’: Steve Bannon Slams Biden’s DOJ, FBI


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Top-rated podcaster and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon said on his Friday program that the top officials at the Justice Department and the FBI are liable to be indicted on “criminal charges.”

Bannon’s comments came on the heels of the first prime-time hearings of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked Jan. 6 Committee, which he slammed for spewing lies and misinformation.

“I think we’re going to get criminal charges against [FBI Director Christopher] Wray and [U.S. Attorney General Merrick] Garland and all of those hacks over there,” Bannon said.

“They’re inundated with whistleblowers from the FBI. Patriots, hard-working patriots are blowing these guys up,” he continued. Thousands of whistleblowers.  Thousands. Let me underline that .. on the maleficence and politicization of the America Gestapo, the FBI.


“I don’t care if the FBI doesn’t like it. You’re a Gestapo, you’re an American Gestapo. You’re going to be taken apart brick by brick.  Whether we need a federal agency like that, that’s for people to decide. But you are going to be deconstructed. Because the rot that you have, and we should have done it after 9-11, let’s be honest,” he continued.

Ahead of the Jan. 6 panel’s “prime-time” hearings on Thursday, the committee hired a TV executive, former ABC News President James Goldston, to “produce” them for the home audience, according to Fox News’ White House correspondent Chad Pergram.

“Fox has confirmed that the committee investigating last year’s riot at the Capitol has hired former ABC News President James Goldston to ‘produce’ the slate of hearings scheduled for this month. Fox is told Goldston will have a hand in all of the hearings this month,” Pergram wrote on Twitter.


“But Goldston will be particularly involved in the efforts by the committee to make its prime-time hearing Thursday and another one later this month ‘TV friendly.’ Fox is also told that the actual witness list for the hearing will come in the next day or two,” he added.

“However, the committee will intersperse various portions of taped depositions, new audio/videotape and never-before-seen footage from inside the Capitol on the day of the riot,” Pergram concluded.


Earlier in the week, Rep. Adam Schiff, one of the most dishonest Democrats in Congress, said his party would present a “comprehensive narrative” at the prime-time hearings.

“Our goal is to present the narrative of what happened in this country, how close we came to losing our democracy, what led to the violence,” he told Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” adding: “Americans I think know a great deal already — they have seen a number of bombshells already [and] there’s a great deal they haven’t seen. But perhaps the most important is the public has not seen it woven together, how one thing led to another.”
