...QUI PRO DOMINA JUSTITIA SEQUITUR…Bannon & Trump are not above the law Bannon’s Nov 12th INDICTMENT -updated with accurate timeline
the enigmatic Latin phraseology translates to; …who prosecutes on behalf of justice…” this is the DOJ Agency’s motto & contained in the DOJ Agency seal. *see DOJ white paper of the Agency’s seal
QUI PRO DOMINA JUSTITIA SEQUITUR…
DOJ History …who prosecutes on behalf of justice (or Lady Justice)…
As you know most Federal Agencies have an agency seal and motto. This is meant as a touchstone for the hundreds of thousands of public servants. As articulated in this 2008 Ave Maria Law Review by Rafael Alberto Madan 1
If our Country, is truly a “Nation of Laws” and that “no one is above the law, including the President of the United States” then the House Republicans have a reckoning coming. The overwhelming majority of sane and informed Americans love our Country as much as I do, or at least that’s what I want to believe. Hope Springs Eternal, right? Then I beseech you to stop polluting your brain with know-nothing wannabe larping individuals aka the Blue-QANON\

See October 14, 2021 Steve Bannon & Guo Wengui -can we talk about the SEC enforcement action?
Full disclosure I had this draft article in my drafts since early October but I had a little birdie whisper to me to hold off that the USAO-DC was presenting evidence to a Grand Jury -so that’s why I was able to push this article as quickly as I did…
Twitter’s Blue-QANON problem…
The problem is that we have numerous individuals, many of whom are motivated by their own egos and their insatiable thirst to be & stay relevant. Twitter is their drug of choice and like any other junkie they constantly need the adulation of their “followers”. The Blue-QANON have minimal to zero expertise and yet they continue to pontificate on a wide range of topics, of which they know absolutely nothing about.
The Blue-QANON consistently offer zero hard evidence to substantiate their fact-free claims. The falsity of their “claims” are then believed, propagated and amplified by the masses. The Blue-QANON counts on their followers to flood their disinformation so actual provable facts are then drowned out. Thus creating their own disinformation and misinformation ecosystem or colloquially known as an echo-chamber on a feedback loop. This creates a vicious cycle of misinformation that breeds opportunity for those who do not follow the law or understand the law (or procedures of our Government) to operate in these gaps between fantasy and reality.
The Blue-QANON’s consistent attacks on Attorney General Garland, more broadly our DOJ and most offensive the un abating attacks on our Intelligence Community. The Blue-QANON are far worse than QANON. They have falsely portrayed themselves as “part of the intelligence community” or a “real DC Insider” simply because they spent a year or so in Washington DC, over a decade ago. And their unrelenting attacks on our AG, DOJ and our USIC writ large are egregious, unAmerican and unpatriotic. The Blue-QANON attacks are antithetical to real American values. And do immense damage to our Democracy.
And a belated hat-tip to @ImmaculateLoo because I was otherwise occupied with the throbbing from my jaw bone…
I Smoked Steve Bannon With Contempt @BlackKnight10kSteve Bannon has been indicted. Are y'all still trying to fire Merrick Garland or will you shut the fuck up now?
I have been in DC for well over 3 decades, and even I know that I do not “know it all” —Moreover I certainly have never and likely will never debased myself or my research with a GoFundMe, Pateron or any other grift. I have a J-O-B and candidly I’m compensated pretty well for what I do. Having a job means I don’t need to engage in a grift or grifts to supplement my income. Notwithstanding I’m beholden to facts, highlighting (both figuratively and literally) right versus wrong and occasionally calling BS on conspiracy theories and/or the self serving monetization of other people’s research sans proper attribution. I have never preyed on individuals fears or trust. In 2017 I made a public promise to never profit from the hellscape that was Trump’s four years and I intend to keep that promise.
I know that many of my readers might not know how or even where to go look for factual documents. For better or worse that is one task that I have and will continue to provide for the foreseeable future. Meaning that I genuinely believe it’s a “privilege” to help my readers not only find various publicly available documents. I then explain those documents in an uncomplicated and unbiased terms that I assume most individuals can actually understand After all facts matter and those facts stand on their own absent the prolific use of all caps and emojis. Facts do not need extra dressing - facts are facts so let’s dive head first into the facts…
Steve Bannon -Trump’s succubus
I am purposely not embedding Bannon’s video because I do not want to contribute to amplifying his caustic proclamations - Ep 634: Tuesday Special (w/ Maggie VandenBerghe, Ben Berquam and Peter Navarro) -however below is a direct quote of what Bannon said during his Jan5th segment:
It’s not going to happen like you think it’s going to happen. OK, it’s going to be quite extraordinarily different. All I can say is, strap in . . . You made this happen and tomorrow it’s game day. So strap in. Let’s get ready. All hell is going to break loose tomorrow . . . So many people said, ‘Man, if I was in a revolution, I would be in Washington.’ Well, this is your time in history.
November 12, 2021 DOJ announces Indictment of Stephen K Bannon:
By now I’m certain many of you are now aware that earlier today the Department of Justice unsealed the Indictment of Defendant Stephen K Bannon:
“As detailed in the indictment, on Sept. 23, 2021, the Select Committee issued a subpoena to Mr. Bannon… The subpoena required him to appear and produce documents to the Select Committee, and to appear for a deposition before the Select Committee. According to the indictment, Mr. Bannon refused to appear to give testimony as required by subpoena and refused to produce documents in compliance with a subpoena.” -U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves for the District of Columbia
I’d like to draw your attention to the highlights and pretty important details of Defendant Bannon’s Indictment
…domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol…
Yup in plain black and white text -so to those who said it was improper to say Jan6th was a domestic terror attack I now refer you to pages 1-4 of Defendant Bannon’ indictment ..
According to House Resolution 503, the Select Committee's purpose was, in part:
To investigate and report upon the facts, circumstances, and causes relating to the January 6,2021, domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex (hereafter referred to as the "domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol") and relating to the interference with the peaceful transfer of power, including facts and causes relating to the preparedness and response of the United States Capitol Police and other Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies in the National Capital Region and other instrumentalities of government, as well as the influencing factor
..the subpoena required BANNON to appear and produce documents to the Select Committee on October 7,2021, and to appear for a deposition before the Select Committee on October 14,2021…On September 24,2021, BANNON accepted service of the subpoena through his attorney.
Select Committee's subpoena commanded BANNON to appear on October 7, 2021, at l0:00 a.m., at an office in the U.S. Capitol Complex and "produce the things identified on the attached schedule touching matters of inquiry committed to [the Select Committee]" and "not to depart without leave of [the Select Committee]." —The schedule attached to the subpoena identified 17 categories of "documents and communications" that BANNON was required to produce relevant to the Select Committee's authorized investigation of the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol.
…had instructed BANNON.. really important language here…
seven hours after BANNON had defaulted on the production deadline, BANNON, through his attorney, transmitted a letter.. to the Select Committee's Chief Counsel. BANNON's October 7 Letter asserted that BANNON would not comply with the subpoena because former President Donald J. Trump had claimed that the subpoena sought records and testimony potentially protected by executive and other privileges and had instructed BANNON, "to the fullest extent permitted by law," to "(a) where appropriate, invoke any immunities and privileges he may have from compelled testimony in response to the Subpoena; (b) not produce any documents concerning privileged material in response to the Subpoena; and (c) not provide any testimony concerning privileged material in response to the Subpoena."
addressing BANNON's refusal to produce documents or a log of withheld records and his failure to appear for deposition testimony, as required by the subpoena… BANNON had "now willfully failed to both produce a single document and to appear for his scheduled deposition. The Select Committee believes that this willful refusal to comply with the Subpoena constitutes a violation of federal law";
And as you’ll note the USAO-DC now has a Senate approved US Attorney leading the USAO-DC and that’s something of a acute significance
Again you can read the newly unsealed indictment as to Defendant Stephen K Bannon via this DOJ-OPA Link -it is also important to understand the speed in which US Attorney Graves and Attorney General Garland moved in securing an actual indictment - not a criminal complaint but an actual indictment -and for real I’m going dark but I wanted my readers to have unfettered access to the DOJ action against Stephen K Bannon
Updated November 12, 2021 7:59PM important facts being overlooked
This is something most over look - it was a total of 22 days from the House Select Committee on Jan6th to transmit a criminal referral to the DOJ. On October 19, 2021 the House Select Committee voted (unanimously) to send a criminal referral to the DOJ regarding Steven K Bannon
Mathematics isn’t my strong suit;
22 day - 6 days (for weekends)and 1 day (Veterans day)
15 business days to present the evidence to a grand jury to today’s indictment -yet Blue QANON keep attacking AG Garland
And yes I’ll fully acknowledge that I have been a blistering critic of the former “acting” US Attorney DC - As noted (see embedded Senate link) US Attorney Matthew Graves - on September 1, 2021 I noted that the Senate was expected to vote on Graves’ confirmation
See September 1, 2021 Comment which was in response to the following article
Lastly I say this with zero respect intended to the cadre of Blue QANON;
…you people need to shut your filthy fucking mouths and delete your Twitter accounts. You’ve spent months smearing Attorney General Garland and the FBI. Pull you heads out and understand that you Blue QANON are in fact far worse than QANON… you have consistently proven you don’t know a goddamn thing and it’s disgusting how you’ve continued to target the Attorney General and the FBI.
Seriously is your ego that big that you can’t shut the fuck up? Recalcitrant know-nothing fame hungry assholes.
Also note today’s statement regarding Mark Meadows…
