Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is urging his former boss President Donald Trump to hold off on the State of the Union address until after he is acquitted by the Senate following his impeachment by Congress.
Bannon, who hosts the podcast War Room: Impeachment, believes that postponing the address would hurt the efforts of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). He believes that Pelosi is deliberately stalling the impeachment proceedings, in part, to hold it over Trump’s head during the State of the Union.
“Two reasons Nancy Pelosi slow-walked this: One was to find more evidence because they didn’t have it and they’re afraid the guns are going to be turned back on them for a weak case. The second was to make sure she could bigfoot President Trump’s State of the Union. That’s why she slow-walked this whole thing,” Bannon said to reporter Maria Bartiromo while appearing on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures.
“The reason [Trump] called for an expanded witness list was he understands that the jury is not the Senate, the jury is the American people, but the audience is the world. They’re watching on the streets of Taipei, they’re watching in Hong Kong, they’re watching in Tehran, they’re watching to see if the established order can back down Donald Trump,” he added.
Bannon believes that Trump should not proceed with his address until he is formally exonerated in the “trial of the century,” and then the President can make the State of the Union about his vindication following a witch hunt that has lingered on for many years.
“He has to be acquitted; he will be acquitted and exonerated. That should happen, and then he should do the State of the Union,” Bannon said.
In the interview, Bannon also praised President Trump for his foreign policy moves, and his willingness to project American strength throughout the world against malign actors.
“This is the Trump Doctrine, whether it’s in Hong Kong, or at the ballot box in Taiwan, or the streets of Tehran,” Bannon said. “President Trump has stood up to the Chinese Communist Party, the dictators in Beijing, he stood up to the mullahs in Tehran.”
“What President Trump did is go against the established order,” Bannon added. “The permanent political class’s foreign policy was to appease these dictators, to appease Beijing, and that’s why saw the rise of China. To appease the mullahs in Iran, and that’s why you saw this expansion of Iran with Hezbollah throughout the Middle East.”
Bannon believes that Trump’s “economic war” against the globalists will ultimately pay massive dividends for Americans who want to take their country back from the “permanent political class.”
“Donald Trump said, ‘This is not going to happen on my watch,'” Bannon continued. “He’s taken a very Churchillian stand, like Churchill took in the 1930s. It’s the permanent political class, and the John Kerrys, the Hillary Clintons, the foreign policy establishment, the Neville Chamberlains, they were the appeasers. He went to economic war.”
The State of the Union address is scheduled to take place on Feb. 4 unless Trump decides to postpone the event as Bannon has suggested.
Rudy Giuliani Will Testify Before Michigan House Oversight Committee on Electoral Irregularities
His testimony will take place Wednesday.
Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer of President Trump, will be testifying before the Michigan House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.
Michigan state representative and House Oversight Committee Chairman Matt Hall (R) released the following statement on Giuliani’s in-person testimony:
“Election security and transparency are top concerns for people I represent. I have been getting thousands of emails and calls from people regarding this election. Other legislators have also. People have questions and concerns about the election process, the way it was handled and how our future elections could be impacted,” said Hall. “Rumors and hearsay are everywhere and our committee is attempting to get to the bottom of all of it to deliver people answers they deserve.”
“We can go a long way to achieving this by going straight to the top. Mr. Giuliani believes there were many problems with how this election was conducted and has alleged that there was significant fraud in Michigan. I am glad we were able to find time to make this work with the President’s legal team. This is an opportunity for us to get definitive answers – in-person – about Mr. Giuliani’s claims and evidence, while we work to provide clarity and transparency to people who have taken issue with our state’s election system,” Hall added.
Representative Hall also noted that Giuliani had been asked to submit written testimony after “logistical issues” initially prevented him from testifying in-person. But it appears those issues have been ironed out.
Michigan’s House Oversight Committee is comprised of six Republicans and three Democrats.
Giuliani’s testimony is one to pay particular attention to. Big League Politics reporter Shane Trejo has been instrumental in exposing electoral irregularities and suspicious behavior in the state of Michigan. He has discussed what he has seen and heard with Michelle Malkin and One American News Network (OANN), among others:
