Steve Bannon is coming to testify in investigation into the Capitol storming, right?

Former advisor Steve Bannon to former President Donald Trump still wants to appear before the Congress committee investigating the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. It is not yet clear when and under what circumstances Bannon will testify. He himself would like to be heard in public.

Bannons attorney has sent a letter saying the counselor is bouncing back from his earlier refusal to testify. That refusal brought him to prosecution in November for contempt of parliament, for which he must prevent in July. The political strategist had invoked immunity that advisors to the president enjoy. They dont have to talk about confidential decision-making.

But Bannons lawyer has made public a letter from Trump, in which the former president writes that confidentiality no longer applies to Bannon, so that he can now give his views on the events. Trump is concerned about the committees, in his view, one-sided and biased way of working. Bannon could counterbalance that with his testimony.

โ€œHell will break looseโ€

One of the goals of the Congressional Committee of Inquiry is to find out to what extent then-President Trump was responsible for the storming of the Capitol, which killed four people.

On January 6, 2021, Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, where politicians were working to ratify Democrat Joe Bidens election victory. To this day, large groups of Republican voters believe that the 2020 presidential election did not go fairly, a position that Trump also proclaims.

According to the researchers, Bannon played a role in the storming on several crucial points. For example, he said in a podcast a day before that โ€œhell will eruptโ€ the next day. That would indicate that he had prior knowledge of the expected violence. The parliamentary committee continues with hearings on Tuesday, where those called to come and testify are under oath.
