The NY AG says is it friggin Christmas in January? Bannon can be charged under state laws.
 
2021-01-19 11:16:19 PM  
His victims were mostly wealthy Trumpers. They had it coming.

I mean, just look at what they were wearing.
 
2021-01-19 11:20:44 PM  
They'll get him on state charges
 
2021-01-19 11:25:41 PM  
Also, to what degree was he involved in 1/6? Pardon doesn't seem to cover that.
 
2021-01-19 11:26:02 PM  
Jebus, from the pic in noodle news he'll be dead in two months anyway.
 
2021-01-19 11:26:04 PM  
Its what the rubes he stole from deserve
 
2021-01-19 11:27:03 PM  
Yeah, but does he get to keep the yacht?
 
2021-01-19 11:27:25 PM  
Can we just get this over with?  His snowflake ass is probably going to announce all of these as he heads out the door to get on a plane leaving the country.

Pretty sure we could just get him on a DUI if we tried hard enough.
 
2021-01-19 11:29:49 PM  
Honestly I think it would be funny if Trump pardoned him from grifting his supporters for a wall. Just chef's kiss.
 
2021-01-19 11:29:55 PM  
Just shows if you get your lips back on Trump's ass long enough, all is forgiven. Isn't that right Ted Cruz?
 
2021-01-19 11:30:03 PM  
"Despite their falling out in recent years, Trump was eager to pardon his former aide after recently reconnecting with him as he helped fan Trump's conspiracy theories about the election."

I guess Bannon really knows how to work the shaft because of all his experience with self-fellatio.

How is Steve Bannon always the ugliest man I've ever seen AND uglier than the last time I saw him?

That is an objectively hideous man.
 
2021-01-19 11:30:27 PM  
It was an act of kindness for hundreds of people. Federal prison smells bad enough without Steve Bannon coppin' a squat in there.

Somebody dug up Chris Farley?

Big surprise. To no one.
 
2021-01-19 11:32:00 PM  
So did Diaper Don get his 10% for the wall grift?

Well thank goodness that if anyone knows how to deal with corrupt racketeers, is the SDNY federal district.  Next year is gonna be a banner year for court journalists
 
2021-01-19 11:32:57 PM  
Sorry, matey, you gotta name the actual crimes he's guilty of in order to pardon him of them.
 
2021-01-19 11:33:56 PM  
There are very, very few reasons to even have a Presidential pardon and it's constantly abused like Lindsey Graham in the basement of the Man Hole in a gimp suit.
 
2021-01-19 11:34:05 PM  
Yeah, he was just cheating people out of money.  What's the big deal?  It's called doin' business back in New York.

Ford didn't. This pardon bullshiat is the wild west,
 
2021-01-19 11:35:25 PM  
So Fascist Falstaff swindles MAGA hats who wanted the wall built. And for this, the Flim Flam Führer pardons him.

More proof, not that it will get through the thick skulls it needs to penetrate, that the Flim Flam Führer doesn't give a damn about his base.

TwilightZone: Pretty sure we could just get him on a DUI if we tried hard enough.


I think he's already been dinged for that, there's pics floating around online of Bannon sitting in his car and it has what looks to be an interlock device installed in it.
 
2021-01-19 11:37:27 PM  
So, isn't that mean he's auto guilty? He doesn't get to 'keep' all the fraud does he? Just seize everything he owns now. I can't imagine that if someone murdered and robbed someone, and he gets pardoned, the suspect gets to keep the money? Does pardon derp run that deep?
 
2021-01-19 11:37:37 PM  
Does Trump understand that when he accepts the pardon he can be compelled to testify against Trump?
 
2021-01-19 11:38:43 PM  
One shiat heel getting a pardon is one thing. I seriously doubt this lazy arsehole will actually sign a hundred pardons. I've signed a hundred documents in a day and it is a long boring grinding day. No way he sits still long enough for that.

Ford had his reasons, but his action was reckless and wrong and violated his oath of office.

/not like we seem to g.a.s. about that any more.

Didn't know he needed one.
 
2021-01-19 11:40:52 PM  
It is only amusing because he is being let off for scamming conservative donors.

One of the reasons the Ford pardon was never challenged, and the reason it's not comparable to other pardons, was the overall sense that anything Nixon may have done was an extension of his powers and duties as president. You'll never make the same argument about anyone else.
 
2021-01-19 11:41:59 PM  
Obvious that he knows things. Anyone pardoned by Trump is someone who knows things or has something to offer in exchange and Bannon has nothing to offer except silence. Nothing Donald every does is for any benefit but his own.
 
2021-01-19 11:42:59 PM  
One concern that had stalled debate over the pardon was Bannon's possible connection to the riot of Trump supporters at the US Capitol earlier this month, a source familiar with the discussions told CNN.
"All hell is going to break loose tomorrow," Bannon promised listeners of his podcast -- "War Room" -- on January 5, the day before the deadly siege on the Capitol.
The day after Bannon's comments, Trump urged supporters to go to the Capitol because the election "was stolen from you, from me and from the country."

/It's almost like they knew something bad was gonna go down...

And some of these folks that are going to end up with state charges anyway, including Trump, are probably going to wish they ended up in federal prison instead of state prison.

No, that's Race Bannon.  The article is about Racist Bannon.

Not gonna lie, this is far less extreme than I anticipated. kinda disappoint.
 
2021-01-19 11:46:02 PM  
Good.  The Bad News Bears were really struggling in his absence.

He's also got skin cancer, by the looks of things. Or his rotten soul is starting to eat it's way out. What a pity. Anyway...
 
2021-01-19 11:49:01 PM  
Bannon is denied the opportunity to become state's evidence?
 
2021-01-19 11:50:12 PM  
FTFA: "Things shifted in recent months as Bannon attempted to breach Trump's inner circle once again by offering advice before the election and pushing his false theories after Trump had lost. "

So Bannon disses the Trumpspawn, gets kicked to the curb, fleeces some rubes for millions of dollars, and then weasels his way back into Trump's inner circle to get pardoned?

No one ever said he's dumb.

Is that some sort of devil's mark on the side of his face?  Is his sinful, tainted soul trying to escape from that point on his head?

He should get that removed before it turns into cancer and eats his face.

Presidents can sign documents via Autopen.  Trump does not need to physically handle the documents at all.

It's not like the chicken pox; he CAN get dinged again.  Come to think of it, even chicken pox comes back they just call it shingles.
 
2021-01-19 11:55:34 PM  
Good. Subpoena his ass, and no taking any of that 5th amendment bullshiat. You lie under oath or refuse to answer and your ass is in for perjury charges.

Out of the frying pan and right in to the fire.
