Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon had another hearing in Washington DC court on Wednesday, as DOJ’s investigation regarding the January 6 incident at the Capitol moves forward.
After his hearing, Bannon was approached by a group of reporters. One in particular, Scott MacFarlane from local CBS, got into a sparring match with Bannon over his stance on the 2020 election and the events that took place on Jan. 6.
“This has nothing to do with January 6. That was all noise. What is essential in my work is taking down the illegitimate regime of the Biden administration and I do it every day. I do not consider them legitimate,” Bannon told MacFarlane.
“I’ve said this many times. I think this election on November 3rd was stolen. And I’ve gone out publicly day after day after day. Number two, to make sure this November by an overwhelming vote we destroy the Democratic Party as a political institution. Which we will do.”
MacFarlane then pushed back: “‘Destroy’ may be troubling in the wake of January 6.”
“No, no, no, no… I said at the ballot box. You’ve seen all the polling. You’ve seen how we’re doing in South Texas among Hispanics. You’ve seen how we’re doing against African Americans. The illegitimate regime’s polling is at all-time lows. So don’t put words in my mouth and don’t try to spin it, I said at the ballot box, overwhelming, and we’re going to take a 100 seat majority,” Bannon fired back.
