Steve Bannon's broad use of executive privilege got him a subpoena on the spot from the House Intelligence Committee
by Nathan'ette Burdine: January 17, 2018

Steve Bannon has done it again! And by it I mean let his mouth write a check his ass can’t cash.

Bannon spent over nine hours before the House Intelligence Committee telling them he couldn’t answer questions about Donald J. Trump Sr., Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, or anything dealing with Trump before and during his presidency because of executive privilege.

That of course led to Republicans and Democrats telling Bannon to kiss where the sun don’t shine.

CNN’s Manu Raju told Anderson Cooper that Bannon’s broad use of executive privilege led to the House Intelligence Committee serving Steve Bannon a subpoena “on the spot” during his testimony.

And Rep. Mike Conway (R-TX), who is over the House Intelligence Committee’s probe on Russia, let Steve Bannon and his lawyer know that subpoena isn’t going away.

For one, Bannon can’t use executive privilege because he has already snitched on Donald Trump to Michael Wolff who put all the juicy details in his book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Bannon talked about Trump and his family worse than folks talk about the child of God.

Bannon talked about Don Jr. like he’s a mitch (male bitch). Let Bannon tell it, just a look from Special Counsel Robert Mueller would make Don’t Jr. “crack like an egg.”

Bannon also took time to tell Wolff how he really feels about the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump.

Bannon was so overjoyed that Trump listened to him and not his daughter about the Paris Climate Accord that Bannon said, “The bitch is dead.”

Mm-hmm, that’s what Bannon said about Trump’s favorite child he had with Ivana Trump. Mm-hmm.

Needless to say, Trump has had enough of Bannon. Bannon embarrassed Trump on the national stage by getting him to support a man, Roy Moore, whose alleged pedo ways got him ban from a local mall.

Moore ended up doing what many folks knew he would do, which is to lose. Moore’s loss made history because it became the first time in over 20-years that a Democrat won the senate seat in the Republican district.

That embarrassment, along with the Time Magazine cover, Bannon’s fight’s with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and Michael Wolff’s book was the last straw for Donald Trump.

Trump let Bannon know that he’s no longer his political boy when he branded him with the nickname, “Sloppy Steve,” and blamed him for letting Michael Wolff inside the White House.

Seeing that he had burnt his britches, Bannon tried making amends by apologizing. He said that he really wasn’t calling Don Jr. “treasonous” and that his comment was really about how Ronald Reagan push back on the Russians and the Uranium One deal Hillary Clinton did with the Russians when she was the secretary of state.

Mm-hmm, that’s what Bannon said. But y’all see, Bannon can’t get around the fact that he was present during the transition when Michael Flynn was doing all of his alleged wrong doing with the Russians and other foreign governments.

Like Bannon, Flynn tried using executive privilege but that shit didn’t work with Mueller. After Mueller got a hold of Flynn, Flynn decided it’ll be best for him to turn state evidence.

Flynn doesn’t want to take his little body to the big house with the big boys. He knows what will happen. Mm-hmm, how you doing?! What yo’ name is?! Is how that will go.

So Michael Flynn has joined pretty boy George Papadopoulos in telling Robert Mueller everything he knows about Trump and Russia.

Yup, that executive privilege doesn’t amount to a hill of beans when a person is trying to use his privilege as a get out of jail free card with Robert Mueller.

Now there are folks like Joshua Green, author of Devil’s Bargain and political analyst on CNN, who believe Steve Bannon is trying to get back in Donald Trump’s good graces by exerting executive privilege where he obviously can’t exert it.

But I fall along the line of Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci who told everybody during his 10-day tenure as the White House Chief of Staff that Bannon is a guy who will “”suck his own dick” in order to get off.

In other words, Bannon is going to do whatever he has to in order to make himself feel good. It’s all about Bannon.

Just look at that Time Magazine cover and how happy Bannon was when folks like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough were calling him Donald Trump’s brain.

And I’m sure y’all have seen Saturday Night Live with Bannon as the grim reaper telling Trump what he should do. Bannon enjoyed folks thinking he was more than what he truly is.

Now, the hood has been lifted and folks see that Bannon is just another snitching mitch who will use folks to get what he wants.

You can’t trust a snitching mitch! And somebody like Bannon, who “The Mooch” said was leaking info about the Trump administration, is a snitching mitch who is going to do what’s best for him. And what’s best for him is to not go to prison.

The one thing Robert Mueller has proven is that he has a Ph.D. in applying psychological pressure to witnesses to the point that they “crack like an egg.”

And the one thing a snitching mitch like Steve Bannon is going to do after Robert Mueller gets a hold of him is to “crack like an egg.”
