Just when you thought the Regime’s witch hunt against MAGA couldn’t get any more third world and vindictive:
Stephen K. Bannon is expected to surrender to state prosecutors on Thursday to face a new criminal indictment, people familiar with the matter said, weeks after he was convicted of contempt of Congress and nearly two years after he received a federal pardon from President Donald Trump in a federal fraud case.
The precise details of the state case could not be confirmed Tuesday evening. But people familiar with the situation, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sealed indictment, suggested the prosecution will likely mirror aspects of the federal case in which Bannon was pardoned.
In that indictment, prosecutors alleged that Bannon and several others defrauded contributors to a private, $25 million fundraising effort, called “We Build the Wall,” taking funds that donors were told would support construction of a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Regime is so desperate to go after Steve Bannon, one of the toughest and most influential voices in the MAGA movement, that it is willing to pursue state level charges for the sham fraud case for which he received a federal pardon from Donald Trump (Presidential pardons only apply at the federal level).
Fearless as always, Bannon released the following statement:
“Just days after being swatted three different times by deranged thugs from New York City inspired by the Biden Administration to assassinate me by police, the Soros-backed DA has now decided to pursue phony charges against me 60 days before the midterm election because WarRoom is the major source of the MAGA grassroots movement.
The SDNY did the exact same thing in August 2020 to try to take me out of the election. It didn’t work then, it certainly won’t work now. This is nothing more than a partisan political weaponization of the criminal justice system.
I am proud to be a leading voice on protecting our borders and building a wall to keep our country safe from drugs and violent criminals. The WarRoom show will be more vital, more intense, more urgent, and bigger this time.
They are coming after all of us, not only President Trump and myself. I am never going to stop fighting. In fact, I have not yet begun to fight. They will have to kill me first.”
Bannon’s show “War Room” has emerged as a juggernaut in the MAGA media space, and one can’t help but think that part of the witch hunt against Bannon is intended to shut down this major nerve center of the grassroots MAGA movement. The left’s reaction on Twitter provides some additional insight into the censorious impulse:
Bannon is a threat to democracy clearly… he needs a gag order

P.S. Whether or not Trump and Bannon go to prison, it is absolutely imperative they lose their pulpit. If EVER a gag order was needed, it is now. Their words pose "a clear and present danger" that has already resulted in deaths. Will Bannon be allowed to broadcast from jail? pic.twitter.com/RgsArtfWJA

And so on…
The nonsense prosecutions of Steve Bannon, and expected imminent prosecution of Donald Trump put to rest the pretense that the United States of America is governed by the “rule of law.” Those days are long behind us. The dystopia looming before us is just as oppressive as China, with the charming addition of drag queens to dance on the shreds of the Constitution
You owe the system nothing.
