(Washington) A parliamentary inquiry into former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who refused to take part in the investigation into the attack on Capitol Hill, began action Thursday to “block the work of Congress.”
Mr. Benon was summoned before this special committee of the House of Representatives on Thursday to investigate the role of the former Republican president, whose supporters were elected against the congressional seat on Jan. 6, when elected officials confirmed Joe Biden’s victory. Presidential election.
But he did not appear before the elect. “Mr. Bannon has refused to cooperate,” said Democrat Benny Thompson, the commission’s chairman, who has been criticized by Donald Trump and his allies.
The Special Commission will not tolerate this neglect of his Saponas, and Mr. for obstructing the work of Congress. We will take action to deal with the criminal charges against Pennan.

Members of the commission will meet Tuesday evening to formally accept the details of their complaint.
It is then to be voted on in the General Session, with the intention that it be sent to the Minister of Justice, in the House where the Democrats are in the majority. Theoretically, Mr. could face up to a year in prison. Merrick Garland will decide whether to convict Penn.
Mr Bannon, 67, was one of the architects of Donald Trump’s successful presidential campaign in 2016 before being ousted by a Republican millionaire. In the last days since the order was issued, the president has given him a condition, ending the case for fraud.
Although he did not hold any official position on January 6, he appears to have spoken to the president about the January 6 struggle in the days leading up to the attack.
In addition to this adviser, four other relatives of Donald Trump have been summoned by the Special Commission for documents or their testimony.
The former president asked them not to comply, using the administration’s right to keep certain information confidential. But for Democrats, this power applies only to the current president.
The legal debate should take place in the courts and reduce the work of the Commission.
