Joe Biden’s Radical and corrupt DOJ has been going after any and all who oppose the Left. But now it seems that they can be stopped.

Because Speaker Johnson has hit Biden’s DOJ with a huge blow that has sent them reeling.

House Speaker Mike Johnson has announced that the House of Representatives will file an amicus brief in support of Steve Bannon’s appeal to the Supreme Court.

Bannon, a former advisor to President Donald Trump, is appealing his conviction for contempt of Congress after he ignored a subpoena from the January 6th Committee.

In a Fox News appearance on Tuesday, Johnson spoke to Sean Hannity, revealing the House’s plans.

“We’re working on filing an amicus brief in his appellate work there in his case because the January 6 Committee was, we think it was wrongfully constituted, we think the work was tainted, we think that they may very well have covered up evidence and maybe even more nefarious activities,” Johnson said.

Johnson’s statements reflect a broader sentiment within the Republican Party that the January 6th Committee, which was set up to investigate the events surrounding the Capitol riot, was illegitimately constituted and biased.

Johnson indicated that GOP House members have been investigating the committee’s conduct and believe it may have violated House rules.

“We’re looking into the manner in which this committee was put together, and we have serious concerns that it was not only partisan but fundamentally flawed in its procedures,” Johnson added.

This assertion underlines the GOP’s long-standing criticism of the committee, which they argue was a political tool used by Democrats to target Trump and his allies.

The planned amicus brief by the House GOP is expected to bolster Bannon’s appeal to the Supreme Court.

This move follows a resolution pushed by the House Freedom Caucus and other GOP members to rescind the subpoenas issued by the January 6th Select Committee.

The resolution aims to withdraw the recommendations finding Bannon, Mark Meadows, Daniel Scavino Jr., and Peter Navarro in contempt of Congress.

Bannon filed an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court last Friday, seeking to overturn his conviction and four-month prison sentence for contempt of Congress.

Johnson’s support could provide significant legal and political backing for Bannon’s case.

The House Freedom Caucus and other Republicans have been vocal in their opposition to the January 6th Committee’s actions.

The resolution to rescind the subpoenas and contempt charges reflects a broader GOP strategy to challenge the legitimacy and findings of the committee.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a key figure in the House Judiciary Committee, has criticized the committee’s methods and intentions.

“The January 6th Committee was nothing more than a partisan witch hunt aimed at discrediting President Trump and his supporters,” Jordan said. “We need to ensure that such abuses of power are not repeated.”

Bannon’s case is part of a larger legal and political battle surrounding the January 6th investigation. The GOP’s efforts to support Bannon and other Trump allies highlight their determination to counter what they perceive as politically motivated prosecutions.

Legal experts note that an amicus brief from the House GOP could carry significant weight in Bannon’s appeal.

“The support of House Republicans, particularly the Speaker, could influence the Supreme Court’s consideration of the case,” said legal analyst Robert Barnes. “It signals a high level of political and institutional backing for Bannon’s arguments.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson’s announcement of an amicus brief in support of Steve Bannon’s appeal underscores the Republican Party’s ongoing efforts to challenge the legitimacy and findings of the January 6th Committee.

By questioning the committee’s constitution and actions, and supporting Bannon’s legal battle, the GOP aims to protect its allies and counter what it views as politically driven investigations.

The outcome of Bannon’s appeal could have significant implications for the broader political landscape, particularly as the nation approaches the 2024 presidential election.

As Republicans continue to push back against the January 6th Committee’s work, the legal and political battles over the Capitol riot and its aftermath are far from over.
