    Speaker Mike Johnson announced Tuesday night he has approved the U.S. House of Representative to intervene in Steve Bannon’s contempt case. Bannon was to report to prison on July 1. 

    Johnson told Fox News host Sean Hannity he has authorized the House counsel to file an amicus brief supporting Bannon’s emergency appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

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

    “We've been investigating the committee itself. We disagree with how Speaker Pelosi, put all that together. We think it violated House rules and so we will be expressing that to the court, and I think it will help Steve Bannon and his appeal,” he added.

    Bannon has argued that the January 6 committee abused its authority holding him in contempt.

    There are alot of issues swirling around the January 6 committee starting with the staff director, David Buckley. He was one of the 51 intelligence officials who signed the October 19, 2020 letter suggesting Hunter Biden’s laptop was “Russian disinformation.” At the time the letter was signed, Buckley and Mike Morrell, the former Deputy of the CIA, who orchestrated the letter's signatures, had contracts with the CIA.  

    The genesis of that letter followed a call from Antony Blinken who was with Biden campaign to Morrell after the New York Post published their story on Hunter Biden's "Laptop From Hell" on October 14, 2020. The purpose of the call was to create something so that presidential candidate Joe Biden could refer to the letter during the  October 22 presidential debate, which he did. 

    The committee also hired James Goldston, a documentary producer who had been president of ABC News, and presented what is known in media as “a point of view” documentary series, as earlier reported by CDM in 2022 and 2023.
