Crooked DOJ Refuses to Drop Steve Bannon Charges – After Presidential Pardon!

Phew! America has dodged another bullet, ladies and gentlemen! And it’s all thanks to Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson including the “Trump Exception” in the US Constitution. The Trump Exception explicitly states that any rights, freedoms, privileges, amendments, rules, regulations, emanations and even penumbras can just be tossed out the window when you’re talking about Donald Trump or his associates.

The latest Trump Exception that we’ve just learned about pertains to presidential pardons. If Donald Trump pardoned someone – it doesn’t count!

That’s what the Department of Justice just announced when it argued before a federal judge that it would not be dismissing its bogus charges against Steve Bannon. Sure, Donald Trump extended a full pardon to Steve Bannon on January 20, 2021. But that doesn’t count! Trump Exception!

You might have been thinking that pardons and commutations of sentences were some sort of special, plenary power reserved solely for the President of the United States in the US Constitution. Yes, that’s normally true. But not under the Trump Exception!

As you probably recall, Paul Manafort was sent to prison under the Trump Exception a few years ago, for not filling out a piece of paperwork with the IRS. That was under an obscure federal rule that’s never been enforced since the 1960s, but under the Trump Exception, Manafort went to prison for it.

Likewise, Gen. Mike Flynn struggled for years with the false accusation that he had lied to the FBI. Even after the Justice Department dismissed the case against Flynn, the federal judge decided that he would act as the prosecutor to keep the case going. Trump Exception!

Sure, that had never happened in any federal case in US history before. But desperate times call for throwing the entire rule of law and all norms and traditions out the window. Donald Trump is just too icky to allow his associates to somehow go unpunished. Just ask the QAnon shaman who’s rotting in federal prison right now for singing a song in the US Senate chambers last January.

 

The Department of Justice is claiming that Steve Bannon defrauded donors of the We Build the Wall Foundation, by collecting a salary for his work with the organization. That was the wildly successful private-sector fundraising effort that built several miles of impenetrable new walls along our southern border. As for the “fraud” that Bannon is falsely accused of committing, it’s totally absurd.

Every single person on planet earth understands that when they make a contribution to a non-profit or a PAC that part of the funds are used to pay staff salaries. The DOJ prosecutors are claiming that because the We Build the Wall Foundation said that 100% of contributions were going toward construction of the wall, every donor was somehow too stupid to understand that that always means “minus expenses for employee salaries and expenses.” So, the charges were bogus from the very beginning.

But now the Department of Justice says that even though Donald Trump pardoned Steve Bannon, they’re going to keep the case going anyway. Wouldn’t want any uppity Trump supporters to think that they’re in charge of their own destiny and have the power to vote for candidates that The Swamp does not like.

Obviously, I’m being sarcastic about the so-called “Trump Exception” and there is no such thing in the Constitution. Everyone should realize that the Department of Justice is deadly serious: They plan to challenge the constitutionality of presidential pardons, based on the fact that they don’t like Donald Trump.

Prosecutors argued, “The pardon granted to Bannon is not a basis to dismiss the Indictment against him.”

Uh… yes, it is. Presidential pardon powers are plenary – meaning they are not subject to review or approval from any other body, any department, any court or any other branch of government. It’s one of the few “plenary” powers that presidents actually have, just as the US Congress has plenary power over interstate commerce. No one can step in and say that a pardon is invalid for any reason – which is why a lot of pardons throughout the years have been protested, but never overturned.

What’s most concerning about the fact that the DOJ is suddenly claiming pardons from Trump are not plenary, is the fact that the judge didn’t simply laugh at the prosecutors and throw tomatoes at them. The judge said he’ll need two weeks to make a decision on whether a pardon actually counts, if it was granted by Donald Trump.

  1. I fell asleep in America last night but woke up in some other country which I can’t quite Identify, with our Constitution being turned inside out, Men that want to be identified as Women, and vice versa, Words matter more than Actions and Deeds, a Pretend President that Spends other peoples money on frivolous expenditures, a shifting of responsibilities of educational institutes bent upon dividing people of color from each other and blaming whiteness as the reason causing hatred and distrust among races, billionaires funneling money into pockets of politicians to sway the Election process and the Media using their Power of persuasion to fill the public’s heads with opinions and false narratives to destroy what’s left of America! A Sad Tale but We will get through this if we persevere and hang tough !

    1. THE DOJ NEEDS LEADERS THAT ARE REAL,NOT FAKE, THAT HAVE BALLS AND PRIDE TO DO THE RIGHT THING. MAINTAIN TRADITION, ALL PARDONS COUNT,REMEMBER THAT ONE DAY WE WILL AGAIN SOON BE IN POWER, AND YOU CAN EXPECT THAT WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING TO AMERICA, AMERICA IS GONNA GIVE YOU BACK IN SPADES. BANK ON IT.

    2. Your feelings reflect mine! We are told, “Call or write your elected officials!” My state, CT, is a democrat leaning state and my efforts to connect with our “lawmakers” are answered with neutral letters that can fit anything one asks about. When they are on the news spouting biased propaganda, how can we hope to have REAL freedom return? I’m hoping the 2022 election will turn the tide, if not CT, most other states!

      1. The Constitution expressly gives the power to pardon to the President. Those in the DOJ refusing to honor any one of President Trumps pardons are not only guilty of violating the Constitution, they are violating the civil rights of those pardoned. Changes must be brought against anyone in the DOJ who refuses or supports the refusal to honor the Presidential Pardon. If these people do not understand what every 4th grader can understand, they need to be removed from their position immediately.

      2. Sadly, now that the new voting rules have been passed by Congress and the national southern border removed and DACA people given voting rights and the mainstream media promoting destruction of our Constitutional rights, Democrats will have about 20 million more votes by November 2022 to ensure ALL Republican candidates for ALL elective office positions across the country – state and federal will lose to Democrats for so many generations, “REAL freedom” as you put it will not be seen again in this country…until there’s a second revolutionary war that returns this country to its people.

      3. I firmly believe they will self destruct and their mail in ballots were regretted after
        the hidden Hunter Biden CCP Ukrain hit after the election. Regrets. Was too late

    3. I have two comments and a statement. The statement is a rhetorical one. How can an American citizen who claims to be a Christian be a Democrat? The Democratic platform removed prayer from its platform and endorses Infanticide. Next the Democrats should switch their name to ACP. AMERICAN COMMUNIST PARTY. Civics class teaches that Russia and China are examples of Strong Socialistic states. The USA has always been a weak Socialistic state. The ACP is a Strong Socialist party with an agenda of a Strong Socialist state. We have to find a way to remove the judges and reform our judicial system. This starts at the local level. Watch out who you vote for in judicial elections.

      1. I agree and I am so proud of you for writing that. The democrats are EVIL to the core as the old saying goes. If they get this voting changed we are doomed. I will be more careful of who I vote for than I have ever been. Well said

      2. Mark hopefully all christians and christian leaders are composing the same question as you
        If a person agrees with the propaganda garbage denying all or part of what we glean out of the BIBLE as truth you refer to and much more they deny CHRIST!

    4. Vinnie, your comments reflect what many millions of real American citizens think. I believe even some of the “illegal citizens” think the same thing. I am an 86 year old retired U.S. Air Force pilot who risked his life on combat missions during the Korean war, several different war-like events, two years in the Vietnam War, and at times I feel sorry that I did those things for more than 20 years just so our Nation could be destroyed such as it is today. Families of my generation, plus families of later generations are mostly responsible for the situation the USA is in today. We wanted our children, grand-children, and great-grand-children to have more education opportunities, better jobs, more wealth, and much more, but we were not careful enough with our desires. Today, our education system, technical and industrial enterprises, respect for our Constitution and laws, news media, and all levels of political status are corrupt. We allowed this corruption to occur because we failed to ensure our country was being governed by responsible, patriotic, and loyal officials. If I had my life to live over again, I would still fight and even die for the USA.

    5. I’m afraid you are right and this won’t be corrected until we have a revolution/civil war. It’s that or the USA gets a divorce and each state becomes it’s own country and from there, they can do whatever they want. We just declare the states bankrupt and start all over again. No more union – after all, we are already not united in any way, shape or form. Start with a fresh slate. Of course it will be near impossible to borrow money because our national debt will be relieved in bankruptcy; but maybe that’s a good thing – learn as our ancestors did – don’t spend what you don’t have. Earn first, spend later.

    6. You are 100% correct!!!!! I don’t know about getting through it. By the time we get through it, it won’t be the United States of America. I am willing to secede from this nation as long as that “moral decent man” and the corruptocrats are in power.

    7. Well stated. This un-American stuff really took hold during the Clinton administration when slick willie was getting his rocks off. And into especially the Obama administration where the race card was burned and Obama administration put this ounce great country back sixty years. I strongly believe that the democratic party should be band from this nation. And anyone in it. Jailed.

  2. Read about Nazi Germany, the start of communism, how socialism began, then look around at today. Anyone besides me frightened? I sure am.

    1. I’m very frightened!
      Came from Cuba in 1964! I was 28 years old, came with my husband and two young children, now I’m 85 y/o. Gave the communist Castro government everything we owned to be FREE! Now, this is communism after 57 years of a beautiful FREEDOM,
      No doubt! That’s exactly what the DemocRATS are doing in our Congress!
      God BLESS AMERICA! MAGA! USA!

      1. You have lived the nightmare and are the best testament to the terrible things happening in this country today. I have faith that the strong in this country will rise up against the tyranny and come back in a position of strength and unity never witnessed by any nation. The problem is that the hairsniffer in chief eould attempt to take credit. It is the Alinsky doctrine.

      2. Look what happened to Rome and other empires. Once they become CORRUPT they can no longer go back to be a country of principles. In order to reverse the process, this country has to start from ZERO again; and even so, the seed will still be there.

    2. I AM ASHAMED OF BEING IN AMERICA AT A TIME WHEN THE EVIL IS PERMEATING THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE INDOCTRINATED DEMONRATIC PARTY OF SCUZZBALLS. A PARDON COUNTSREGARDLESS,THE DEMS ARE LOSING ALL CREDIBILITY THEY MAY STILL HAVE EVEN IN THEIR OWN PARTY. WE WILL NOT TAKE ALL THE BS THEY ARE GIVING US,AMERICA IS SET TO THROW OUT ALL DEMS , AND DISCREDITATION IS COMING FOR THEM, ALL THEIR EVIL WILL BE EXPOSED AND ALL ACOMPLICES WILL BE HELD LIABLE FOR THE HATRED FOR AMERICA THEY HAVE.

      1. You have some Republicans who are voting with Democrats. Rhinos so watch who you are voting for not just Republicans. Make sure they are conservatives. It does make a difference and watch how they vote. It is important to see who’s side they are on and if you agree with the way they voted.

      1. We all need to call the representatives from our districts and let them know what we Americans need them to support when our Amendment rights are at issue. They need to come together to support representatives in their own party like Margerie Taylor Greene instead of allowing the swamp rats to break all the rules. Watching the Piglosi squad run wild and tear down our country is more that scary it’s treasonous.

  3. Unbelievable….who ever thought bullying idiots could make such a mess of our once great country in less than three months?????? Make them go away…..

    1. The Democrats stole the last election through vote fraud and election law violations in at least six swing states, most all of which were controlled by Democrat governors and Attorneys General. They got away with it because no one in authority cared about that, not the courts in those states and not the DOJ and FBI, who claimed to have investigated the charges of vote fraud. Where are the reports of those investigations? Where are the reports of FBI interviews with those who signed affidavits swearing to the vote fraud and illegal activities they witnessed? IMO the FBI who ran these alleged “investigations” are as corrupt as those who participated in the fraud. Not even 4 of the 9 SCOTUS justices would agree to hear the appeals of Trump’s legal teams challenging these lower court rulings to here the appeals by Trump’s lawyers.

      Where is the unanimous outrage of all the Republicans in Congress? The majority of them have kept quiet, some have gone along with Democrats saying that “there was no vote fraud”. Only a few have staunchly condemned the vote fraud and illegal election law violations in these six swing states.

      Now the Democrats are trying to federalize voting laws, change Senate rules and eliminate the “filibuster”, thereby perpetuating vote fraud and turning the U.S. into a one-party nation, ending our republic and democracy.

  4. If the Liberal Socialist Democrats, “the how many votes do we need party,” can change the voting system, that is outlined in the Constitution of the United States of America, to keep power. They can arbitrarily pick and choose who can be pardoned by a Sitting President.

  5. When is everyone going to realize that the Nazis and communists of the democrat party have seized control of our country? From election fraud to government edicts that are not legal the coup is almost complete. Pelosi will soon be in the White House, as she has planned for over a decade. Obama wrecked her plans in 2008. Hillary was to be elected in 2016, and Pelosi had an impeachment all ready for her. Trump and the people ruined that, despite some rigging of votes. She tried her best to oust Trump but nothing worked. Now she has finally succeeded in putting in such weak candidates, by obvious fraud, and can finally seize the White House. Do you really think the national guard was there just for protection from any conservatives? It’s there to support her coup.Just my opinion.

  6. The Nazi genocide of European Jews commenced in early 1930s with Hitler’s order that took away the German Jews’ right to own pets and bicycles. We all now know what was planned by Hitler and his Nazis for the Jews, and the world. The genocide of 6 million Jews because they were Jews, and a war that resulted in 50 million deaths at least, and a devastated Europe, razed to the ground, materially, politically and economically.

  7. I trust the DOJ. the FBI the DHS as much as I trust the DNC and the CCP they are all in the same swamp China owns Bribe em and that’s plain to see there going to keep pushing to divide the country until they start a civil war in America or a race war after the dems take Bribe em out camela will finish what oBUMa started he has his lips tight to camelas ear every day

  8. THEY WILL BLAME EVERYTHING ON TRUMP,BUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW ITS ALL A BUNCH OF BS,LIKE EVERYTHING FROM THE LEFT IS. THE KIDS AT THE NON BORDER ARE SUFFERING BECAUSE THE HARRIS ADM DOESNT KNOW WHAT TO DO. NOW THEY WANT TO DISARM US ALL. WE WILL BE RECEIVING ILLEGALS WITH COVID IN OUR CITIES. THANKS JOE. MEANWHILE THE CNN ERS OF THE WORLD ARE HUSHED UP. IM WAITING FOR IT TO AFFECT ONE OF THEM,TO SEE WHAT THEY SAY THEN. TRUTH 1776

They need to come together to support representatives in their own party like Margerie Taylor Greene instead of allowing the swamp rats to break all the rules.

  9. If it is one thing that I have learned. is that there are certain people that really hate Trump. We have seen the courts wrongly refuse to take any cases of the fraud evidence, we have seen him wrongfully accused by 2 impeachment cases, he has been disrespected by every democratic member of congress. He is still a citizen of what is left of the United States, but there are evil people that refuse to give him that right. yes I do believe we are doomed, and the current administration will destroy what is left of all of our freedoms. I would also like to add that if you are reading this, and you are one of the black people that claimed that you never felt free, then you are going to learn what freedom really is because all of our rights are being taken away. When a president is ignored, it is easy to take away the rights of the people

  10. When Donald Trump won the 2016 election we heaved a sigh of relief because the relentless progression toward dictatorship of the regime of the Marxist Muslim from Mombasa seemed to have been stopped. It is now clear that the stolen election of 2020 has returned Barry and First Tranny Michael to power, this time as dictators behind the throne of The Dotard and Kammie the Chameleon (“Black Woman today, Asian-American tomorrow, maybe Jewish after the Colorado kosher market shooting”). They intend not just the defeat of Donald Trump and his supporters but their extermination, and not just “fundamentally transforming” the United States but deconstructing and destroying it. It is increasingly likely that a second American Revolution and perhaps a second Civil War are going to be necessary if Americans are to recover their freedom and their independence. Down with the dictatorship! Biden (and the puppet masters) delenda est!

They need to come together to support representatives in their own party like Margerie Taylor Greene instead of allowing the swamp rats to break all the rules.

  11. I never thought that in my life time I would see the destruction of America by such haters. Power and greed is all they think about. We have lost our sovereign country as we no longer have a border. My heart aches and I am afraid. Only God can help us now. Get on your knees people.

  12. If the DOJ refuses to honor the pardon of any president they are breaking the law of this country and should be either recalled or disbanded. There is no justice at present time in this country. A jury of the people would not even be necessary to decide this case as even second grade children could understand what a presidential pardon means. It is time for the patriots to go to the streets to restore honesty integrity and justice to this America. If you refuse to stand up for the freedoms that our military uphold in sacrificing their lives we will no longer exist . Remember the passions and actions of the founders of this nation. The time for ACTION is NOW

  13. The Supreme Court damn well better start upholding the Constitution, it’s their job, there is no rational excuse for them to be setting on their collective ass doing nothing about election fraud and this kind of activity from the DOJ!

  14. The DOJ turned into The DOC, “Department Of Corruption” quite awhile ago. We can now pray that former military and militias go after these scumballs and put them in a holding facility like they have been doing on our southern border. They have decided upon their own to circumvent our system. These individuals with racists in our government that say they refuse to support appointments of whites, like that biyotch in Hawaii should have been forced to resign as soon as they made that comment with no salary/retirement and all bank accounts confiscated and put back into the Social Security funds. The illegally installed government need’s to be overturned, and the Biden Invaders need to be sent back south. Re-install our “President In Exile”, Donald J Trump.

  15. Seems to me that we have put partisan judges in office. Deplorable. Why has this gone unchecked for so long. When our country’s constitution was being dismantled, where was everyone? Unbelievable.

    1. One of the things that we all seem to be forgetting is that the msm has not reported on all this deplorable junk. Of course we know why and who controls them. If we could figure out a way to stop the msm, then something a bit closer to the truth could possibly make it out to the public. Msm has purposely kept America in the dark regarding all the crap that has been going on behind our backs. We now must make them accountable, but I can’t figure out how.

  16. What a sad commentary on life. Bannon was fully pardoned! I wonder what the history books will make of this debacle. Greedy so called human beings taking over the country all for power and money. Look what they have done to the USA, which can no longer be called that because we are no longer united. The democrats have pulled us apart in their efforts to change everything President Trump did that was good for all of us not just the ruling elite. Jealousy is a terrible thing and that’s what the dems are, jealous because they couldn’t and wouldn’t do for us, because their power and greed would be diminished. Not one of them so far this year has earned any right to be paid! And puppeteer Obama is no better off for pulling the strings for his third term because he is irrelevant and cannot stand being a non-entity!

  17. There is nothing they can do -its over they will get over it – no matter what the do the outcome is the same – he has been pardoned — Oorah

    1. If they decide to go after Bannon, it’s time for the people to go after them. Their job is to go by the rules, not break them. We the people have already tolerated too much fraud. And for this “jester Joe” to let Covid infected individuals invade our country. He should be down there with them!

  18. Democrats think they can do whatever they want regardless if it’s legal or not. Democrats are nothing but criminal scum.

  19. You notice all these ass hole judges are appointed buy DEMORATS WHAT ELSE WOULD U EXPECT I THINK THERE IS A REVOLUTION BREWING WITH ALL THE TALK ABOUT THE CROCKED GOVERNMENT GOING TO TAKE OVER BANK ACCOUNTS AND RAISING TAXES ON THE PEOPLES 401 K’s and IRA’s I think THAT WOULD BE A GOOD REASON FOR A REVOLUTION. CLUELESS JOE WITH HIS 1.9 trillion $ most of it going towards stupid shit tha has nothing to do with CHINA VIRUS. AND HIS NEXT 3 trillion $ stimulus should only be going to infrastructure projects but you can bet your ass most of it will be going to DEMORATS DUMB AS RIDICULOUS PROJECTS AND THE DEMORATS WILL ALL VOTE FOR IT EXCEPT FOR SOME DEMOCRATS WHO STILL CARE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY
    ??????GOD BLESS AMERICA ????????
    ??????????????????????????????????

    1. Are there any Democrats left who care about this country’s historic exceptionalism? With the extreme hatred against Republicans, Caucasians, constitutionalists and conservatives and their ideas being pushed by all mainstream media, entertainment outlets and educational institutions for the past three generations, I believe maybe at least one per cent of Democrat party supporters has been able to escape or successfully ignore the constant brain-washing and would support a return to traditional America.

  20. I wonder why my last post that showed AMRICAN FLAGS SAY GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN FLAGS WERE REPLACED WITH THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ??????????So once again GOD BLESS AMERICA ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  21. Conservative GLOBE MUST BE COMMUNIST BULL SHIT THEY DONT HONOR AMERICAN FLAGS IN A POST
    THEY REPLACE THE FLAG WITH ?MARKS
    CHECK IT OUT TRY AND POST SOMETHING THAN ADD TH AMERICAN ??????????????????????????????????
    Than you will see what iam talking about

  22. ABOLISH THE DOJ. THESE CROOKED LITTLE PIECES OF SHIT ARE DEMOCRAT HACKS WHICH MEANS UNAMERICAN. SEND THEIR USELESS ASS TO GET JOBS AS SECURITY GUARDS IF THEY CAN QUALIFY FOR THAT.

  23. Americans all over the country know what is going on and who is behind it. The problem here is what we can do about it. Donations to half-a-dozen self-proclaimed “patriot” organizations? Contact your Senator, Representative? Sure, but all of mine are Demorats! What do I do now? Write more letters? The socialists are active in all levels of government like termites in an old house. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I CAN DO TO HELP GET RID OF THIS TERRIBLE SITUATION – TO WHOM CAN I APPEAL? I’m 83 and scared to death.

    1. Get involved in your local government, at the grassroots. Follow Steve Bannon his War Room comes up with lots of practical actions you can take.
