Bannon’s Choice: Lie & Go to Prison or Admit to Treason
MSNBC intel analyst Malcolm Nance: “Steve Bannon right now has got to be thinking, ‘How do I get out of this. Do I tell the truth, or do I lie and go to prison.’ Every person in this story is now confronted with those two facts.”
George Papadopoulos conspired with a Russian government representative to try to steal Hillary Clinton’s emails, which was a violation of multiple laws. If Papadopoulos indeed told Steve Bannon of what he was doing, then Bannon is facing criminal charges ranging from misprision of a felony, conspiracy to receive stolen goods, and worse.
So. If Papadopolous finked to save his miserable hide … and there is evidence to make those assertions stick …
… then yeah, they’ve got Bannon on conspiring with Russia to steal the election, and handing over data from Cambridge Analytics and coordinating with Wikileaks and dog knows what else.
Will Bannon flip on Trump? Or will he choose to become a prison bitch like The Colonel? Once powerful and arrogant, now reduced to cowering in a cell as a massive prisoner slaps him repeatedly in the face, making him blubber helplessly…?
