Legal Brief Seeks Supreme Court Intervention In Bannon Case

America First Legal (AFL) has filed an amicus brief to support Stephen K. Bannon’s request for an emergency stay from the Supreme Court. The brief, representing Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), Chairman of the House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight, argues against the legitimacy of the January 6 Select Committee and calls for the invalidation of its report on Bannon. Bannon is seeking to delay his prison sentence, which begins July 1.

Rep. Loudermilk claims that the January 6 Committee operated illegally by failing to comply with House rules and resolutions. He believes this brief will hold the committee accountable and negate their actions. Loudermilk’s subcommittee is investigating the security lapses on January 6, 2021, and the operations of the January 6 Committee.

Loudermilk stated through AFL, “Over the past year and a half, my Subcommittee has uncovered concerning misconduct by the Democrats’ former January 6 Select Committee. They suppressed evidence, deleted key files, and intentionally misled Congress and the American people to protect a preconceived narrative.”

Loudermilk insists that the committee’s procedural violations render Bannon’s prosecution for non-compliance invalid. He argues that the committee’s work lacked legitimacy and transparency, further compromising their actions.

Before filing the brief, Loudermilk told the Daily Caller, “We have resoundingly discovered that they were not completely truthful with the American people. They had little regard for House rules and no regard for transparency. They suppressed key pieces of evidence, cherry-picked evidence that supported their narrative, and played a 20 million dollar blame-game to frame President Trump and Republicans.”

Loudermilk’s efforts through this brief aim to challenge the foundation of the January 6 Committee’s actions and advocate for Bannon’s release pending further appeals, highlighting significant concerns about the committee’s conduct and transparency.
