The former Trump advisor Steve Bannon melted down on his podcast over the possibility former President Donald Trump might be indicted over the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

The attorney Ron Filipkowski posted a clip from Bannon's "War Room: Pandemic" podcast in which the Trump ally raged at the possibility of a Trump indictment and threatened Attorney General Merrick Garland with impeachment.

"Trump won the presidency. And he is the legitimate president of the United States, and your guy's illegitimate and the American people are awakening to that," Bannon said, parroting Trump's false conspiracy theories of widespread voter fraud.

"We don't care what you have to say. And I dare Merrick Garland to take that crap there last night and try to indict Donald J. Trump," he added, referring to Thursday evening's first of six scheduled hearings by the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot.

"We dare you because we will impeach you. We're winning in November and we're going to impeach you and everybody around you. Fuck — screw the White House. We're going to impeach you and everybody in the DOJ," he added.

Members of the January 6 committee on Sunday said the panel had uncovered enough evidence to indict Trump for trying to invalidate Joe Biden's presidential victory. Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on ABC News on Sunday that he "would like to see the Justice Department investigate any credible allegation of criminal activity" on Trump's part.

As for Bannon, a report published by The Atlantic last week cast doubt on whether the political strategist truly believed Trump's claims of voter fraud. A former Trump campaign aide, Sam Nunberg, told the outlet Bannon parroted Trump's election-fraud conspiracy theories only to get a presidential pardon. Bannon did indeed secure a pardon as one of Trump's last acts in office. At the time, Bannon was facing fraud charges linked to a border-wall fundraising campaign.

Bannon in November was formally charged by the Department of Justice over his noncompliance with a subpoena handed down from the House panel investigating the Capitol riot. He is expected to go on trial in Washington, DC, next month and is facing two criminal charges of contempt of Congress.

He belongs in a straight jacket, but then so do all those who believe what he says.  There aren't enough insane asylums in the USA to house those who deserve to be the patients.
