Our institutions have been under attack for five years, and the attacks continue.

One, now, is the pursuit of charges against former President Trump’s key advisor, Steve Bannon, who, hiding behind Trump’s demands of executive privilege, is refusing to respect a subpoena issued by the committee investigating the January 6th riot/protest/insurrection/”normal day” on the Hill.

Some might say that with all the bigger issues facing our country, the Congress should not be pursuing charges against Bannon.
