WATCH: Jan. 6 committee chair calls on Steve Bannon to show, saying ‘we won’t take no as an answer’

Jan. 6 Committee Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., opened a meeting on Tuesday evening where members voted to charge President Donald Trump’s former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon with criminal contempt.

“There isn’t a different set of rules for Mr. Bannon. He knows that,” Thompson said.
Last week, Bannon defied a request from a committee subpoena demanding he hand over documents and provide testimony on his communications with Trump days before hundreds of pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol building.

“Mr. Bannon will comply with our investigation or he will face the consequences,” Thompson said.
Trump also filed a lawsuit last week to block the release of documents requested by the committee.

The committee voted unanimously to charge Bannon with criminal contempt in the brief Oct. 19 meeting.
