he Sixth Amendment promises ‘an impartial jury of the state and district” as well as “to be confronted with the witnesses against him’ and “to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor.” Yet, Steve Bannon enjoyed none of those. His trial in the District of Columbia for “contempt” of a committee of Congress that formed in violations of its very authenticating, originating terms. Denied the right to challenge his accuser, as the very Speaker and committee members who claimed “contempt” never testified in the trial, dodging it instead. His subpoenas for them, and other essential witnesses, all refused and denied. Turns out it’s okay to ignore a subpoena, even a court-issued one in a criminal trial issued pursuant to a Constitutionally guaranteed right. Then adjudged guilty by a jury made up of the Swamp itself judging one of its harshest critics.
