New Report Reveals Steve Bannon Was Behind January 6th Protest Planning

(FreedomBeacon.com)- According to “Peril,” a book written by controversial journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, former Trump aide Steve Bannon attempted to convince former President Donald Trump to return to the White House on January 6.

Trump was in his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida at the time, and January 6 was the day that Congress was set to vote on whether or not to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election. Earlier that day, then-President Donald Trump had hosted a peaceful rally and protested the results, describing the evidence of widespread election fraud and misconduct. It was also the day that a small group of people chose to break away from the protest and break into the Capitol building.

But according to the book, Bannon told President trump, “you’ve got to return to Washington and make a dramatic return today.”

“You’ve got to call Pence off the f*cking ski slopes and get him back here today. This is a crisis,” he said.

Bannon reportedly told Trump that people are going to ask “what the f*ck is going on here?” and that he intended to “bury” Joe Biden on January 6.

Now of course, you know that the book is going to try and twist Bannon’s words. He obviously didn’t literally mean “bury.”

This isn’t much of a revelation, but an indication that Woodward and others are extremely keen to make Trump associates look bad. Few reporters, if any, have considered the legitimate evidence of fraud in the 2020 presidential election. No major outlets have reported on the findings by Matt Braynard and the Voter Integrity Project that found tens of thousands of votes cast by people on the National Change of Address Database, indicating possible double votes.

Nonetheless, the book goes into great deal into the comments made by Bannon and others as if they were being unreasonable.

Wouldn’t you use language like that if you had seen evidence that an election had just been stolen?

Newsweek baselessly claimed during a recent report that President Donald Trump made “baseless claims” of fraud during the Stop the Steal rally near the Capitol on the morning of January 6, before reminding readers that he told protesters and legislators to “fight like hell.”

Who really believes he literally meant “fight”?

The media, including Woodward and Costa, seem so desperate to continue smearing President Trump. Are they scared he might come back?
