Rep. Bennie Thompson said that if lawmakers investigating the attack find enough evidence against Trump, 'We will go forward with it.'

Followers of the then-president stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 with the intent of harming lawmakers and overturning the 2020 election, which Trump lost. The deadly attack followed a nearby rally during which Trump told the tens of thousands of attendees to intimidate Vice President Mike Pence into refusing to certify the election for Joe Biden.

Thompson told Brennan on Sunday that there’s “no question” the insurrection was premeditated, bringing up the committee’s September subpoena on Steve Bannon, a onetime Trump aide suspected to have played a role in planning the attack.Advertisement“The worst kept secret in America is that Donald Trump invited individuals to come to Washington on Jan. 6, he said all hell would break loose,” the chairman said, incorrectly attributing Bannon’s quote to Trump. “Steve Bannon was part of the conversation and the promotion of Jan. 6 ― the very podcast we just listened to talks about it.”

“Steve Bannon was in the war room, and he was in the Willis Hotel doing a lot of things. So that’s why we subpoenaed him, that’s why we felt it was important for the committee and staff to depose him,” he said.Thompson was referring to Bannon’spodcast episode from one day before

the rally, in which he told listeners, “It’s not going to happen like you think it’s going to happen.”“It’s going to be quite extraordinarily different. All I can say is, strap in,” Bannon said on his show. “You made this happen, and tomorrow it’s game day. So strap in. Let’s get ready.”
