Congressman Johnson defends his vote to not hold Steve Bannon in contempt

WASHINGTON, D.C.(WNAX)- The US House voted to hold Steve Bannon, a long-time aide to former President Trump in contempt of Congress after he ignored a subpoena from the committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riot.

The vote was mostly along party lines, with South Dakota republican Congressman Dusty Johnson voting “no”.

Johnson says it is more about politics than an investigation.

The US Attorneys office for the District of Columbia now must decide whether to prosecute Bannon.
