Steve Bannon who was a former trusted strategist for President Donald Trump, made his first public appearance since his arrest on August 20 and spoke with Tucker Carlson.
Bannon Makes Appearance
Tucker Carlson is very popular with conservatives and Bannon used his platform to talk about the charges of fraud he was arrested on as of August 31.
“On the advice of counsel, My Lawyer Bill Burks says lay off, but I have to come forward. Bill Barr said the other night this is headhunting of high profile political associates of Trump, and I have to notice that it is almost 4 years to the day that I took over for Trump that I was arrested. But I was never going back to the campaign, and they are trying to criminalize political speech,” Bannon started off.
The former Navy veteran then went on to discuss the November presidential election and Bannon said his goal is to prevent the Democrats from stealing the election.
2020 Election Brings Possible Democrat Cheating
“The campaign is in great shape to deliver a victory on Nov 3, the Democrats have traumatized their base, so they have to steal the election, and my platform now is bigger and my voice is bigger, and I am going to make sure corporations can not steal the election.”
“My C4 had a 1 million contract to be the DC office for We Build the Wall, I was a contractor and brought together people to talk about the Wall. I had one million dollars to oversee conferences, and oversee things and I ran an advisory board. They can’t criminalize me for talking about the wall. The key thing is they want to criminalize political speech. Go look at the indictment. I won’t let them,” he continued.
“We are kicking off an effort on Monday called ‘The Plot to steal 2020’, they are not going to take my voice and I want to make sure they can’t take the election from Trump,” Bannon told Carlson.
Winner Might Not Be Announced on Nov 3
Bannon continued to talk about the election and how the results might be stifled by Big Tech and Democrats.
“They [Big Tech] are already saying they won’t announce a winner, Trump will win Nov 3rd the same old way-but between lawfare 800 like the lawyers that [Eric] Holder has, and the mob and radical elements Antifa and Black Lives Matter and digital muscle of Facebook and Twitter, they won’t declare Trump the winner. I think the team is doing a great job, he [Trump] will be the winner, the campaign is totally focused, the camp is doing great, and the president is doing great,” he said.
As for who he believes will win the election, “Biden can not draw a crowd, Trump will be the winner on Nov 3rd and that is when the war starts.”
