Jan. 6 panel denies Bannon attempt to delay criminal referral vote
By Rebecca Beitsch - 10/19/21 12:37 PM EDT

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol has shot down a last-minute request from former White House strategist Steve Bannon to delay a scheduled vote to refer him for prosecution based on a lawsuit filed Monday by President Trump.

Trump’s suit seeks to block the committee from a sweeping trove of records sought from the National Archives, claiming the move violates executive privilege. President Biden earlier just month waived his executive privilege claims to the documents.

A letter from Bannon’s attorney asks for a week-long delay “so that we might thoughtfully assess the impact of this pending legislation.”

Even before Trump formally filed the suit, Bannon had said he would not comply with the committee’s subpoena until the former president's executive privilege case was addressed by the courts.

Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) denied the request, calling the committee’s work “extremely important and urgent for the nation.”
