트럼프는 배넌에 대한 행정 특권 주장을 포기하는 것을 고려하고 있지만 검찰은 그가 결코 보호받지 못했다고 말합니다

도날드 트럼프 is considering waiving executive privilege for Steve Bannon, 상황에 정통한 두 소식통에 따르면, but federal prosecutors don’t believe the former President’s privilege claims shielded his longtime political adviser in the first place.

지우다, 소식통은 CNN에 말했다, might pen a letter memorializing his position that could be used in Bannon’s defense, which they say could clear a path for Bannon to testify before the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, 폭동.
워싱턴 포스트 처음보고 that Trump is considering writing the letter.
    Bannon is set to go on trial later this month on criminal contempt charges after he refused to cooperate with the House panel, citing broad executive privilege claimsthe first case of its kind to result from the landmark congressional investigation. He has pleaded not guilty to the contempt charges.
      Even if Bannon agrees to testify before the committee, that is not a remedy in a criminal contempt of Congress case, so it’s still unclear what impact this would have on his upcoming trial.
        Bannon and several other conservatives have tried to fight the select committee’s subpoenas in court, but their arguments have been repeatedly rejected by federal judges.
        Legal experts have said Bannon’s privilege claims are shaky in part because he had left his White House role years before the US Capitol attack. “There is no executive privilege. This is a ploy to mess up his criminal case,” CNN analyst Norm Eisen said.
          The Justice Department also did not buy Bannon’s privilege claims and indicted him last year.
          지난 달, Judge Carl Nichols of the DC District Court rejected Bannon’s motion to dismiss the case against him, including his arguments that the House select committee’s subpoenas were illegal and that he was protected by the secrecy of the presidency because he had been in contact with Trump at the end of his administration.
            재판 중, Justice Department prosecutors, who received a referral from the House to prosecute him, will need to prove a relatively narrow case if they are to secure a convictionthat Bannon willfully refused to respond to the congressional inquiry. He will not be able to argue he relied on the advice of his lawyer, the judge has already ruled.
            This story has been updated with additional details Friday.
