The background is the re-evaluation of the January 6 attack on the US capital. The House of Commons voted Thursday to send the case to prosecutors. 229 people voted in favor and 202 against. None of the Republicans in US President Joe Biden’s Democrats voted for it.
The commission of inquiry into the attack unanimously adopted a statement on Tuesday that found Congress had ignored Steve Bannon. This removed the first hurdle for bringing former Trump adviser Panan to court. Now the judiciary has to handle this case.
He did not appear for the summons
On January 6, supporters of former President Donald Trump besieged a U.S. congressional seat in Washington. Five people, including a police officer, were killed. It is suspected that Bonan had prior knowledge of plans for violent protests. On Thursday last week, he ignored a summons sent to the group that carried out the attack.
Ahead of the vote, Republican MP Liz Cheney complained, “She knows what’s going to happen. She’s one of the two Republican members on the committee.
