Steve Bannon Surrenders to FBI; Wyoming GOP Dumps Liz Cheney over Trump Criticism

HeadlineNov 16, 2021

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon turned himself in to the FBI on Monday after being indicted for two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection. Bannon was later released. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday.

In Wyoming, the state Republican Party has voted to stop recognizing Congressmember Liz Cheney as a party member due to her vote to impeach Donald Trump for inciting the Capitol insurrection. A spokesperson for Cheney responded by saying it was sad that leaders in the Wyoming Republican Party have “allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man.”

In other Trump news, The Wall Street Journal reports a Miami investment fund is preparing to purchase the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., for $375 million and turn the property into a Waldorf Astoria hotel while removing the Trump name.
