Bannon Vote: Republicans once Voted to Hold Hollywood 10 in Contempt for Making Leftist Movies but won’t act on Far-Right Plot to Overthrow Gov’t

Anyone who knows the history of abuse in the Congress’s prerogative of subpoenaing witnesses and holding people in contempt for declining to testify is a little uneasy about the vote today to refer far-right gadfly Steve Bannon to the Department of Justice on charges of contempt of Congress. Mary Clare Jalonick at AP reports that the vote was 229-202. Of the 213 Republicans, all but 9 voted “no” on the motion to hold Bannon in contempt. That is, the 202 “no” votes were all Republican representatives.
