Reports say that Steve Bannon, Trump’s WH advisor, asked his court documents to be released publicly because he wants to use them in his defense.
Steve has filed a motion to overturn a district court judge’s standard protective order for discovery, preventing either party in such cases from revealing these documents.

In one report from November 25 from the Washington Post, a statement concerned with the effort was released with the outlet on Bannon’s behalf.
“Members of the public should make their own independent judgment as to whether the U.S. Department of Justice is committed to a just result based upon all the facts. In the opposition filed today, Mr. Bannon asked the judge to follow the normal process and allow unfettered access to and use of the documents.”
We have reported on Bannon’s November 12 contempt of Congress charge that came into fruition due to Bannon’s refusal to comply with a subpoena from the House committee tasked with examining the January 6 incident.
Steve Bannon was subpoenaed to appear for an October 14 deposition linked to the investigation for the January 6 event and for not giving the requested documents to the House committee investigating the same event.
DOJ press release in November said that Bannon was his with two contempt of Congress charges, which, if convicted of only one charge, can carry up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
Right before the indictment, Steve Bannon pleaded not guilty to the charges and said, “I’m telling you right now, this is going to be the misdemeanor from hell for Merrick Garland, Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden… We’re going on the offense…Not just Trump people and not just conservatives — every progressive, every liberal in this country that likes the freedom of speech and liberty should be fighting for this case. That’s why I’m here today: for everybody. I’m never going to back down.”
