John Solomon of Just the News tells host Steve Bannon about his investigation into the background of Rep. Benny Thompson, the chair of the House’s investigation into the so-called Jan. 6 insurrection. Turns out that back in the 1970s, Thompson was a supporter of a violent group advocating for the secession of five Southern states. Talk about an insurrection!
“Before Benny Thompson was against the Capitol riot, what he calls an insurrection, he was actually FOR an insurrectionist group in Mississippi and against the cops, including cops that had been shot dead by this group called the Republic of New Africa. It was deemed by the FBI to be one of the most extremist violent groups threatening America fro the left in the Sixties and Seventies. … That … is the group that Benny Thompson publicly embraced.”
