El American’s chief correspondent Anna Paulina Luna sat down exclusively with Maureen Bannon, daughter of former Trump administration advisor Steve Bannon, to discuss the fallout on her family from the media revolt surrounding her father since he turned himself into justice.
The former White House strategist was indicted by a federal grand jury for failing to testify and refusing to turn over documents to the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 riots.
Is Bannon’s case politically influenced?
Maureen, an Army veteran, believes the persecution against her father affects her entire family and invites Americans not to believe the narrative promoted by the mainstream media against Bannon.
Despite what is happening in her immediate environment, Bannon believes it is necessary for citizens to get involved in their communities since, from her point of view, this is a political issue.
“Get involved so we can, in turn, take back the House in 2022, take back the White House in 2024, but it starts at that grassroot,” Bannon said.
Although she cannot make public statements about her father’s situation, the activist and political commentator insists on the need to participate in community events such as school board meetings or public debates about the border crisis, and believes it is crucial for Americans to raise their voices and stand up for their positions strongly.
“People come after me constantly because of who my dad is, but I know where my views stand, I’m strong in my beliefs, and just push forward. I understand that it is scary, but don’t let them silence you,” Bannon said.
