DALLAS — Former White House strategist Steve Bannon, recently found guilty of contempt of Congress, addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference in Texas on Friday, telling the audience they are in “a political and ideological war” and arguing that Republicans should move to investigate their ideological enemies if they win a majority in November.

“The politics of the present is attack, attack, attack,” he said.

A federal jury convicted Bannon last month of two counts of criminal contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Bannon claimed he did not have to comply with the subpoena, citing executive privilege, a claim disputed even by former President Donald Trump’s lawyer. He could face jail time and fines at his sentencing, which is scheduled for Oct. 21.

But Bannon was focused on November rather than October.

“We have to deliver,” Bannon said of the November elections. “There can be no half-measures anymore.”

Bannon called Biden an “illegitimate” president and echoed Trump's unfounded claims of election fraud.

Bannon singled out MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell and Kari Lake, a former news anchor who recently won the Republican gubernatorial nomination in Arizona. Both have embraced Trump’s unfounded claims of a stolen election.

“The easiest victories we've had are behind us,” Bannon said. “The easiest things we've done are behind us. They are going to come after you like they came after Kari Lake and they came after Mike Lindell if you are at the forefront of this movement.”

Bannon argued Republicans should use the investigative powers of Congress to achieve their ends, which he said would include investigating “the southern border” and Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to the White House.

“We have to fight fire with fire because, trust me, they're playing to win and we're not right now,” Bannon said. “We have to play to win. The country's in the balance.”

Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, called Bannon’s remarks one of the “most amazing” CPAC speeches he has heard.

FBI agents searched Mar-a-Lago for classified documents relating to nuclear weapons: report

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who executed a federal search warrant at Mar-a-Lago Monday were on the hunt for “classified documents relating to nuclear weapons,” according to an exclusive Washington Post report Thursday evening.

“Experts in classified information said the unusual search underscores deep concern among government officials about the types of information they thought could be located at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and potentially in danger of falling into to the wrong hands,” The Washington Post adds.

“If that is true, it would suggest that material residing unlawfully at Mar-a-Lago may have been classified at the highest classification level,” David Laufman, the former chief of the Justice Department’s counterintelligence section, told the Post. “If the FBI and the Department of Justice believed there were top secret materials still at Mar-a-Lago, that would lend itself to greater ‘hair-on-fire’ motivation to recover that material as quickly as possible.”

“This is a nat sec/CI issue,” tweeted Asha Rangappa Tuesday morning, meaning national security and counterintelligence. Rangappa is an attorney, former FBI special agent, senior lecturer at Yale, and CNN commentator.

Also on Tuesday Rangappa tweeted: “Ask yourself: What kind of info makes its way to the WH, and specifically to the president? —> HIGH LEVEL SECRETS. PDB stuff. Defense info. These aren’t low-level diplomatic cables or overclassified State Dept. correspondence.”
