Steve Bannon updates one of his Facebook groups with “TAKE ACTION. THEY ARE TRYING TO STEAL THE ELECTION.” The Capitol is stormed less than 24 hours later.
Around the same time, Donald Trump had spoken with Bannon multiple times for help overturning the election.
In November, Facebook removed seven Pages operated by Bannon that he used to spread election disinformation to hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters. Apparently, that ban didn’t apply to Facebook Groups.
