Previously, Longtime Trump ally and former advisor Steve Bannon was found guilty of contempt charges for defying a congressional subpoena from the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. A four-day trial resulted in Bannon being found guilty on two federal charges. One charge was due to refusal to appear for a deposition. The other charge was because Bannon refused to provide documents in response to the January 6 committee’s subpoena. Now, Bannon has been sentenced for defying the committee appointed to investigate the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols spoke on the matter, saying, “In my view, Mr. Bannon has not taken responsibility for his actions,” Nichols said before he imposed the sentence. “Others must be deterred from committing similar crimes.” The verdict was given after Nichols clarified that contempt of Congress should be given a mandatory minimum of at least one month in prison.
While walking into court on Friday, Bannon spoke to reporters and said, “This illegitimate regime, their judgment day is on 8 November when the Biden administration ends.” Take a look above.
