“Donald Trump’s former adviser, Steve Bannon, has been sentenced to four months in prison after being convicted of contempt of Congress.
“Bannon was found guilty by a jury for failing to comply with a House of Representatives subpoena relating to an ongoing January 6 investigation of the attack on the Capitol.
“The prosecution was seeking a six-month sentence as well as a $200,000 dollar fine. Bannon was only forced to pay $6,500.
“Bannon is expected to appeal the ruling shortly and ask for the sentencing to be postponed until his challenge is filed.”
As he entered the courthouse, Bannon said:
“I want to thank all you guys for coming. Remember this illegitimate regime, their judgment day is on eight November when the Biden administration ends. I want to thank you all for coming.”
