Bannon refused to comply with a subpoena from the January 6th committee.
Former Trump White House official Steve Bannon was sentenced to four months in prison and must pay $6,500 for contempt of Congress.
He refused to comply with a subpoena from the January 6th Committee:
Bannon was released pending appeal. If an appeal is not made, Bannon must surrender voluntarily by Nov. 15, U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols ruled.
The Justice Department had recommended a six-month prison sentence and a $200,000 fine for former Trump aide Steve Bannon due to his failure to comply with a subpoena to appear before the House Select Committee investigating January 6.
“I want to thank all you guys for coming,” Bannon said entering the courthouse Friday. “Remember this illegitimate regime, their judgment day is on eight November when the Biden administration ends. I want to thank you all for coming.”
He quickly added, “And remember, take down the CCP. Thank you.”
Bannon is jailed for contempt of Congress. Eric Holder is still free.
There hasn't been a contempt of Congress charge in nearly 40 years, and that person was acquitted of the charge.
Argue rule-of-law all you want, a lot of regular GOP voters are going to perceive this as political persecution, further delegitimizing the DOJ and J6 committee. https://t.co/KuN994YOEe

FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith fabricated evidence against the president and his campaign in order to get an illegal spy warrant.
Despite being convicted of a felony, he didn’t spend a single day in prison, and his law law license was restored.
