Judge orders Bannon to report to prison

Source: Deadline

“Steve Bannon was ordered to report to prison on July 1 to serve a four-month sentence for contempt of Congress. Bannon, a longtime ally of Donald Trump‘s who served as his White House chief strategist, can still seek a stay of Judge Carl Nichols’ order, per the AP. But an appeals court last month rejected Bannon’s arguments for why the conviction should be overturned. … Bannon was convicted for defying a congressional subpoena issued by the House January 6th Committee. The committee was dissolved when Republicans took control of Congress last year.” (06/06/24)
