Bannon found guilty!

WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 15: Steve Bannon, advisor to former President Donald Trump, speaks to the media as a protester stands behind him, outside of the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse on June 15, 2022 in Washington, DC. Bannon is appearing before a federal judge in connection with his indictment for contempt of Congress for failing to respond to a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee on January 6.

After a little under three hours of deliberation, a jury found former Trump aide and coup co-conspirator Steve Bannon guilty Friday on two counts of contempt of Congress charges for refusing to cooperate with the House select committee investigating Jan. 6. (Two for two!)

Specifically, the two contempt of Congress charges were Willful Failure to Appear for Testimony, and Willful Failure to Provide Records. 

Bannon’s lawyers will almost certainly appeal the ruling.

The judge set sentencing for Oct. 21, 2022. Bannon faces a mandatory minimum of 30 days behind bars and a maximum of one year for each count. He could also be fined $100 to $100,000.
