Steve Bannon Was Convicted Of Both Counts Of Contempt Of Congress

jan-6-committee

Former Trump political advisor Steve Bannon was found guilty by a federal jury on two charges of criminally disobeying a subpoena in connection with the assault on the U.S. Capitol last year.

Just two government witnesses testified in the case, including the deputy staff director of the House Select Committee looking into the events of January 6, 2021, and Bannon offered no defense.

The Justice Department assured the jury that the case was clear-cut and as straightforward as the language on the subpoena sent to Bannon last fall.

Prosecutors claimed that Bannon had publicly declared his disobedience on the social media platform Gettr, writing that he had informed lawmakers he would “NOT comply” on October 8, 2021, after the first committee deadline had passed.

The Jan. 6 committee’s Kristin Amerling, the lead government witness, informed the jury that the committee wanted to learn more about Bannon’s interactions with former President Trump, his presence with others at the Willard Hotel in the early 2021, and his comment that “all hell is going to break loose” on the War Room podcast the day before the Capitol siege.
