Steve Bannon Ordered To Begin Prison Sentence For Contempt Of Congress By July 1

A federal judge on Thursday ordered Steve Bannon to report to prison by July 1, allowing the former Donald Trump adviser a brief period to seek intervention from a higher court.

Bannon was convicted of contempt of Congress in 2022 for failing to provide documents and testimony to the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. He was sentenced to four months in prison.

Judge Carl Nichols, who presided over the case, initially paused the sentence while Bannon appealed the conviction.

However, last month, a DC Circuit Court of Appeals panel unanimously rejected several challenges Bannon made to the case, prompting prosecutors to request that Nichols order Bannon to begin serving his sentence.

On Thursday, Nichols stated that, in light of the appeals court ruling, he no longer believed there was a basis to pause Bannon’s sentence.

The judge, appointed by Trump, concluded that he had the authority to lift the hold on Bannon’s sentence, even as the appeal of the conviction continues.
