Will Remain Free Pending Appeal

  • A federal judge on Friday sentenced Steve Bannon to four months in prison for defying a subpoena from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riots.
  • The judge said the former Trump strategist can remain free pending appeals of his conviction.
  • “The sentence I am imposing reflects the fact that there can be more culpable ways to be in contempt of Congress than Mr. Bannon’s conduct,” U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols said. “But I do believe Mr. Bannon does have some culpability here.”
