Federal Jury Indicts Steve Bannon for Contempt of Congress
On Friday, a Federal Grand Jury returned an indictment against Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress.
Bannon, a former Trump adviser, was charged with one count for his failure to appear before the House Jan. 6 select committee and with another count for refusing to produce requested documents. Each count holds a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 1 year in jail.
Former President Trump directed former aides and associates to not participate in the investigation and has filed a lawsuit to try and prevent Congress from obtaining certain documents. The appeals court temporarily delayed the release of certain Trump documents until the end of the month, giving both sides more to time to argue their points.
