Steve Bannon Taken Into Custody for Contempt Charges
On Monday, Steve Bannon, a former adviser and longtime ally of former President Trump, surrendered to federal authorities to face his contempt charges.
Last Friday, a Federal Grand Jury charged Bannon with one count for his failure to appear before a 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.
Bannon was taken into custody and is expected to appear in court later this afternoon.
Former President Trump directed former aides and associates to not participate in the House investigation regarding the events of the Jan. 6 insurrection 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.
