Steve Bannon Ordered To Report To Prison By Federal Judge

Steve Bannon, longtime ally to ex-President Donald Trump and former White House aide, was ordered to report to prison by July 1 to begin serving a four-month sentence for his 2022 contempt of Congress conviction.

Judge Carl Nichols granted prosecutors’ motion on Thursday to revoke Bannon’s bail after a three-judge appeals panel declined to overturn his conviction last month.

Bannon was convicted after defying a subpoena from the House committee that investigated the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Outside the D.C. courthouse following Nichols’ ruling, Bannon remained defiant.

“There’s not a prison built or a jail built that will ever shut me up,” he told reporters. “We’re gonna win this. We’re gonna win at the Supreme Court and we’re gonna win on Nov. 5.”

Former Trump adviser Peter Navarro is currently serving a four-month sentence after being convicted of the same crime as Bannon. In March, the Supreme Court rejected Navarro’s bid to remain free.

Despite losing his appeal, Bannon added that he’s “got great lawyers.”
