Bannon to Jail for Contempt of Congress

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

Steve Bannon is headed to jail. The man partially responsible for engineering Donald Trump’s stunning 2016 victory will report to prison on July 1 after a federal judge ordered he serve a four-month sentence for contempt of Congress. “There’s not a prison or jail built that will ever shut me up. All victory to MAGA, we’re going to win this,” remarked Bannon moments after the order came down outside a federal courthouse on Thursday. Bannon was convicted of two misdemeanor counts of contempt of Congress in 2022 after he refused to cooperate with the Democratic-led House of Representatives committee. Bannon now joins another top Trump ally, Peter Navarro, in prison. Navarro is similarly serving a four-month sentence.
