Report: Steve Bannon to Plead Not Guilty to Criminal Contempt Charges


Steve Bannon, former White House senior counselor to President Donald Trump and one-time executive chairman of Breitbart News, will reportedly plead not guilty to criminal contempt of Congress on Thursday.

The court filing suggests a scheduled arraignment on Thursday, according to the Hill. Bannon has reportedly filed a Wednesday motion to “skip the arraignment — a move that requires sign off from the judge.”

Bannon was indicted Friday on two counts of criminal contempt for refusing to turn over documents requested by congressional subpoena and for neglecting to appear before the partisan, January 6 House Select Committee.

If convicted, Bannon could face up to a $1,000 fine for each offense and a year in jail.
