Steve Bannon found guilty of contempt charges


Steve Bannon was found guilty of both contempt charges against him over his defiance of a House Jan. 6 committee subpoena.

Leading up to the trial, Bannon had vowed to fight against the “misdemeanor from hell” and go “medieval on these people,” but when time came for the trial, he ultimately opted not to testify or call on any witnesses in his defense. Charges for contempt entail between 30 days and one year in prison and up to a $100,000 fine per charge. The decision comes after a mere three hours of deliberations. A sentencing date has been scheduled for Oct. 21.
