Steven Bannon was sentenced to four months in a federal lockdown and a $6,500 fine for defying a Congressional subpoena from the Jan. 6 committee.
“Respect for Congress is of course an important piece of our Constitutional system,” US District Judge Carl J. Nichols, a Trump appointee, said during the sentencing.
Earlier, Nichols had noted that Bannon “has expressed no remorse for his actions.”
Bannon, 68, was found guilty in July of contempt for ignoring the subpeona. The host of the “War Room” and a longtime ally of former President Donald Trump was convicted by a jury after a four-day trial on two counts, refusing to appear for a deposition and refusing to provide documents.
