Steve Bannon was sentenced to four months in prison, and a fine of $6,500, for contempt of Congress. He was found guilty of the charges when he refused a subpoena calling him to appear before the January 6 committee. The Justice Department was asking for a stiffer penalty; six months in prison and $200,000 fine. Bannon plans to appeal.

From Fox News:

Bannon was released pending appeal. If an appeal is not made, Bannon must surrender voluntarily by Nov. 15, U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols ruled.

The Justice Department had recommended a six-month prison sentence and a $200,000 fine for former Trump aide Steve Bannon due to his failure to comply with a subpoena to appear before the House Select Committee investigating January 6.

“I want to thank all you guys for coming,” Bannon said entering the courthouse Friday. “Remember this illegitimate regime, their judgment day is on eight November when the Biden administration ends. I want to thank you all for coming.”

He quickly added, “And remember, take down the CCP. Thank you.”

Federal prosecutors pushed for Bannon to receive at least six months in prison, citing his “bad faith” behavior in and out of court.

“From the moment that the Defendant, Stephen K. Bannon, accepted service of a subpoena from the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, he has pursued a bad-faith strategy of defiance and contempt,” federal prosecutors argued on Monday.

They continued, “The Committee sought documents and testimony from the Defendant relevant to a matter of national importance: the circumstances that led to a violent attack on the Capitol and disruption of the peaceful transfer of power. In response, the Defendant flouted the Committee’s authority and ignored the subpoena’s demands.”

Bannon claimed executive privilege precluded him from appearing before the committee to talk about the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, though prosecutors noted that he left the White House in 2017.

Say it with me, “There is no precedent for these unrestrained actions from an off-the-rails ‘government'”.

Well, maybe the irreverent remnant states unwilling to check the power of a tyrannical executive during The Great Unpleasantness.

All for excessively exuberant sight-seeing….?


 “Bannon plans to appeal”

and eventually sue while writing a book.


Fully legit elections?


And in the meantime, Hunter Biden and The Big Man as well as Jussie Smollett AND OJ are walking around free…

Please Vote In November.

Bannon is in the wrong party. If he was a member of the new 1000 year 4th Reich party, Steve right now would be sippin soda pop at his local ice cream parlor.


It’s good to be a Democrat! (Ask Hillary.)

Democrat politicians always start out with low level positions and little money. And at the height of their political careers, they are multi-millionaires.


Free as a bird, as Bill Ayers likes to say.


Holder, Lerner, Clapper, Brennan, and many more have done as much or much more to deserve prison than Bannon ever did. And there are many others like them…

Wasn’t Barrack Obama’s Attorney General held in contempt for refusing to testify before Congress? How long did he get?


Lois Learner? Eric Holder? (Them too.)


They were both held in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions. 0bama’s DOJ would not prosecute them.

USMC Steve

Nuttin’. His corrupt Obama DOJ peeps refused to prosecute him for it and toss his black ass in jail.


They ain’t got enough jails (read re-education camps) for all the people that are in contempt of congress…yet! Give ’em time.
