Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon has been sentenced to four months in prisons for each count — running concurrently — in the contempt of Congress case stemming from his refusal to comply with a House January 6 committee subpoena.

The judge also levied a $6,500.

Judge will allow Bannon to appeal before serving sentence

Nichols said that if Bannon files a timely appeal, he will issue an order suspending the prison sentence until the appeals process plays out.

Nichols said that while Bannon poses a “very small risk of recidivism with regard to congressional subpoenas,” there was a need to remind the public to cooperate with congressional investigations.

“Others must be deterred from committing similar crimes,” Nichols said.
