Appeals Court Upholds Steve Bannon’s Conviction

Good News!!

The United States Circuit Court for the District of Columbia upheld the contempt-of-Congress conviction of dirty Steve Bannon for his failure to comply with a January 6 Committee subpoena.

The court did not immediately order Bannon to begin serving his four-month prison sentence; instead, he has seven days to ask for reconsideration at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Given today’s decision, Bannon will likely be ordered to federal prison to begin serving his sentence absent a ruling from the United States Supreme Court.  He is expected to extend a Supreme Court appeal in a timely manner.

The unanimous decision was written by Brad Garcia, the newest member of the court. Bannon “deliberately refused to comply with the Select Committee’s subpoena in that he knew what the subpoena required and intentionally did not respond” and gave no persuasive argument for doing so, Garcia wrote. “Bannon failed to comply with the subpoena, and his failure to comply was willful.”

The rest you can read here:

Peter Navarro, a senior Trump aide who said in a memoir that he and Bannon had a plan for Jan. 6 that would keep President Biden from taking office, reported to prison in March for his contempt conviction and identical sentence.

“Flouting congressional subpoenas betrays a lack of respect for the legislative branch, which exercises the will of the people of the United States,” U.S. District Judge Carl J. Nichols, a Trump appointee, said at Bannon’s sentencing.
