Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s former strategist, has been indicted for refusing to cooperate with a subpoena from the January 6th congressional commission. This was expected to happen ever since last month, when it became known that Bannon would not be sending over requested documents to Congress. The House of Representatives then voted to hold Bannon in criminal contempt and referred the matter over to the US attorney’s office in Washington DC. The US Justice Department released a statement on the charges, saying, “Bannon, 67, is charged with one contempt count involving his refusal to appear for a deposition and another involving his refusal to produce documents.” The statement also included the penalties Bannon is facing, saying “each count of contempt of Congress carries a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of one year in jail, as well as a fine of $100 to $1,000.” There are now rumors of more subpoenas going out to Trump’s former senior policy adviser Stephen Miller and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. If they too decide to ignore the requests for documents, a cascade of charges could soon be coming the way of a number of former Trump administration officials.
