Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon has been sentenced to four months in jail after being found guilty of contempt of Congress for ignoring a subpoena. Members of the House January 6th committee wanted to hear from Bannon about the former president’s involvement in the January 6th attacks on the Capitol. Bannon assessed that it would be better for his reputation and his brand to be prosecuted instead of complying with the committee. In addition to the jail sentence, Bannon has been ordered to pay a fine of $6,500. He will not be put behind bars immediately, however, as US District Judge Carl Nichols has allowed Bannon to remain free while the appeals process plays out. This sentence is unlikely to teach Steve any sort of lesson since the money is insignificant to him and the jail sentence is short and may not end up happening at all.
