Former Trump Chief Strategist and host of the media juggernaut War Room Pandemic Steve Bannon has been sentenced to 4 months in prison and a $6500 fine for contempt of Congress.
Bannon was found guilty of contempt of Congress in July after he ignored a subpoena from the House Jan. 6 Committee.
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.”
The 4 month prison sentence is for Bannon’s refusal to comply with a subpoena issued to him from the corrupt January 6th Committee. Revolver has extensively covered the conflicts of interest and corruption that beleaguers the disgraced and politicized January 6 Committee.
Ever the determined and happy warrior, a defiant Bannon had a strong message for the “illegitimate” Regime that has taken to persecuting its political opponents:

Pray for Steve Bannon:
Steve Bannon is a living legend and force of nature in politics and media
One of the few irreplaceable talents in the arena
And one of the few tough enough to face the storm our illegitimate Regime visits on its most effective critics
