January 1, Steve Bannon turns himself in



Former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon surrendered himself to law enforcement to face contempt charges stemming from defying a subpoena from the House committee investigating Jan. 6.

Bannon faces two charges of criminal contempt of Congress, one for failing to appear for a deposition and the other for refusing to provide documents to the committee.

The Department of Justice indicted Bannon on Friday. If convicted, Bannon faces a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of one year in jail, as well as a fine of $100 to $1,000.

“Mr. Bannon will comply with our investigation or he will face the consequences. Maybe he’s willing to be a martyr to the disgraceful cause of whitewashing what happened on Jan. 6 — of demonstrating his complete loyalty to the former President,” committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said of Bannon when the Jan. 6 panel first voted to refer him for criminal contempt charges last month.

“So I want other witnesses to understand something very plainly: If you’re thinking of following the path Mr. Bannon has gone down, you’re on notice that this is what you’ll face,” Thompson added.
