Stephen K. Bannon was found guilty on Friday of criminal contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a subpoena from the House Jan. 6 Committee, marking a significant victory for the panel as it ramps up its probe of the 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The jury in federal court in Washington returned the guilty verdict against Mr. Bannon on two counts. Federal prosecutors argued that the former Trump adviser “chose allegiance to Donald Trump over compliance to the law.”


Each count carries a minimum potential sentence of 30 days and a maximum of one year in jail, as well as a fine of $100 to $1,000.

The jury deliberated for a little over two hours before returning its verdict in federal court in Washington, D.C. U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols set Oct. 21 as the date for Bannon’s sentencing.

    This is the new America under Joe Biden and the Democrat-Socialist regime. Only Democrats get court privileges. Republicans have no rights.
