    On Friday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld one-time former Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s Jan. 6th contempt of Congress conviction.

    The news was reported by Politico senior legal affairs reporter Kyle Cheney, who noted that the ruling was by a unanimous three-judge panel.

    The three judge panel rejected Bannon’s appeal of his conviction for defying a subpoena to testify before the congressional subcommittee that investigated the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

    Bannon was sentenced to four months in 2022 on one count for his refusal to appear before Congress and another count for failing to produce documents requested by the subcommittee.

    Bannon’s conviction being upheld paves the way for him to be required to actually serve his four-month prison sentence.

    1. The J6 committee was an illegal committee that changed everything to fit their criteria. Bannon is not guilty. How can he be when ALL the J6 committee criminals are the guilty ones. Why doesn’t the Judge know this? Is he now guilty also?
