Top Trump Ally Sentenced To PRISON

Steve Bannon, a former top advisor to Donald Trump, has been instructed by a federal judge to surrender himself to prison by July 1 in order to commence serving his four-month sentence for contempt of Congress. Bannon, aged 70, was found guilty of contempt in July 2022 for refusing to comply with a subpoena to testify before the congressional committee investigating the January 6, 2021 assault on the US Capitol by Trump supporters.

Despite being sentenced to four months in prison in October 2022, Bannon has been out on bail while appealing his conviction. However, a US federal appeals court recently upheld the conviction. During a court hearing on Thursday, US District Judge Carl Nichols revoked his bail and mandated that he report to prison by July 1. Following the judge’s decision, Bannon defiantly spoke to the press outside the Washington courthouse, asserting that nothing can silence him.

“There’s not a prison built or a jail built that will ever shut me up,” he said. “We’re going to win on November 5th in an amazing landslide,” he added.

Peter Navarro, a former top advisor to Trump, was recently found guilty of contempt of Congress and has started serving a four-month prison sentence in Florida. Navarro, aged 74, is the most senior ex-member of the Trump administration to face imprisonment due to actions related to the former president’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.

Steve Bannon, who previously served as chief strategist in the White House, was also involved in legal issues, being charged with wire fraud and money laundering for misusing funds meant for the border wall construction. Despite others being convicted in the same case, Trump granted Bannon a pardon before leaving office, resulting in the charges against him being dropped.
