An adviser to former President Donald Trump was indicted for contempt of Congress on Friday.
Steve Bannon, who advised Trump during his presidency, got the DOJ indictment for refusing to respond to subpoenas to hand over documents and give a deposition to the January 6 committee.
Bannon is expected to turn himself in on Monday and appear in court for a hearing Monday afternoon.
The committee put out a statement that it “had reason to believe that Bannon had information relevant to understanding events related to Jan. 6. Bannon, formerly a Chief Strategist and Counselor to the President, has been a private citizen since departing the White House in 2017.”
It has been over 40 years since anyone convicted of contempt of Congress was sent to jail, so even convicting Bannon may not get the committee the information it wants.
