Bannon’s was originally convicted for failing to comply with a subpoena from the House January 6 Committee

Steve Bannon’s conviction for contempt of Congress was upheld by a federal appeals court on Friday. Bannon was found guilty of failing to comply with a subpoena from the House January 6 Committee and sentenced to four months in federal prison.

The US DC Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously rejected Bannon’s case, which included the claim that the trial court prevented him from putting valid evidence before the jury.

The Court ruled that the contempt law under which Bannon was convicted only required proof that he “deliberately and intentionally” did not respond to the subpoena.

The Court also rejected Bannon’s claim that the January 6 Committee was improperly formed.

“These objections suffer from a common defect,” the judges wrote. “Bannon did not raise them before the Select Committee and therefore forfeited them.”

Why did the DC appellate panel today uphold the contempt of Congress charges against Steve Bannon yet Hunter Biden brazenly walked out of the deposition he was subpoenaed for and hasn’t faced any consequences?

In its ruling on Friday, the Court of Appeals gave Bannon the opportunity to appeal its ruling to the full DC-based appeals court before it notifies the original judge that the conviction has been upheld.

Bannon could also launch a full challenge in the US Supreme Court.
