BREAKING: Court Rejects Steve Bannon’s Appeal – Hearing Scheduled for Prison Remand

Steve Bannon’s appeal after being sentenced to 4 months in prison for refusing a subpoena by the J6 committee has just been denied.

A hearing to remand Bannon to prison has been scheduled for June 6th.

Take a look at the breaking news:

The Post Millennial reported:

A hearing application in the case of the United States v. Bannon has been filed for June 6, at which point the Department of Justice will ask that Bannon be remanded to prison. That notice of hearing was filed on Tuesday and requires Bannon to appear in person in the courtroom of Judge Carl J Nichols at 11:30 am on June 6.

Bannon was sentenced to four months in prison after being convicted of failing to comply with a congressional subpoena from the January 6 committee. He was free while awaiting his appeal, which has failed after a federal appeals court denied to hear it. However, this came after a court had found that there were “substantial questions” that should be heard on appeal. Bannon has asserted that his appeals process has not yet been exhausted and said in a legal filing that he “intends to pursue to the fullest extent” that process.

CNN has more details on the reason behind Steve Bannon’s conviction:

Bannon was found guilty in July 2022 by a federal jury of two counts of contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena by the House January 6 select committee in its investigation into the 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

The Justice Department said in its court filing that a person who is found guilty must report for their term of imprisonment unless the defendant can establish “the appeal is not for the purpose of delay and raises a substantial question of law or fact likely to result in reversal.”

“The D.C. Circuit rejected defendant’s appeal on all grounds, including the primary argument on appeal: the requisite mental state required for a contempt of Congress violation,” the Justice Department wrote.

How convenient that the Justice Department wants to lock away Bannon, one of Trump’s closest allies, during the 4 critical months just before one of the most important elections in American history…

It’s almost as if it was contrived.
