Former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon was sentenced to four months in prison Friday, three months after his conviction on charges of contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena from the special House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols granted a defense request that the flamboyant adviser to former President Donald Trump be allowed to remain free pending appeal. The Justice Department had sought a six-month term for Bannon and recommended he pay a maximum fine of $200,000 for “his sustained, bad-faith.”

“From the moment that the Defendant, Stephen K. Bannon, accepted service of a subpoena from the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol … he has pursued a bad-faith strategy of defiance and contempt,” prosecutors said in court documents ahead of Friday’s sentencing hearing.

Feeling Helpless?

Someone said this to me during an interview recently: “I feel helpless in the face of the world’s suffering. I don’t know what to do about the pain I see all around me. It’s driving me crazy.” Well, you know, it takes a lot of energy and attention to drive yourself crazy.
