U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has upheld the conviction of former Trump adviser Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress

In a unanimous decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has upheld the conviction of former Trump adviser Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress, rejecting his appeal against a four-month jail term. The court's ruling, which included appointees from both Democratic and Republican administrations, found that Bannon could not reasonably argue that the subpoena from the House January 6 committee was for an improper purpose, given its investigation into the Capitol riot. This decision marks a significant moment in the legal aftermath of the January 6 events, underscoring the judiciary's stance on the enforcement of congressional subpoenas. Bannon's case follows a similar conviction of Peter Navarro, highlighting the legal consequences faced by those who defy congressional inquiries.
