Bannon to be held in criminal contempt of Congress

The January 6 Select Committee issued a statement announcing that they are moving forward with the criminal content referral of former White House counselor Steve Bannon for refusing to comply with a subpoena.

Bannon was asked to submit documents related to the January 6 insurrection and was scheduled to appear for a deposition on Thursday but has not shown up.

"Mr. Bannon has declined to cooperate with the Select Committee and is instead hiding behind the former President’s insufficient, blanket, and vague statements regarding privileges he has purported to invoke," committee chair, Representative Bennie Thompson, said.
