Bannon Could Be the First Person Sent to Jail for Contempt of Congress Since the “Hollywood Ten”

From a Washington Post story by Ronald G. Shafer headlined “‘Hollywood Ten’ were the last people jailed for contempt of Congress”:

Stephen K. Bannon could become the first person sent to jail for contempt of Congress since the “Hollywood Ten” in 1948.

A federal jury in D.C. on Friday convicted the former White House chief strategist on two charges of refusing to comply with a subpoena to testify before the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol by supporters of former president Donald Trump. Each of the two charges is punishable by 30 days-to-one-year in jail, as well as a $100,000 fine. Sentencing was scheduled for Oct. 21.
