Trump Adviser Bannon Sentenced to Four Months in Prison

From a story on by Erin Doherty headlined “Steve Bannon sentenced to 4 months in prison”:

Steve Bannon, a former Trump adviser, on Friday was sentenced to four months in prison and ordered to pay a $6,500 fine for defying a subpoena from the Jan. 6 select committee.

Why it matters: The Justice Department had argued that the former Trump adviser should get six months in prison, the harshest sentence available under federal guidelines.

  • U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols stayed the sentence while Bannon appeals his conviction.
