BREAKING: Hearing to remand Steve Bannon to prison set for June 6

Bannon was sentenced to four months in prison after being convicted of failing to comply with a congressional subpoena from the January 6 committee.

A hearing application in the case of the United States v. Bannon has been filed for June 6, at which point the Department of Justice will ask that Bannon be remanded to prison. That notice of hearing was filed on Tuesday and requires Bannon to appear in person in the courtroom of Judge Carl J Nichols at 11:30 am on June 6.

Bannon was sentenced to four months in prison after being convicted of failing to comply with a congressional subpoena from the January 6 committee. He was free while awaiting his appeal, which has failed after a federal appeals court denied to hear it. However, this came after a court had found that there were "substantial questions" that should be heard on appeal. Bannon has asserted that his appeals process has not yet been exhausted and said in a legal filing that he "intends to pursue to the fullest extent" that process.

The subpoena was delivered to Bannon on September 23, 2021, reading: "The Select Committee has reason to believe that you have information relevant to understanding important activities that led to and informed the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. For example, you have been identified as present at the Willard Hotel on January 5, 2021, during an effort to persuade Members of Congress to block the certification of the election the next day, and in relation to other activities on January 6... Moreover, you are quoted as stating, on January 5, 2021, that 'all hell is going to break loose tomorrow.' Accordingly, the Select Committee seeks both documents and your deposition testimony regarding these and multiple other matters that are within the scope of the Select Committee's inquiry."

Bannon, who had been an adviser to Trump, believed that President Donald Trump, who left office in January 2021, exerted executive privilege over their communications and therefore refused to provide requested documentation and correspondence. After Bannon was indicted and prior to the beginning of a trial to determine his fate, Trump rescinded the executive privilege and Bannon agreed to provide the information requested. The Department of Justice moved forward with the trial regardless and was rewarded with a conviction and a prison term for the commentator.
