Steve Bannon to report to low-security prison in Connecticut on July 1: report

“Low security Federal Correctional Institutions (FCIs) have double-fenced perimeters, mostly dormitory or cubicle housing, and strong work and program components."


Steve Bannon will be ordered by a judge to report to Federal Correctional Institution Danbury in Danbury, Connecticut, according to a new report. This comes after his conviction was upheld for being held in contempt of Congress.  

According to the Tennessee Star, Bannon will report to the Connecticut facility next week on July 1. An executive assistant and operations administrator for the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), Sabrina Moore, told the outlet, “Mr. Bannon has been initially designated to FCI Danbury, CT which is a low security male facility." 

Danbury is designated as a low-security prison, and Bannon will be set to serve out his four-month sentence with over 1,000 other inmates at the facility. Danbury also has a satellite location minimum security prison with just around 100 inmates.  

According to the BOP, "Minimum security institutions, also known as Federal Prison Camps (FPCs), have dormitory housing, a relatively low staff-to-inmate ratio, and limited or no perimeter fencing." They are usually work and program-oriented. Low-security prisons, however, are a little worse for those who are imprisoned. “Low security Federal Correctional Institutions (FCIs) have double-fenced perimeters, mostly dormitory or cubicle housing, and strong work and program components," the BOP states. The staff-to-inmate ratio is also a lot higher in low-security prisons.  

Bannon appealed his case to the Supreme Court last Friday and Chief Justice Roberts gave the DOJ until Wednesday to weigh in on the issue. The sentence for Bannon comes from when he ignored a subpoena from the Jan. 6 committee and was then held in contempt by Congress. Bannon's attorney argued that because executive privilege was invoked in his case, the proper response to the subpoena was to ignore it.  

US Attorney General Merrick Garland ultimately oversees the case with Bannon and other Trump allies who have been held in contempt of Congress, however, Garland himself has also had the same charge made against him by a vote in Congress and the DOJ has refused to prosecute him.  

There have been efforts by Republicans in Congress to throw out contempt of Congress charges, however, the measure has not made it through the House.
