Steve Bannon, chairman of the the far-right website Breitbart News Network and former chief strategist to Donald Trump, has been sentenced to four months in prison. Is it because he’s a terrible person who’s done irreparable harm to the United States? It’d be nice if he were held accountable for spreading racist misinformation and enabling Trump’s rise to power, but that’s not why he may be incarcerated. Here’s what you need to know about Steve Bannon’s conviction.

What was Steve Bannon convicted of?

In the summer of 2022, Steve Bannon was found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress after he ignored a subpoena and refused to testify before the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol Building. Even though the actual conviction was months ago, Bannon is back in the news now because on October 21, 2022, a federal judge sentenced him to four months in prison and fined him $ 6,500.
