Former President Trump advisor Steve Bannon was handed down a four-month jail sentence to go along with a $6,500 fine for ignoring a congressional subpoena to appear before them. Now, Bannon is speaking out furiously against what he calls the “illegitimate regime” and even celebrating the end of their administration.
Once November’s Red Wave is complete, leftist Democrats will no longer be able to push through their radical agenda.
Speaking outside the courthouse, Bannon responded with strong words:
“I want to thank all you guys for coming,” he said on Friday. “Remember this illegitimate regime, their judgment day is on eight November when the Biden administration ends. I want to thank you all for coming. And remember, take down the CCP. Thank you.”

Writing on Twitter, Jack Posobiec noted that, among others, Henry Kissinger, Janet Reno, Eric Holder, Lois Lerner, and even former Trump Attorney General Bill Barr have all been held in contempt of Congress and nary a follow-up was conducted. Certainly, none of them were ever sentenced with a fine and no one ever mentioned possible jail time as a penalty for their “crime.”

But here is Steve Bannon, a man once associated with Trump but vociferously outspoken against the corruption of Joe Biden and Democrats, who appears headed to the unprecedented prospect of time behind bars. It is one of many unprecedented features of the Joe Biden regime, who just a few months ago unleashed the Department of Justice and FBI on former president Donald Trump’s private residence.
ZeroHedge provided a timeline of Bannon’s kangaroo court experience and the steep partisan motivations of the charges, writing that this case stretches back from over a year ago.
Bannon, 68, was charged with two counts last November; failure to appear to give testimony, and failure to produce “documents and communications,” or “provide a log of any withheld records.”
He was held in contempt in October 2021 by a House vote of 229-202, after refusing to comply with the subpoena. In July, a federal jury convicted Bannon of two contempt charges.
While Bannon argued that he could not be compelled to testify over executive privilege, the Biden administration – and federal prosecutors, said he had engaged in a “bad-faith strategy.”
Considering the inaction against countless other political operatives, such as Obama’s AG Holder and or IRS chief Lerner, the Department of Justice filing barely makes sense. Filed last Monday, it says in part:
“From the moment that the Defendant, Stephen K. Bannon, accepted service of a subpoena from the House Select Committee … he has pursued a bad-faith strategy of defiance and contempt…The defendant flouted the Committee’s authority and ignored the subpoena’s demands.
“For his sustained, bad-faith contempt of Congress, the Defendant should be sentenced to six months’ imprisonment—the top end of the Sentencing Guidelines’ range—and fined $200,000—based on his insistence on paying the maximum fine rather than cooperate with the Probation Office’s routine pre-sentencing financial investigation.”
In response to the unfathomably partisan decision, Bannon received the support from a wide swath of conservatives. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted “I stand with Steve Bannon” while Julie Kelley – the hero journalist who helped cover the insane Grethcen Whitmer kidnapping trial and continues to be one of the few people looking into January 6th – simply remarked: “political prisoner.”
