Steve Bannon reports to prison for contempt of Congress sentence

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon surrenders to begin 4-month prison sentence for contempt of Congress, proud to stand up to tyranny.

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon surrendered to law enforcement on Monday to begin his four-month prison sentence for contempt of Congress at the Federal Correctional Institute Danbury in Connecticut. The Supreme Court denied Bannon's request to remain out of prison during the appeals process, upholding his sentence for defying a subpoena from the House select committee investigating the Capitol attack on Jan. 6.

Addressing supporters before entering the Danbury facility, Bannon expressed pride in starting his sentence, stating his commitment to standing up against tyranny, the DOJ, Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden. Joined by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican Senate candidate Royce White, former Blackwater CEO Erik Prince, and a priest, Bannon remained steadfast in his actions, emphasizing that he has no regrets and is proud of what he did.

Despite his imprisonment, Bannon vowed to continue supporting former President Donald Trump's presidential campaign, ensuring that his War Room podcast will thrive. He reassured supporters that his voice is not essential to the populist movement, signaling that victory or death is the only option as he prepares to surrender at Danbury.

With a U.S. district judge mandating his prison reporting date by July 1, Bannon becomes the second Trump adviser to face conviction and imprisonment for non-cooperation with the Jan. 6 panel, following in the footsteps of former adviser Peter Navarro.
