Steve Bannon sentenced to 4 months in prison
[www.npr.org]

A judge has sentenced former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon to 4 months incarceration and a $6,500 fine for criminal contempt of Congress. The judge says he's prepared to let Bannon remain free while he appeals his convictions as Bannon is unlikely to flee or pose a danger to the community.

Bannon flouted demands for documents and testimony from the panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. Lawmakers on the House Select Committee wanted to know why he said a day before the siege that "all hell is going to break loose tomorrow."

Federal prosecutors were seeking what they describe as a "severe" penalty: six months in jail and a fine of $200,000. In court papers earlier this week, they said Bannon pursued "a bad faith strategy of defiance and contempt."

Bannon sat quietly and did not react as asked U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols delivered the sentence.

Fed prison a country club compared to State prison. Sorry it isn’t a State confinement.

Another Trump adviser, Peter Navarro, has been charged with contempt of Congress after defying a subpoena and stands trial in November.

>as Bannon is unlikely to flee

I'm surprised he had a gap in Viktor Orban visits.

The judge stayed the brief imprisonment/token fine in case Bannon wants to file an appeal.

It's no longer the state prison I'd want him to serve in. I'd have him bustin' up rocks.

Maybe Trump should get into the Trump branded private prison business so he can profit off of his convicted followers. And have a special Presidential Suite built for himself.

Surest way to rid ourselves of the plague that has become the private prison industry.

There's no prison that can hold Race Bannon.

Oh, I thought this thread was on Johnny Quest.
