Former Trump White House aid Steve Bannon has been sentenced to 4 months jail time for defying a subpoena from the House probe of the Jan. 6 riot.
The proceeding, which began at 9 a.m. ET in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., makes Bannon one of the highest-profile figures to be sentenced to jail on charges related to the insurrection. He is expected to appeal his conviction.
Federal prosecutors wanted the court to sentence Bannon to six months in jail — the top end of the federal sentencing guidelines range — and the maximum fine of $200,000.
