Steve Bannon Begins Prison Term for Contempt of Congress Conviction


Former US President Don ald Trump’s advisor Steve Bannon has started his prison sentence on charges of contempt of Congress. He was convicted of failing to comply with a congressional subpoena during the investigation of the 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

Donald Trump’s former White House strategist Steve Bannon on Monday began a four-month sentence at a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut. He was convicted of disobeying a congressional summons.

Bannon is the second former Trump aide to be jailed on charges of contempt of Congress. The first, Peter Navarro, began a four-month sentence earlier this year. Bannon was taken into custody just after 12 noon and taken to jail in a black van.

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected Bannon’s petition seeking permission to stay out of jail during his appeal. Bannon filed an emergency appeal on Friday.

Outside the jail, Bannon said, “I’m proud to go to prison today. I have no regrets, but I’m proud of what I did.”

Bannon and Navarro face up to life in prison after pleading guilty to failing to comply with a House of Representatives committee subpoena on January 6, 2021. The Supreme Court on Friday rejected Bannon’s petition to postpone his sentencing.

Bannon said that he had not decided not to answer the committee’s questions, but rather that he had decided not to act on the advice of his lawyers.

Both Bannon and Navarro have played prominent roles in Trump’s support, and Bannon is also a strong candidate for re-election.

Limited Contact with the Outside World: Bannon’s Prison Situation

For convicted felons, there are few better places to be than the prison where Bannon will spend the next four months. Danbury has a makeshift prison, which holds only a small number of prisoners – less than 1,200 men and women.

Bannon will be held in a less secure facility there, which may house white-collar criminals as well as some violent and sex offenders. Various snacks like peanuts to plantain chips are available in the commissary there, according to an online list.

According to people familiar with the prison, prisoners do not have access to the internet. Inmates at Danbury have access to send emails with no attachments, but all through a monitored system with a delay. According to the Federal Prison Code, prisoners are not allowed to conduct business in prison.

Additionally, inmates at Danbury receive a number of phone minutes a month, which they can use on a wall-mounted phone in 15-minute increments. Once the month is up, there is no option to meet them again.(News Source)
