Bannon Begins Four-Month Prison Sentence for Contempt of Congress


Stephen K. Bannon, a former top adviser to President Donald Trump, arrived at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, on Monday, beginning his four-month prison sentence for contempt of Congress. Bannon, who also hosts the War Room podcast, checked in around noon, according to CBS News.

The move comes after the Supreme Court denied his request to remain free pending the outcome of his appeal. Earlier, a federal appeals court had upheld his conviction in May 2024. The sentence stems from Bannon’s defiance of a subpoena from the January 6 Select Committee.

Prior to his stint as CEO of the Trump campaign in 2016, Bannon was executive chairman of Breitbart News. He later joined the Trump administration as chief strategist and served until August 2017, when he rejoined Breitbart News until departing in early 2018.

Bannon’s prison sentence marks the second such instance for a Trump administration official, following Peter Navarro, a former White House adviser, who reported to prison in March 2024 to begin his four-month sentence for contempt of Congress.
