Steve Bannon, former Trump adviser and host of the "War Room" podcast, was found guilty of two charges of contempt of Congress by a federal jury on July 22. He reportedly refused to comply with a subpoena issued by the Jan. 6 select committee investigating the 2021 Capitol protests. On Monday, the Department of Justice recommended that Bannon be sentenced to prison for six months and hit with a $200,000 fine.

The DOJ's sentencing memorandum, filed on October 17, accused Bannon of pursuing "a bad-faith strategy of defiance and contempt," claiming he "flouted the [Jan. 6] Committee's authority and ignored the subpoena's demands."
