TRUMP ALLY Rejected By Court

(Patriot.Buzz) – By denying his petition, a federal appeals court panel confirmed that former Trump close associate Steve Bannon would have to serve jail time while appealing his conviction.

Bannon was found guilty of contempt of Congress for not complying with a subpoena issued by the Democratic-run House committee investigating the January 6 events on the Capitol.

Bannon is scheduled to start his four-month prison sentence by July 1. This decision was upheld after U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols concurred with the prosecution’s argument earlier this month.

Although Bannon’s legal team tried to keep him free during his appeal process, potentially to the Supreme Court, the D.C. Circuit Court panel issued a 2-1 decision saying that Bannon must begin his sentence immediately and stick to the usual procedures after a conviction.

Democratic-appointed Judges Cornelia Pillard and Bradley Garcia favored the decision, whereas Trump-appointee Justin Walker dissented to suggest Bannon should remain free until the Supreme Court reviews his case.

Ene though Bannon’s attorneys did not respond to immediate requests for comments, they previously argued that Bannon was engaged in good-faith negotiations with the congressional committee at the time of his charge.

They maintained that Bannon was acting under legal advice when he claimed he was covered by Trump’s executive privilege.

Furthermore, Bannon’s legal team has highlighted the significant legal implications of his case, which they believe requires a Supreme Court review.

They also argued that Bannon should remain free in the lead-up to the 2024 election, considering his crucial role as a top adviser to Trump’s campaign. However, prosecutors dismissed the relevance of Bannon’s political involvement.

In a related case, Trump aide Peter Navarro is also currently serving a similar four-month sentence for contempt of Congress.

The Democratic House January 6 committee concluded its еxtensive 18-month investigation by claiming that Trump had orchestrated a “multi-part conspiracy” to overturn the 2020 election results and failed to prevent his supporters from assaulting the Capitol.
