DOJ Requests Bannon Start to Serve Prison Sentence

Trump ally Steven Bannon may soon be getting an orange jumpsuit to replace his usual disheveled look.

Bannon is one of many Trump associates who found himself targeted by Congress and the DOJ after the January 6 riot.

He recently lost his appeal, so the now federal prosecutors want to see him ordered to prison to begin his four-month sentence.

Time to Go to Jail

Bannon’s sentence was stayed by Judge Carl Nichols.

Nichols, who was originally appointed to the DC Court by Donald Trump, then added to the FISA court by John Roberts, had issued the stay while the appeals process played out.

Bannon has lost his appeal, so the DOJ wants him in jail, even though he is likely to take his appeal to a higher court.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled, “We conclude that none of the information sought in the trial subpoenas was relevant to the elements of the contempt offense, nor to any affirmative defense Bannon was entitled to present at trial.

"The judgment of conviction and sentence [is] affirmed.”

On Tuesday, prosecutors filed a motion on the matter, arguing, "Consequently, there is no longer a 'substantial question of law that is likely to result in a reversal or an order for a new trial.'"

Bannon responded, "I'm shocked they want to silence the voice of MAGA."

Bannon once worked for Trump, but they had a falling out in the early days of the administration. They have since kissed and made up, with Bannon again one of Trump’s most ardent supporters.

Bannon thrives on chaos, and he has made some pretty outrageous statements in defense of Trump, hence why he was caught up in this legal mess.

When he was initially arrested, he vowed to take down the entire system with him, and he still seems intent on doing that while also calling out the establishment and politicians who merely say the right things without acting on them.

Believe me, the DOJ would love to have Bannon in prison during this election cycle simply to shut him up, if nothing else.
