Steve Bannon, a former senior political advisor to President Trump, faced a setback in his contempt of Congress case on Monday. Bannon was charged with criminal contempt for failing to comply with a subpoena from the House January 6 select committee.
Bannon has argued that he was previously unable to testify because of executive privilege. However, he states that he is now willing to testify before the committee because the former President has waived any claims of privilege.
A Trump-appointed federal judge dismissed his motion to delay his trial and rejected Bannon’s defence of Privilege.
Bannon’s trial is scheduled to start next week.
How do you feel about Bannon and his impending trial?
