Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to parents, Charles Boris and Marylyn Bannon, Steve Bannon leaves this Monday to begin his four month imprisonment, and remains aggressive. Despite being due for imprisonment for contempt of Congress in relation to the investigating committee on the January 6th Capitol invasion, Bannon has not changed his outlook or stance.

When talking to Jonathan Karl, the host of the ABC program ‘This Week,’ Bannon glowered, insisted that he was a political prisoner, and claimed that his imprisonment would strengthen not weaken his impact. When asked by the reporter if he considers himself a ‘political prisoner’, Bannon replied: ‘Listen, I am a journalist and I am political prisoner.

It won’t change me. It will not suppress my voice. My voice will not be suppressed when I’m there,’ which only demonstrated his reckless attitude to legal consequences of his actions. His conviction based on his refusal to honor a congressional subpoena to the House select committee investigating the violent incidents that transpired on the January 6th, when supporters of then President Trump stormed the U.

S Capitol.

Bannon's Legal Odyssey

Their voyage to Bannon’s imprisonment started from the time when he was sentenced in October 2022 by United States District Judge Carl Nichols who ordered him a four-month imprisonment.

After the conviction, Bannon’s defense practicing their appellate which afforded him a brief stay devoid of confinement. Nevertheless, this period of time was over last month when the D. C. Circuit Court of Appeals reaffirmed his conviction that left Bannon to obtain parole for the prison term beginning July 1st as directed by Judge Nichols.

In legal troubles, Bannon has not shown any remorsefulness and has fully supported incitement against what he sees as the illegitimate January 6th committee. ”If it was not until I went to prison that the House begins to move, that the illegitimate J6 committee begins to be delegitimized, then, by golly, my going to prison was worth it,” he concluded.

The January 6th committee created by House resolution 17 passed in 2021 with a vote of 222 to 190 had two Republicans on it for a short time Kinzinger of Illinois and Cheney of Wyoming. So as Bannon goes to prison, his case remains a source of extensive political controversy and schism, illustrating how much has not been settled and how much debate there continues to be over the horrific occurrences that transpired in the United States on that ill-fated January morning.
