Bannon should report for prison now, Justice Department tells judge

Former Trump political adviser and right-wing podcaster Stephen K. Bannon should report to prison immediately to begin serving a four-month prison term for contempt of Congress now that an appeals court has upheld his conviction, federal prosecutors argued to his sentencing judge Tuesday.

In a three-page filing, prosecutors said that no substantial legal questions remain over Bannon’s two-count conviction for refusing to provide documents or testimony to a House committee probing the Jan. 6, 2021, attack after a panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Friday rejected Bannon’s appeal on all grounds.
