Federal prosecutors are recommending a six-month sentence for Steve Bannon for his contempt of Congress.
In a court filing on Monday, the Department of Justice argued that former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon should get jail time. The DOJ came to the consensus that Bannon should pay a $200,000 fine for his “sustained bad faith of Congress.”
Bannon was convicted of two counts of contempt of Congress back in July for declining to cooperate with a subpoena from the January 6th Committee.
He will be sentenced later this week.
