Judge Denies Steve Bannon’s Motion for New Trial and Dismissal in Contempt of Congress Case

A federal judge on Friday denied Steve Bannon’s request for a new trial and dismissal in the contempt of Congress case.

“In the end, defendant offers little to demonstrate that the actual testimony be would elicit would have been material to the issues at trial. That falls short of his burden,” U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols, a Trump appointee wrote.

“Defendant also argues that his rights “to confrontation, to effective counsel, and to a fair trial” were also denied. But these arguments are underdeveloped. Defendant never explains the governing legal test for these theories, nor explains how the facts of his case apply given that governing framework,” the judge wrote.

Judge Nichols also presided over the trial against Steve Bannon in July.

Bannon is facing up to two years in prison.

Sentencing is set for October 21.

After deliberating for three hours, a DC jury in July found Steven Bannon guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress for defying subpoenas to the controversial and completely biased January 6 Select Committee.

Bannon refused to provide documents to the January 6 Committee because President Trump asserted executive privilege.

“Based on long-standing U.S. Department of Justice authority, you should not appear for deposition or provide documents,” Bannon argued.

Steve Bannon blasted the “gutless” January 6 Committee members in remarks outside of the courtroom in July after the guilty verdict was announced.

    Every conservative with a trial in DC should request a change of venue. There’s no way to receive a fair trial when the entire city is liberal or very liberal – https://bestneighborhood.org/conservative-vs-liberal-map-washington-dc/
