A DC jury on Friday reached a verdict in Steven Bannon’s criminal contempt case after a four-day trial.
After deliberating for three hours, the jury found Steven Bannon guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress.
Bannon is facing up to two years in prison.
Steve Bannon blasted the “gutless” January 6 Committee members in remarks outside of the courtroom.
“I only have one disappointment and that is the gutless members of that show trial committee, the J6 Committee didn’t have the guts to come down here and testify in open court,” Bannon said.
Bannon’s lawyer said he will file an appeal.
“You will see this case reversed on appeal,” Bannon’s defense counsel said to reporters outside of the courtroom.

Steve Bannon, the former chief strategist for President Donald Trump, faced two contempt of Congress charges for defying subpoenas to the controversial and completely biased January 6 Select Committee.
Recall, a DC grand jury indicted former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon last November for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the House January 6 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 said.
