A federal jury has convicted former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon on two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol. After Trump lost the 2020 race, Bannon helped devise ways to overturn the election and keep Trump in the White House. Bannon, who is expected to appeal, is scheduled to be sentenced in October. He faces up to one year in prison.
This comes as Republican Congressmember Liz Cheney says the January 6 committee might subpoena Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, if she refuses to answer questions about her role in the effort to overturn the election.
