Steve Bannon is upset with being found guilty of contempt of Congress, as he should be.
After Steve Bannon was found guilty he spoke to reporters outside of the Washington D.C. Federal courthouse where his trial is taking place.
To the large group of press members, Bannon explained how out of everyone in the Trump administration who had to testify in front of Congress he has done so the most and explained in detail how over the last four years he has had to undergo over 50 hours of intense interrogations.
Bannon concluded his statement by saying “I stand with Trump and the Constitution”.

The Post Millenial had these details to add:
Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon was found guilty by a DC court of contempt of Congress after defying a subpoena from the House’s January 6 committee.
Bannon had pleaded not guilty to the charges. He faces a minimum sentence of 30 days in jail. Sentencing will take place on October 21.
The committee had wanted documents from Bannon because he had been in contact with Trump while the events on the Capitol took place on that day.
Bannon had argued that the documents requested by the committee were under protection under former President Trump’s claims of executive privilege, as they were the subject of a pending court battle.
The prosecution argued succesfully that Bannon ignored the requests for the documents, while his legal team said that Bannon did not ignore the subpoena and was in communication with the committee on why there would be delays in handing over the evidence.
