The January 6th House Committee has announced they will move to hold Steve Bannon in criminal contempt of Congress for defying their subpoena related to the investigation of the storming of the U.S. Capitol.

Bannon is one of several major allies to former President Donald Trump who was recently served with a subpoena ordering him to provide documents and a private deposition to the committee. Bannon’s lawyer made questionable claims of executive privilege as he said his client would not comply, and on Thursday, Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) announced the pursuit of criminal contempt against Bannon.
