Following the horrifying events of January 6, 2021, it was clear that an investigation into its instigators was necessary but the instigators who led an attack against the U.S. government have often been unwilling to work with that same government. Unfortunately for them, that isn’t a choice they’re allowed to make.

Steve Bannon, host of a far-right podcast and former chief strategist to the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice and tried to stage a coup, was one of those participants in the planning of a coup who refused to testify in front of Congress when subpoenaed. He was also the first convicted of contempt of Congress for his refusal, making him guilty of yet another crime.

Bannon was indicted and sent to prison for defrauding Trump’s supporters by collecting donations for a border wall that he then pocketed. Trump’s supporters, somehow, still support Bannon, and the former president pardoned Bannon for that crime. That will not be happening under President Joe Biden. For the crime of ignoring a congressional subpoena, Bannon will be forced to face the consequences of that decision.

According to POLITICO:

‘The Justice Department is recommending a six-month jail sentence and $200,000 fine for Steve Bannon, the longtime adviser to former President Donald Trump who defied a subpoena to the Jan. 6 select committee. Prosecutors said Bannon, from the moment he received the select committee subpoena on Sept. 2021, “has pursued a bad-faith strategy of defiance and contempt.”’

Twitter had a lot to say about the proposed sentence for Bannon’s crime, with most agreeing that it wasn’t enough and that he deserves far worse. Read some of their comments below:
