A federal jury on Friday found former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon guiltyof contempt for ignoring subpoenas from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection.
After three hours of deliberations, the jury found Bannon guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress, which carry a minimum sentence of 30 days behind bars and fines of up to $100,000.
Bannon’s team rested their case on Thursday without calling any defense witnesses — including Bannon himself — and instead asked the judge to acquit him, according to The Associated Press.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Molly Gaston said during closing arguments that the subpoenas were straightforward and that Bannon chose to blow them off.
“Our government only works if people show up. It only works if people play by the rules, and it only works if people are held accountable when they do not,” Gaston said, according to NBC News.
Twitter is running with Josh Hawley's solidarity fist and flee moment during January 6 hearing
Twitter users had a field day with Sen. Josh Hawley's cameo role during Thursday's January 6 committee hearing.
The committee showed the now-infamous photo of the Missouri Republican raising his fist in solidarity with protesters gathered outside security gates as he walked across the East front of the US Capitol from a safe space behind barriers.
Then, they showed a video of Hawley running away after the protesters he helped rile stormed the US Capitol.
That's when the chicken, Forrest Gump and running gifs, including some set to music, fired up Twitter. Here are some reactions:
