2020 ELECTION/STEVE BANNON/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Stephen K. Bannon, the right-wing podcaster and longtime confidant of former president Donald Trump, was convicted Friday [July 22, 2022] of contempt of Congress for his refusal to provide documents or testimony to a House committee probing the Jan. 6, 2021, attack.

Bannon, 68, is the closest person to Trump to be convicted of a crime amid the fallout from the attack on the Capitol, which occurred as lawmakers met to formally tally the 2020 presidential election result. The contempt case involved legislative efforts to investigate the Jan. 6 violence and what led up to it, however, rather than the actual events of the day.”
