On Monday, former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon surrendered himself to the FBI on charges of criminal contempt of Congress for his refusal to cooperate with the partisan House select committee on the January 6 Capitol riot. Bannon was indicted by a grand jury on Saturday.
Bannon is accused of failing to appear for an October 14 deposition before the panel, and for refusing to provide documents to the committee. He faces a minimum of 30 days in jail, with a maximum of one year if convicted, as well as up to a $1,000 fine for each charge.

“We’re going to go on the offense,” he added. “We’re tired of playing defense.”
