Steve Bannon Surrenders to FBI

He was indicted for contempt of Congress

Former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon surrendered to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Monday after being indicted on contempt of Congress due to his refusal to cooperate with the congressional committee investigating the Capitol riot.

A federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., indicted Bannon on Friday on two counts of contempt of Congress. Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement that Bannon's indictment reflected the Justice Department's "steadfast commitment" to showing the American people "by word and deed that the department adheres to the rule of law, follows the facts and the law and pursues equal justice under the law."

Bannon is set to appear before a judge in Washington later Monday. Cameras caught Bannon arriving at the FBI's Washington Field Office on Monday morning.
