Steve Bannon / PHOTO: Associated Press (Headline USA) Longtime Trump ally Steve Bannon appeared before a judge to face criminal contempt charges for defying a subpoena from Congress’ partisan Jan. 6 committee , then declared combatively outside court that he was “taking on the Biden regime” in fighting the charges.

On Monday, Wyoming Republicans voted officially to stop recognizing Rep. Liz Cheney as a member of the party.
The 67-year-old Bannon surrendered earlier in the day to FBI agents.

If convicted, Bannon faces a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of one year behind bars on each count, prosecutors said.Outside the courthouse, a large inflatable rat made to look like Republican former President Donald Trump was on the sidewalk as a crowd waited for Bannon to leave.
