WASHINGTON – Steve Bannon appealed Wednesday his four-month sentence for contempt of Congress by arguing he wasn’t allowed to explain his reasons for defying a House subpoena at trial, which his lawyer said violated his 5th and 6th Amendment rights under the Constitution.

Bannon was convicted in July 2022 of defying a subpoena for documents and testimony to the House committee investigating the Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021. He remains free while appealing the case.
