Because of Steve Bannon's disdain for Congress, federal prosecutors are proposing that he serve a term of six months in prison.
The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) stated in a court filing that former Chief Strategist of the White House Steve Bannon ought to serve time in prison on Monday. The Department of Justice has reached the conclusion that Bannon should be required to pay a fine of $200,000 for his "continued bad faith of Congress."

Back in July, Bannon was found guilty of two counts of contempt of Congress for ignoring a subpoena issued by the January 6th Committee and refusing to comply with its requests.
The judge will hand down a sentence for him later on this week.
