Former Trump White House official Steve Bannon was found guilty of contempt of Congress Friday for ignoring a subpoena from the congressional Jan. 6 select committee.
Bannon faces 30 days to a year in prison for two misdemeanor charges after he was charged by the Department of Justice.
The former campaign strategist and White House aide, who claimed executive privilege and maintained his innocence, could also be fined between $100 and $100,000, according to NBC News.
U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols discharged the jury after hearing closing arguments from both sides.
The last time anyone was found guilty of contempt of Congress was in 1934, according to Just The News investigative journalist John Solomon.
Solomon warned that this sets a new standard for both parties.
