Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon has surrendered to authorities to face contempt of Congress charges after refusing to give evidence about the Capitol riot.
Bannon defied a summons to testify on his knowledge of a protest, which resulted in people storming the US Capitol.
On Friday, Bannon was formally charged by the justice department.
He now faces up to one year in prison and a fine of $100,000.
Speaking on his way into the building, Bannon said: “We’re taking down the Biden regime every day.”
According to subpoena documents, Bannon – who hosts a podcast called War Room – said on the evening before January 6th that “all hell is going to break loose tomorrow”.
His lawyers have argued that his communications with Donald Trump are protected.
