A federal court in Washington, D.C., ordered former Trump White House aide Steve Bannon to prison, ending bid and appeals process that he started after being sentenced in October 2022.

Bannon will seve a fourth-month sentence after being found guilty in July 2022 for defying subpoenas from the Democrat-led House Jan. 6 Committee.

Bannon's sentence was put on hold pending appeal, and his lawyers made their case to a three-judge federal appeals court panel in November 2023.

The appeals court in May upheld Bannon's conviction, and federal prosecutors soon filed a motion asking U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols to order Bannon to report to prison. Federal prosecutors told the judge there was "no legal basis" for the continued stay of the sentence after the federal appeals court rejected the appeal, NBC News reports.
