Former Trump mastermind Steve Bannon jailed for contempt

Trump’s Brainiac gets a slap on the wrist

Steve Bannon, a prominent figure on the American right who served as a senior strategist for former President Donald Trump, has been sentenced by a judge to four months in prison for refusing to cooperate with lawmakers investigating last year’s US Capitol attack by a pro-Trump mob.

His lawyers have said they will appeal his conviction.

US District Judge Carl Nichols during a sentencing hearing also ordered the former adviser to pay a fine of $US6,500 ($10,298).
