Bannon Turns Himself In on Contempt of Congress Charges

Stephen K. Bannon, who served as a senior aide to former President Donald J. Trump, turned himself into the authorities on Monday morning, three days after he was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to provide information to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Mr. Bannon arrived at the F.B.I.’s Washington field office at around 9:30 a.m., where he surrendered to the authorities.

He is expected to make his initial appearance in federal magistrate court on Monday afternoon before Judge Robin M. Meriweather.

While the court proceeding is expected to be swift, with Mr. Bannon entering his plea, it kicks off what could be a lengthy battle between a member of Mr. Trump’s inner circle and the federal government, as it seeks to enforce a congressional subpoena.
