Steve Bannon was indicted by a federal grand jury on Friday, charged with contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions from the select House Committee tasked with investigating the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.

The former Trump adviser was charged Friday with two contempt counts: one for refusing to appear for a deposition and another for declining to produce documents requested by the committee. If convicted, Bannon could face up to a year behind bars and a fine of up to $100,000, NBC News reported.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said via statement: “Since my first day in office, I have promised Justice Department employees that together we would show the American people by word and deed that the department adheres to the rule of law, follows the facts and the law, and pursues equal justice under the law. Today’s charges reflect the department’s steadfast commitment to these principles.”
