UPDATED: Steve Bannon Shrugs Off Jail Hearing: 'I Will Be Back'

Conservative podcaster and convicted criminal Steve Bannon laughed about a hearing Thursday that could send him to jail for four months.

About an hour before U.S. District Court Judge Carl Nichols, an appointee of Donald Trump, was set to hear arguments, Bannon appeared on his War Room podcast with Liberty University Dean Dave Brat.

“Everything is on a downhill descent after we rose so high, and we’re at our peak,” Brat complained during a commemoration of D-Day.

“Well, we’re going to get back to that. That’s MAGA,” Bannon replied before laughing about his court hearing.

“I have a previously scheduled event that I’m going to have to punch out [until] 5 to 7 o’clock tonight,” he giggled, suggesting he believed he would not be remanded on Thursday.

“Natalie Winters and I will be back to take the deck and the con and to conclude. We’re going to have more commemoration [of D-Day] then.”

Bannon is facing four months in jail after he was found guilty of ignoring a subpoena from the Jan. 6 Committee. After a failed appeal, he was scheduled to return to Nichols’ courtroom.

UPDATE: Bannon must report to jail on July 1st, just in time to miss the Republican National convention. He’ll be out 4 days before the election, hardly enough time for him to meddle in 2024’s election. – Karoli
