Bannon pleads not guilty on Capitol case

Former US president Donald Trump’s longtime adviser Steve Bannon has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges that he defied a congressional subpoena from a US House panel investigating the deadly January 6 Capitol riot, according to court documents.

Bannon, who made his initial court appearance in court on Monday, was indicted last week by a federal grand jury on two counts of contempt of Congress.

Bannon has vowed to fight the congressional subpoena, telling reporters outside the courthouse on Monday that he believes the prosecution is a politically motivated attack against him by President Joe Biden, Attorney General Merrick Garland and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

He was due to be arraigned in court on Thursday but agreed to waive his right to a formal reading of the indictment, according to court documents filed on Wednesday.
