Trump ally surrenders to face contempt charges


Trump ally Steve Bannon has surrendered to authorities to face contempt of Congress charges after refusing to give evidence about the Capitol riot.

On Friday, the justice department formally charged Mr Bannon, a former Trump White House strategist.
He now faces up to a year in prison and a  USD$100,000  fine.

67-year-old Steve Bannon surrendered to officials at the FBI’s Washington DC field office on Monday morning.
