The judge says he's ready to allow Bannon to remain in the country while he appeals his convictions, as Bannon isn't likely to leave or pose a risk to the public.

Bannon did not respond to requests for evidence and documents from the committee investigating his involvement in January. 6th, 2021 assault on the U.S. Capitol.

The lawmakers on the House Select Committee wanted to find out why he declared one day prior to the attack that "all hell will be unleashed in the coming days."

Federal prosecutors are seeking what they described as a "severe" punishment: six months in prison and the payment of $200,000.
