On Tuesday, a federal judge rejected a request from Steve Bannon to delay his criminal contempt for one month.
Fox News reports:
Tuesday morning, the former White House aide’ss attorney Evan Corcoran asked Judge Carl Nichols for a one-month continuance following an argument between the parties over admitting into evidence letters between Bannon and the House Jan. 6 committee.
“The motion to continue is denied,” Nichols stated following a short recess after the motion was formally made.Corcoran said there was a “seismic shift” in the parties’ understanding surrounding the judge’s past rulings.
Judge Nichols ultimately said that the letters could be admitted, although there were discussions about whether to redact portions of them to limit the scope of what jurors could see.
Bannon’s trial comes months after he was charged with two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with the committee’s requests.
