Steve Bannon pleads not guilty to contempt of Congress

The announcement came ahead of a hearing scheduled for Thursday morning – scheduled to be Bannon’s first appearance before U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols, who will oversee his case and any potential contempt trial for failure to testify or hand over documents in the House Jan. 6. examination.

Bannon said he did not need to have his charges read by the judge in open court, according to the case.

This should mean the court could skip a formal trial over Thursday. The virtual status conference scheduled for this morning would then be a simple check-in with the judge to discuss timing and other procedural steps in the case.

Bannon appeared in court Monday after his arrest. He is not detained.
