Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon is expected to turn himself in this morning after being indicted by a federal grand jury for contempt of Congress. He’s also expected to face a judge this afternoon.

He also refused to turn over documents to the committee. The House cited Bannon for contempt and the matter was referred to the Justice Department. A federal grand jury handed down the indictment. Attorney General Merrick Garland has released a statement saying the Justice Department is committed to the rule of law. That’s notable as former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has also refused to honor a similar subpoena.
