Steve Bannon moved one step closer to jail for refusing to comply with a House subpoena during the Jan. 6 investigation.

The former White House chief strategist and right-wing podcaster's conviction for refusing a congressional subpoena to testify was unanimously upheld by a three-judge panel of the D.C. Court of Appeals, but his four-month jail sentence was placed on hold while their ruling is reviewed, reported Politico.

The House select committee called for Bannon to testify and produce documents related to his role in Donald Trump's scheme to remain in office despite losing the 2020 election, which culminated in the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Bannon was present at the "command center" set up at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., where Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman led efforts to stop the certification of Joe Biden's election win on Jan. 6, 2021. 

Giuliani and Eastman have had their law licenses suspended and have been charged with crimes related to those efforts, and the former president himself has been charged with election-related crimes in the District of Columbia and Georgia.

Other Trump allies have been charged or pleaded guilty in Georgia, Arizona and Michigan for their roles in the fake electors scheme.
