Former Trump Political Adviser Steve Bannon’s prison sentence is being delayed.
In a court filing Monday, Judge Carl Nichols said Bannon “is not likely to flee or pose a danger to the safety of any other person … Or the community if released.”
Last month, he was sentenced to four months of jail time as well as a $6,500 fine.
Bannon was convicted in July on two contempt of Congress charges for not complying with subpoenas from the Democrat-led January Sixth Committee.
In the meantime, Bannon is stressing the importance of election day, calling it a referendum on one-party rule.
