(Trends Wide) — Steve Bannon, a former adviser to then-President Trump, arrived at the FBI’s Washington field office on Monday to turn himself in after being charged with criminal contempt on Friday.
Bannon was defiant when addressing the television cameras, saying, “We are going to end the Biden regime.”
Bannon is expected to have a first appearance in federal court on Monday afternoon.
Before turning himself in, Bannon went live on social media to tell his followers to “stay focused.”
“I don’t want anyone to take their eyes off what we do every day, okay?” Bannon told a camera on his “WarRoom” online show.
The 67-year-old was charged with one count related to his refusal to appear for a deposition and another for failing to produce documents in connection with the House Select Committee investigation into the January 6 insurrection on the US Capitol. .
Bannon went on to say, “We have Hispanics on our side, blacks on our side. We are bringing down the Biden regime every day.”
“I want you to focus on the message,” Bannon said before entering the FBI office. “Thank you”.
