Trump ally Steve Bannon says he’s ‘proud to go to prison’ as he surrenders for contempt of Congress conviction

Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon will report to jail in Danbury, CT after being convicted of contempt of Congress and losing appeals.

Trump ally Steve Bannon surrendered to officials at a federal prison in Danbury, Conn., on Monday for his contempt of Congress conviction, saying he was “proud” to do so as a “martyr” for the MAGA movement.

Bannon, 70, held a press conference with far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), 2024 Minnesota Republican Senate candidate Royce White and fans of his “War Room” podcast a little before reporting to FCI Danbury at noon.

“I am proud to go to prison,” he told his supporters. “If this is what it takes to stand up to tyranny; if this is what it takes to stand up to the [Attorney General Merrick] Garland corrupt criminal DOJ; if this is what it takes to stand up to [House Speaker emerita] Nancy Pelosi; if this is what it takes to stand up to Joe Biden — I’m proud to do it.”

A Catholic priest at a nearby retreat house in Connecticut made a cameo following his remarks and vowed to pray for Bannon
