A US committee investigating the January 6th Capitol Hill Riots has today voted to find former Trump adviser Steve Bannon in contempt of congress.

The vote comes after Bannon refused to comply with a subpoena served by the committee. The committee believes MBannon has significant and integral information into the events proceeding the riots.

Trump is attempting to assert Executive Privilege over the documents.

The Wire’s Sophie Ellis spoke with Senior Non-resident Fellow at the United States Studies Centre, Bruce Wolpe, about these latest developments.
