Judge denies Steve Bannon's motion to dismiss indictment, moving case toward July trial
Bannon, who served as a senior adviser to former President Donald Trump, is facing two counts of contempt of Congress.

WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Wednesday denied former Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s motion to dismiss a criminal indictment against him on two counts of contempt of Congress.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols, who was appointed to the D.C. District Court by former President Donald Trump in 2019, heard hours of arguments from Bannon’s legal team and federal prosecutors. Bannon’s attorneys presented the judge with several arguments as to why the indictment should be dismissed – not the least of which was, they said, that Bannon was protected by executive privilege – but “each falls short,” Nichols said.

"The court cannot conclude as a matter of law" that the committee was improperly constituted, nor that Bannon is correct to argue that the subpoena wasn't properly cut and the indictment is invalid, Nichols said Wednesday. "After all, the full House approved" referring Bannon's contempt to the Justice Department to be prosecuted, he added. (Reported by CNN)

“The bottom line is: The motion to dismiss the indictment is denied,” Nichols said.
