WASHINGTON (AP) – Trump ally Steve Bannon has asked the Supreme Court to delay his prison sentence while he fights his convictions for defying a subpoena from the House committee that investigated the attack on U.S. Capitol.

The request from former President Donald Trump’s longtime ally on Friday came after a federal appeals court panel rejected his bid to avoid reporting to prison by July 1 to serve his four-month sentence.

Bannon was convicted nearly two years ago of two counts of contempt of Congress but is appealing the conviction. The high court previously refused to delay a similar prison sentence for another former Trump aide, Peter Navarro.
