The House is expected to act quickly to find Steve Bannon in criminal contempt of Congress, and the Justice Department will indict him within days.
NBC News’ Pete Williams explains how quickly the charges could come:

When asked how quickly the Justice Department will act, Williams responded on MSNBC’s MTP Daily: “I. think quickly. They will get the reference from Congress. Congress will act quickly. The United States Attorney will act in a matter of days. “
It seems like it won’t be long before U.S. Marshals knock on Steve Bannon’s door to arrest him. One would expect the defiance of some of Trump 1/6’s accomplices to wear off once people start being criminally charged and incarcerated.
Not everyone who has been cited has the same level of financial resources as Steve Bannon or Mark Meadows.
Bannon could soon find himself behind bars, as criminal charges appear to be coming quickly.
