Steve Bannon, a close ally of former president Donald Trump, has asked the Supreme Court to delay his four-month prison sentence while he appeals against his conviction for contempt of Congress.

Bannon defied a congressional subpoena related to the investigation of the January 6 riot in Washington.

Despite a recent denial of his appeal by a federal appeals court, Bannon hopes the Supreme Court will grant him a delay.

He argues that he poses no flight risk or danger to others if his prison term is postponed.
