The House's Steve Bannon referral arrived at the US Attorney’s office today at 5:30 p.m. ET, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office.
Earlier today, the House voted to approve the Jan. 6 committee's report recommending Bannon, an ally of former President Donald Trump, be held for criminal contempt of Congress after he defied a subpoena to appear before the panel.
Members of the committee have said the panel believes Bannon has significant knowledge of the planning around the attack.
Now, the Justice Department will decide whether to bring charges that could result in jail time or fines.
