Steve Bannon’s Prison Time Will Be Harsher Than ‘Club Fed’ Setup, CNN Reports

Former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon will likely do time in a prison that can house violent offenders ― a far cry from a minimum-security “Club Fed” facility, CNN reported Tuesday.

“Not at all what Steve Bannon was wanting here,” reporter Katelyn Polantz told “OutFront” host Erin Burnett. (Watch the video below.)

The far-right “War Room” podcaster has been ordered to report to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, on July 1 while he continues his likely futile fight to avoid serving his four-month sentence for contempt of Congress, according to the network.

“Not at all what Bannon was hoping for, or frankly, seemed to be expecting?” Burnett asked.

“No, not at all what Steve Bannon was wanting here,” Polantz said. “He had expected ― and his lawyers had expected ― that he’s non-violent, he had not had any prior convictions. And so, maybe he would go to a prison camp, very minimal security in the federal system. That’s not what’s happening.”

Polantz described the layout.

“So, he’s behind ‘The Wall,’ is what they call it,” she said. “It’s different than a camp. It has more confines for the inmates that are kept there. Also, violent offenders can be kept in a low-security prison like the one Bannon is going to.”
