The House committee tasked with investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol is set to hold a vote on Tuesday about whether to refer Steve Bannon, advisor to former President Donald Trump, to the US Department of Justice for criminal charges after he refused to comply with the committee’s subpoena.

Bannon could face jail time and fines. According to NBC News, Bannon’s lawyer had asked for a week-long delay of the vote, but it was denied by the committee comprised of seven Democrats and two Republicans.

The vote comes just after Trump filed a lawsuit on Monday to block the House committee from accessing records related to the attack.
