Who are the 9 House Republicans who voted to hold Steve Bannon in contempt?
The House of Representatives voted Thursday to hold former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon for disregard of Congress for ignoring subpoenas from the House committee investigating the January 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol.
Bannon, who served under former President Donald Trump, was ordered last month to produce documents pertinent to events leading up to the uprising and to appear on October 14 for testimony.
He refused to cooperate under the direction of lawyers representing Trump. The special committee voted unanimously on Tuesday to despise Bannon.

The full house voted 229 to 202 votes for all Democrats and most Republicans - with the exception of nine - against. Spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi, D-California, will recommend the disregard report to the Department of Justice, which will determine whether Bannon will be prosecuted.
Who are the members of the GOP House who voted to despise Bannon?
Seven voted for impeachment against Trump
Representative Liz Cheney, R-Wyo .; Representative Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill .; Rep. John Katko, R-N. Y .; Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio; Representatives Fred Upton and Peter Meijer from Michigan; and Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash. voted on Thursday to despise Bannon and also voted for impeachment against Trump earlier this year.
Two others who voted to condemn Bannon in contempt, Reps. Nancy Mace, R-S.C. and Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., did not vote for impeachment against the former president.
Rep. Greg Pence, R-Ind., The brother of former Vice President Mike Pence, who was specifically targeted by rioters on Jan. 6, did not vote on Thursday.
Members can expect political consequences for their vote
Some who voted to despise Bannon will not run for re-election in 2022.
Gonzalez announced earlier this month that he would not run for re-election next fall. Katko created the opportunity to run for governor in New York. And it is unclear whether Upton, who has sat in Congress since 1986, will run again.
Others, like Cheney and Kinzinger - both members of the bipartisan special committee of January 6 - have announced that they will run for re-election next year against strong opposition. Herrera Beutler and Meijer also hope to keep their seats in Congress.
