Sweet satisfaction and oh the irony, especially with USPS involved in the investigation.
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was arrested Thursday after being charged with defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors through his “We Build the Wall” fundraising campaign.
Bannon and three associates were indicted in a federal investigation in the Southern District of New York. Prosecutors allege the four defrauded donors by raising “more than $25 million to build a wall along the southern border of the United States,” but some of that money was used for personal gain.
The United States Postal Inspection Service assisted in the investigation.
Others in the indictment are Timothy Shea, a 49-year-old from Colorado accused of owning a shell company, Brian Kolfage, a disabled Iraq war veteran, and Andrew Badolato, who according to his own website was a contributor to Breitbart News, the conservative publication Bannon used to run.
The campaign was intended to raise money to help President Donald Trump fulfill a campaign promise to build a border wall. Instead, prosecutors allege that Bannon and his team profited off the arrangement.August 20, 2020 at 1:34 pm #47511

The sad part is this is barely a blip in the news cycle. Nobody is paying attention. Steve Bannon? Who?
Trump will say that. “Who? I hardly know the man”. And his base will believe it.August 20, 2020 at 6:44 pm #47520bookemdonoParticipant
Exactly! If anyone says the mainstream media is liberal the amount of coverage this us getting and the lack of coverage of the senate intel committee report are exhibit A and B that is flat wrong.August 20, 2020 at 7:03 pm #47522AndrewParticipant

Steve Bannon was permanently banned from Twitter, and his legal defense team is abandoning him.
The criminal defense lawyers for ex-top Trump advisor Steve Bannon filed court papers saying they would seek to withdraw from the case, a day after Bannon discussed having FBI Director Christopher Wray and infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci beheaded.November 6, 2020 at 8:03 pm #48744radiogeekParticipant
