    he's not in europe....he's in police custody.

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been arrested after being charged with defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors through their campaign “We Build the Wall.”


    Bannon, along with three of his associates were indicted by investigators at the U.S. Southern District of New York on Thursday. They allege that the group of conservative leaders defrauded donors and that led to raising “more than $25 million to build a wall along the southern border of the United States,” according to the press release.


    The United States Postal Inspection Service assisted in the investigation.


    The others mentioned in the indictment are Timothy Shea, who in May was announced as the Acting Administrator of Drug Enforcement Administration, Brian Kolfage, a Iraq war veteran, and Andrew Badolato.

    Wondering how many Trump associates need to be charged / go to jail before his supporters start seeing the common denominator. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    You only need to see smoke from one house before calling the fire department...

    I hate Bannon , trump and this whole crew of fuckwits.

    But this is clearly a banana republic style political arrest. Bannon probably didn't fill out some paperwork properly or bent some expense rule.

    It's a political arrest just like Manafort, Stone and Flynn. Their crime ? Supporting the campaign of an unsanctioned candidate for president.

    It just shows that the USA is no better than any other corrupt shit hole. It's a faux democracy. The people's Democratic republic of America

    Rationalizations are absolutely necessary for maintaining the illusion of integrity, when integrite has gone out the door.

    Yeah this doesn't sound shady at all does it? Clearly just political.



    Prosecutors alleged that Bannon and Kolfage along with two others — Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea — routed payments from the crowdfunding campaign through the nonprofit and another shell company, disguising them with fake invoices to help keep their personal pay secret.

    All four were arrested Thursday and charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. They were expected to make court appearances later in the day.

    This Is the Very Expensive Yacht Steve Bannon Got Arrested On

    It reportedly belongs to a Chinese fugitive.



    On Thursday morning, federal agents arrested Steve Bannon off the coast of Connecticut on a 150-foot yacht named “Lady May". He was with Miles Kwok.


    Kwok fled to the United States in 2014, in anticipation of corruption charges. After observing a period of initial silence, he plunged himself into the international spotlight by making a torrent of wild, salacious corruption allegations against senior Chinese Communist Party leaders

    Another HK$8.7 billion (US$1.1 billion) of assets of fugitive mainland China tycoon Guo Wengui has been frozen by a Hong Kong court, local media reported on Tuesday, citing court documents.

    The report by online news outlet HK01 came as Guo, also known as Miles Kwok, was to hold a press conference in New York on Tuesday, with an introduction by former US presidential adviser Steve Bannon.

    The latest development follows the revelation from a separate court case in August that Hong Kong police are investigating Guo over alleged conspiracy to launder more than HK$32 billion.

    Political in the sense that Trump's political associates keep committing treason and other crimes.
