BREAKING: Bannon, 4 Others Indicted for Illegally Funneling Money from “We Build the Wall” Crowdfunding Campaign

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and multiple “We Build The Wall” organizers have been arrested and charged with defrauding donors.


Per The Hill, Bannon along with Brian Kolfage, Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea allegedly defrauded donors of the online crowdfunding campaign known as We Build the Wall, which raised more than $25 million.

The four defendants are expected to appear in court Thursday afternoon.

Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a statement “As alleged, the defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors, capitalizing on their interest in funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars, under the false pretense that all of that money would be spent on construction.”
