Former Donald Trump Advisor Steve Bannon Arrested

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been arrested.

The 66-year-old has been “charged with defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors through their campaign ‘We Build the Wall,’” CNBC reports. Investigators are alleging he and his alleged co-conspirators defrauded donors and raised “more than $25 million to build a wall along the southern border of the United States.”

The organization was apparently supposed to assist in building a wall on the southern border of America and the northern border of Mexico. Bannon and his alleged accomplices “collectively received hundreds of thousands of dollars in donor funds from ‘We Build the Wall,’ which they each used in a manner inconsistent with the organization’s public representations.”

Bannon served in the first seven months of Donald Trump‘s presidential term. He was eventually fired, which caused a lot of celeb reactions.
