NY AG Orders Steve Bannon To Get Perp-Walked


Just days after Biden declared that MAGA Republicans are dangerous to democracy, New York’s AG has ordered Trump ally Steve Bannon to be perp-walked in front of the media.

Earlier in the day, Bannon turned himself into New York authorities and was later charged with money laundering, fraud, and conspiracy.

New York’s district attorneys are alleging that he deceived donors and kept proceeds from his “Build the Wall” fundraiser.

While Bannon was being perp-walked by New York PD, Bannon addressed the media and stated “They will never shut me up, they’ll have to kill me first.”

Fox News added more details:

Former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon pleaded not guilty Thursday to New York charges related to the “We Build the Wall” fundraiser.

Bannon turned himself in to New York authorities and was charged with six counts, including money laundering in the second degree, scheme to defraud in the first degree, and conspiracy in the fourth and fifth degrees. The indictment alleges that Bannon used WeBuildTheWall, Inc. to draw contributions from a crowdfunding website, which were then funneled through “various third party entities,” with part of the money going to the CEO of WeBuildTheWall despite that organization and the CEO making repeated statements that he would not be compensated.

The indictment does not name anyone else, identifying the CEO as “Unindicted Co-Conspirator 1.” A federal indictment filed in 2020 listed WeBuildTheWall founder Brian Kolfage as a co-defendant, alleging that he and Bannon told the public that Kolfage would “not take a penny” in compensation from the organization, only to then receive money through a third party entity. Kolfage pleaded guilty in the federal case to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

The Post Millenial had these details to add:

Just hours after former Trump advisor Steve Bannon turned himself in to New York authorities, law enforcement officers were seen parading Bannon on a “perp-walk” in front of a crowd of reporters.

With at least seven people escorting Bannon into the courtroom as cameras flashed, Bannon stated that “for every conservative in America, this is what happened in the last stage of a dying regime.”

According to Fox News, Bannon was charged with six counts that include money laundering in the second degree, scheme to defraud in the first degree, and conspiracy in the fourth and fifth degrees.
