Facing Indictment, Steve Bannon Set to Turn Himself in to New York Prosecutors

Sep 7, 2022 | Political News

Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon is set to surrender himself to New York prosecutors on Thursday to face a new criminal indictment, according to a Washington Post report.

Although the details of the criminal indictment against Bannon are still sealed, the charges reportedly stem from Bannon’s involvement in “We Build the Wall,” an online fundraising effort that purported to raise money to finish the construction of the southern border wall.

Bannon faced federal charges stemming from his involvement in that fundraising effort, and he pleaded not guilty in August 2020 but received a pardon from former President Donald Trump in the last days of his presidency.

Bannon blasted the Manhattan District Attorney for pursuing “phony charges” against him just two months before the midterm elections in a statement released Tuesday evening.
