"The state charges, which have been returned in an indictment, are based on the same conduct Bannon was charged with by federal prosecutors in 2020.

Then-President Donald Trump pardoned Bannon on the federal fraud charges related to the alleged scheme as he was leaving office. Presidential pardons do not apply to state investigations.

The Manhattan district attorney's office opened an investigation into Bannon and the crowd-fundraising effort called "We Build The Wall" after the pardon.

As CNN previously reported, federal prosecutors with the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York had charged Bannon and three others, alleging they had defrauded donors in the border wall effort, which raised more than $25 million."

And here I thought we'd sealed the deal for Steve to guest edit the Vogue "Fashion: An Alternative" edition. Ah, well, tomorrow's another day.

""They are coming after all of us, not only President Trump and myself. I am never going to stop fighting," Bannon vowed. "In fact, I have not yet begun to fight. They will have to kill me first."

All these fools deserve to die in prison.

I doubt if he even learns a single lesson in prison. He'll just come out angry and more determined than ever to beat the system. If he dies in prison, it will only be because his crimes will become worse and the sentences become longer.

I hope they hose him down before they let him indoors. I can tell he smells from here.

I sure hope they deem him a flight risk and keep him locked up, after a dip in a vat of Lysol, of course.

I'm surprised they allowed him to turn himself in. Isn't the normal MO a pre-Dawn raid at home with CNN on hand to film it or arrest and shackle in a very public place when it comes to those within Trump's circle?

Put him in jail before somebody gets to him.
