Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon arrested on charges of defrauding donors in fundraising scheme

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been arrested after being charged with defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors. 

Bannon and three associates were indicted in a federal investigation in the Southern District of New York. Prosecutors allege the four defrauded donors by raising “more than $25 million to build a wall along the southern border of the United States,” but some of that money was used for personal gain. 

The United States Postal Inspection Service assisted in the investigation.
