Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon has been arrested and indicted by the Manhattan US attorney over charges of defrauding people in an online fundraising scheme.

The arrest is tied to the “We Build The Wall” online fundraising scheme which invited Americans to donate to a campaign to build the wall with private funds.

Notably, this is a separate issue from the FBI investigation into a media venture involving Bannon, an exiled Chinese businessman, and the son of Morgan Stanley’s co-founder.

The arrest comes just hours before Joe Biden is set to accept the Democratic nomination.

Suburban Americans are showing up to beat down the Antifa myth.
