Steve Bannon faces a criminal charge in NYC

According to those with knowledge of the situation, Steve Bannon is anticipated to turn himself in on Thursday to face charges brought by the state of New York in connection with his fundraising campaign to construct a wall along the southern US border.

The federal indictment against Bannon from 2020 constituted the basis for the state accusations that have been returned in an indictment. As he was about to leave office, then-President Donald Trump pardoned Bannon of the federal fraud charges associated with the alleged conspiracy. State inquiries are not covered by presidential pardons.


Bannon is anticipated to enter a not guilty plea when he is formally charged, according to Robert Costello, the former Trump aide's attorney.
