With pals like wealthy Chinese elite globalist Guo Wengui, Steve Bannon can comfortably afford to operate in defense of American ideals – and party chill on yachts!
With his ride-along on the We Build the Wall debacle, Bannon also managed to gather sketchy pals like fellow board members Kris Kobach (the former Kansas secretary of state), Erik Prince (the founder of mercenary retail giants Blackwater and brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos), Comic Cowboy David A. Clarke, Jr. and the grotesquely silly former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling.
Aside from his chumming up to Guo, Bannon and three other men were collected and indicted for fleecing Trump Goobers out of millions they donated to the We Build the Wall campaign, a private effort to construct a barrier along the southern U.S. border.
Prosecutors say the Goober-Fleecing Committee routed the funds through shell companies and a nonprofit to line their grubby pockets.
Of course Trump then pardoned Bannon for his upstanding work as “an important leader in the conservative movement…known for his political acumen.”
Fortunately for anyone who gives two shits about the rule of law, that pardon applied only to alleged federal crimes and not state charges.
But rest assured that, as it seems various laws against grifting no longer apply to Conservative proponents of free speech and gullible markets, Bannon will find his liberty unhindered for the near term.
