Steve Bannon Indicted For Money Laundering, Conspiracy and Fraud

(CNN) – Former Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon was indicted on NY State charges of money laundering, conspiracy and fraud related to an alleged online scheme to raise money for the construction of a wall along the southern US border, according to an indictment obtained by CNN.

Bannon surrendered Thursday morning to authorities and is expected to plead not guilty Thursday when arraigned later Thursday, his attorney Robert Costello told CNN.

The state charges are based on the same conduct Bannon was charged with by federal prosecutors in 2020 that alleged he and three others had defrauded donors in the border wall effort, which raised more than $25 million.

Bannon is scheduled to be sentenced next month for his conviction of contempt of Congress.
