The teaser on this story in my aggregator sadly was not the headline: Steve Bannon Surrenders in Manhattan in Alleged Border Wall Donor Dupe

Steve Bannon Surrenders in Manhattan to Face Fresh Charge in Border Wall Case

Former President Donald Trump’s longtime ally Steve Bannon turned himself into authorities Thursday to face fresh charges that he duped donors who gave money to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

They left out the part about how he used the money to buy a yacht.

But this is the part I love the most:

Bannon said Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “has now decided to pursue phony charges against me 60 days before the midterm election,” accusing the Democratic prosecutor of targeting him because Bannon and his radio show are popular among Trump’s Republican supporters.

Bannon said federal prosecutors “did the exact same thing in August 2020 to try to take me out of the election,” referring to his arrest months before Trump’s reelection loss. “This is nothing more than a partisan political weaponization of the criminal justice system.”

It’s amazing how the fascists have hooked onto this get-out-of-jail-free card of 60 days before an election no one can be arrested for anything.

  1. It’s amazing how the fascists have hooked onto this get-out-of-jail-free card of 60 days before an election no one can be arrested for anything so long as you’re a MAGAt.

    His shouts of “persecution” remind me of Griff Tannen screaming “I was framed!” after he and his gang crashed into the courthouse in Back to the Future Part II.

    Also, I’m thinking that money shouldn’t have been the thing that needed laundering, but then, he’s never met a shower he didn’t avoid, so…

    Is this sleazy, dirty, slimy wretch running for any office? Is his name on any ballot or just lots of indictments? Why should it matter how close to an election it is for him to be arrested? The same goes for his BFF, the tffg. Lock them both up.

    Can anyone speculate as to where his room at the Graybar hotel will be? He doesn’t rate a country club but with his connections, he may get one. I was more hoping for San Quentin or something like that.

    He’s pretty slippery, like a hagfish. He will exude a lot of slime, and probably escape again.

    I saw a clip of him doing a perp walk with some woman screaming at him from the crowd. He looked so smug and sleazy. Also said stuff like “they will never shut me up” – although that could have bene a different clip. It’s been a long day and my caffeine is all used up.
