Steve Bannon Claims ‘Persecution’

At a glance

  • Conservative political strategist and former Donald Trump campaign adviser Steve Bannon turned himself in to law enforcement on Thursday regarding his alleged role in a money laundering scheme, marking a significant break in New York State Attorney General Leticia James’ inquiry into a fundraising scheme to build a wall on the southern border.
  • “This is irony—on the very day the mayor of this city has a delegation down on the border, they’re persecuting people here,” Bannon shouted on his way into court, referring to New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ recent announcement of a “fact-finding mission” to the border investigating the Texas government’s plans to bus apprehended migrants from the border to New York.
