Bannon update [View all]

If you are like me, you’ve been incredibly frustrated that this criminal was pardoned out of a fraud sentence and the s using appeals to stay out of jail for his contempt of congress sentence of four months. Well, looks like Bannon has a LOT more to worry about than just the contempt sentence. Granted anything he’s convicted of will just go into more potentially years long appeals, but this guys future is BLEAK


But the legal walls are finally closing in on Bannon. That federal, presidential pardon didn’t prevent Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg from charging Bannon under New York state law for those same illegal actions. That trial is set to begin in four months.

And Bannon’s primary financial benefactor, the shadowy Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, is now under indictment for bilking anti-communist dissidents out of one billion dollars. Earlier this month, a superceding indictment alleged that Guo’s business entities, some of which included Bannon as a partner and co-founder, were part of a criminal organization.

And it looks like Trump isn’t the only criminal defendant to stiff his lawyers. As The Daily Beast reported today, Bannon reportedly owes his attorneys nearly half a million dollars, and they are out to recover it.

All this adds up to some pretty bad news for Bannon. So let’s review where things stand with him, and why it might not be long before Bannon is off that podcast and behind bars where he belongs.
