Stephen Bannon, a former adviser to President trump, who was arrested on suspicion of fraud in donations raised for the southern border wall, said he was “a victim of political struggle.”. According to Agence France Presse on August 22, Bannon was released on $5 million bail after he refused to plead guilty at a hearing on the evening of 20. Later, in his podcast “Bannon’s war room,” he said he wanted to make a long-term plan for this. “I’ll keep fighting for it!” He said. Banon further said that the charges against him were made because some people wanted to prevent people from talking about “we build the wall” and to intimidate those who had Trump’s support for the construction of the U.S. – Mexico border wall. According to previous media reports, Bannon was accused of fraud in the “we come to build the wall” fund-raising project on August 20, local time. Prosecutors said Bannon and others misappropriated more than $25 million raised by the project for private use instead of building a wall along the U.S. – Mexico border, as claimed by the organizers. As Bannon was once an important ally of trump, this incident has become particularly sensitive in the run-up to the US election. However, after the news of Bannon’s arrest was released, trump immediately said that he had “no knowledge” about the project and said that he had not dealt with Bannon for a long time. According to experts previously interviewed by surging news (), it is not good news for the Republican camp if more trump related personnel are involved in the incident. However, the final disadvantage and who can get more points depends on the follow-up development. Russian satellite news agency also pointed out that since this year, the new crown epidemic, protests and economic problems have occurred one after another, and the American public may have fallen into “scandal fatigue” and may not have much reaction to the arrest of Bannon.
