Federal prosecutors have accused Steve Bannon, former adviser to President Donald Trump, and three others of misleading donors to the “We Build the Wall” campaign, but some who gave money to the cause say they’re not victims and would gladly donate again.
Bannon, U.S. Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, and two others were arrested Thursday on charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Each charge carries a maximum of 20 years in prison.
Bannon pleaded not guilty in Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday, the Associated Press reported. Attorneys for Kolfage were not listed in court filings.
