Multiple sources claim that Steve Bannon will turn himself in as he faces New York state indictment

New York, New York – New York City Two sources close to Steve Bannon confirmed the news to CBS News late Tuesday night that he will bring himself in to face the state charges in New York for which he has been indicted. Bannon was one of the advisers who worked for former President Donald Trump.

It was not immediately obvious what the charges would entail in terms of specifics. Tuesday evening, the District Attorney’s Office for the City of New York declined to comment.

The Washington Post was the first to break the story of Bannon’s impending indictment, and the paper also reported that Bannon will surrender himself to authorities on Thursday.

“Just days after being swatted three different times by deranged thugs from New York City inspired by the Biden Administration to assassinate me by police, the Soros-backed DA has now decided to pursue phony charges against me 60 days before the midterm election because WarRoom is the major source of the MAGA grassroots movement,” Bannon said in a statement. “The MAGA grassroots movement has been inspired by the Biden Administration to assassinate me by police

After ignoring a subpoena to testify in front of a House committee investigating the attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, Bannon was found guilty of contempt of Congress in July. The allegations against him stemmed from his refusal to comply with the subpoena. He might be sentenced to a maximum of two years in prison, and the date set for his sentencing is October 21.

In August of 2020, Bannon was charged with allegedly cheating contributors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars through a fundraising drive to build a wall along the southern border. This campaign was dubbed as the “We build the wall” campaign. Bannon was indicted for these allegations.

In a statement released on Tuesday night, Bannon said that the Southern District of New York had attempted “the very same thing in August 2020 to try to pull me out of the race.”

On January 20, 2021, just a few short hours before leaving office, President Trump granted Bannon a pardon.
