Steve Bannon, arrested on Thursday for allegedly trying to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, seemed like the thing snarky Twitter users wanted.

Former President Donald Trump’s longtime ally Steve Bannon pleaded not guilty Thursday to duping donors who gave money for a wall on the southern border – a state-level version of a federal case pardoned by the president last year.

In a New York City courtroom, Bannon was arraigned on money laundering, conspiracy, and fraud related to the We Build the Wall crowd-funding campaign. But he had to do a “perp walk” through a media gauntlet on his way to the Manhattan court.


“It’s all nonsense. They will never shut me up,” Bannon said as he left court.

While Bannon claimed that all donations would go toward building the wall, prosecutors say he transferred hundreds of thousands of dollars to third-party entities and funneled them to two other people.

They weren’t named in the indictment, but their details match those of Brian Kolfage and Andrew Badolato, who pleaded guilty to federal charges in April.
