Steve Bannon on Sept. 8 surrendered to authorities in New York over fresh charges related to his involvement with a scheme to build border barriers on private land.

Bannon, an ex-adviser to former President Donald Trump, entered the office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg around 9:30 a.m.

An indictment filed in New York Supreme Court says Bannon laundered money and committed a conspiracy to defraud donors through “We Build the Wall,” which saw a group raise funds they said would go towards building barriers along the U.S.–Mexico border.

Bannon and others “solicited donations and raised money from donors throughout the United States, including several hundred from New York County, based on the false representation that none of the money donated to WeBuildTheWall, Inc. would be used to pay Unindicted Co-Conspirator 1’s salary,” the document states.
