    (June 7, 2022): “A federal judge declared a mistrial Tuesday in the criminal case against a Colorado businessman accused of laundering money from a bogus charity that milked about $25 million from private donors who thought they were funding the construction of former President Donald Trump’s border wall.” https://www.courthousenews.com/we-build-the-wall-fraud-case-ends-in-mistrial-jurors-hopelessly-deadlocked/
    “…From the beginning, We Build the Wall promised that 100% of funds raised would go toward construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. It quickly raised some $25 million in private donations on GoFundMe but built a mere 3 miles of fencing. The rest, according to charging papers, lined its founder’s pockets. Prosecutors said Bannon and Kolfage alone used more than $1 million in We Build the Wall donations to pay for a boat, a 2018 Land Rover Range Rover, a golf cart, jewelry, cosmetic surgery and other assets.
    Kolfage and Badolato pleaded guilty in April 2022. Bannon, who was arrested off the eastern coast of Connecticut on a 150-foot yacht owned by Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, meanwhile would circumvent liability in the case when Trump pardoned him on his last day in office in January 2021.”
