(Republican Insider) – Host of the popular podcast War Room, Steve Bannon, has turned himself in to authorities and pleaded not guilty to charges of money laundering and conspiracy.
On Thursday, the former Trump strategist voluntarily surrendered himself to New York law enforcement and stands accused of laundering contributions to a fundraiser for a wall to be built on the southern US border.
According to Fox News, Bannon has been charged with six counts of money laundering in the second degree, scheme to defraud in the first degree, and conspiracy in the fourth and fifth degrees.
After he voluntarily surrendered, law enforcement decided to perp-walk Bannon through the halls of a Manhattan courthouse anyway. He took advantage of the moment and issued a warning to conservatives.
“For every conservative in America, this is what happens in the last days of a dying regime. They will never shut me up. They’ll have to kill me first,” Bannon said as he was paraded by members of the media.

Bannon condemned the charges against him in a statement.
“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 [George] Soros-backed DA has now decided to pursue phony charges against me 60 days before the midterm election because War Room is the major source of the MAGA grassroots movement,” he said.
“This is nothing more than a partisan political weaponization of the criminal justice system,” Bannon added.
“They are coming after all of us, not only President Trump and myself. I am never going to stop fighting. In fact, I have not yet begun to fight. They will have to kill me first.”
We all know this is political persecution. The left doesn’t even try to be subtle about it. Bannon is far from the first or only Trump associate to be dragged into court on drummed up charges.
Meanwhile, the Biden crime family has yet to see the inside of a courtroom. It’s all a charade.
According to the indictment against Bannon, the Southern District of New York claims that he and an unnamed co-conspirator used the “We Build the Wall” fundraiser to funnel money through “various third party entities” to the CEO of the organization, despite the CEO publicly promising that he would not be compensated.
“We Build the Wall” brought in over $15 million.
Bannon was released after his court appearance on no cash bail and was ordered to surrender his passport, Fox News reports.
The Deep State has been out to get Bannon for years now and he’s not alone. During an appearance on “The Charlie Kirk Show” Friday, Bannon said there were “thirty-five FBI raids yesterday” on prominent Trump supporters.
“The jackbooted Gestapo has got to show up at their door and make a big display of this,” he said.

He also asserted that according to the left-leaning The Washington Post, there is a grand jury coming together regarding the Capitol incursion.
The political persecution is not going to stop until the regime has been ousted from power. Unfortunately, as we’ve come to learn over the last several months, the roots of this corrupt enterprise run very, very deep.
