Steve Bannon, the anti-neocon grifter who successfully infiltrated the Trump administration before being exposed, has been indicted on federal charges for allegedly defrauding American patriots who thought they were donating money to fund construction of President Donald Trump's beautiful border wall.

The indictment was announced two weeks after the U.S. State Department tapped Elliott Abrams, an experienced pro-freedom diplomat, to run the department's Iran policy—a move that signaled a concerted effort to adopt a "Full Neoconservatism" philosophy for the first time in history.

Bannon is alleged to have received more than $1 million via an online crowdfunding campaign that he advertised as raising money to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border. Federal prosecutors in New York allege that Bannon and his associates, including Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, used shell companies and nonprofit entities in an attempt to conceal the grift.

Bannon, sometimes referred to as "Sloppy Steve," was previously charged with misdemeanor domestic violence following a January 1996 incident involving his ex-wife.
