Steve Bannon, former senior adviser to President Donald Trump, was pulled from a mega yacht off the Connecticut coast early Thursday and charged in what federal prosecutors said was a scheme to embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars from a fundraising campaign for one of Trump’s top projects: construction of a wall along the border with Mexico.
In the meantime, The Lady May — owned by exiled Chinese billionaire and Bannon business associate Guo Wengui — had become something of a mystery among the marinas and beach houses of Westbrook, after it dropped anchor off the town beach — one vacationer said — Sunday night. Thursday afternoon, beach goers were packing binoculars with their floats and lounge chairs for a better view.Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon was cruising the Connecticut coast on mega yacht when federal agents charged him Thursday morning with embezzling border wall money – Hartford Courant
Steve helped Trump get elected. But once there, Trump fired him. Then Bannon published a book, denigrating Trump. Now Bannon is arrested.
Kind of sounds like a mob boss punishing someone who is not ‘loyal’ enough, wouldn’t you agree?
