DA SDNY, Mr. Bannon, we have this against you and we're going for 20 years. Nonetheless, we are willing to make a deal. What do you know about... devil hitsfan popcorn2

Let's see if Trump decides to pardon them for stealing from a charity that was supposed to contribute to a Trump sweetheart project. Of course said stealing is a Trump favorite. so who knows?

The question is: Does Trump appreciate a good con, even if he is the victim?

He showed some disapproval of the plan earlier. I don't think him and Bannon are buddies anymore.

But the entire scenario is delicious. Just more and more corruption showing up in everything Trump has ever touched.

This morning when I got to work:

Me to co-worker. There's a spring in my step this morning.
Co-worker: Oh? Why is that?
Me to co-worker: Three words - Steve. Bannon. Arrested.
Co-worker: What? Did that just happen?
(Another co-worker over-hearing the conversation): Steve Bannon? I've heard that name before.
Me to co-worker: Quite the sugar high, isn't it? smile
Co-worker: Indeed. I feel like I just ate a Snickers bar.

Huffington Post has an amazing piece on Bannon et al here:

Build The Wall Grift

It seems like it goes on for pages tying every Trump fan organization to Bannon's scam. Incredible! Looks like we need some RICO prosecutions come February.
