Federal prosecutors claimed that Bannon defrauded donors who gave with the hope of supporting the construction of a wall between the US and Mexico, which was at the centre of Trump's 2016 campaign, back in 2020.

Prosecutors claimed that despite millions of dollars pouring in, Bannon and the three men instead kept the cash for themselves.

According to Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, "it's a criminal to earn a profit by misrepresenting to donors, and in New York, you will be held accountable," adding that Bannon and the other three misled thousands of individuals nationwide.

As his administration came to an end, Trump granted Bannon a pardon. But as Insider's Tom Porter points out, presidential pardons only apply to federal offences.

So state prosecutors are free to look into the case and bring their own charges if they so want.
