Bannon, ’We Build The Wall’ organizers arrested, charged with defrauding donors

The DOJ indicted Steve Bannon, a former adviser to President Donald Trump and chair of Trump’s 2016 campaign, among four suspects in connection with an online fundraising campaign that allegedly defrauded investors via the campaign, ’We Build the Wall,’ which is said to have raised over $25mn. The DOJ arrested and indicted Brian Kolfage, who founded the campaign, Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea.

So they collected about 25 million, and only took 1 million of that for themselves? If they hadn't claimed that "100% of the funds will go to building the wall" nobody would have a problem with this. As it is, they did defraud the public and should be punished for those false statements.
