Arrest: On August 20, 2020, Steve Bannon was arrested on a 150-foot yacht off the coast of Connecticut by US Postal Inspectors. Bannon's arrest was connected to a charity called "We Build the Wall". Banon and several alleged co-conspirators were arrested for allegedly siphoning money from the charity to use on personal expenses and purchases. The yacht Bannon was arrested on is owned by a Chinese billionaire named Guo Wengui who is one of China's most-wanted fugitives. Coincidentally, in the same week of his arrest, several banks froze accounts connected to fundraising efforts by a company called GTV Media Group. Bannon and Wengui are allegedly the two key executives behind GTV which raised $300 million in a private offering in spring 2020.
