Report: Trump considering pardon for former confidant Steve Bannon

As President Donald Trump enters his final days in his single-term presidency, the nation — and the world — waits to see what final moves he might make as he leaves office.

According to The Blaze, Trump is potentially considering a pardon for his former inner-circle confidant, Steve Bannon, who found himself in legal trouble after allegedly misusing funds from a private, “We Build The Wall” campaign in which he and several others solicited donations to help crowdsource funds to build a section of wall on the southern U.S. border.ย 

Bannon — along with three others involved in the scheme — was arrested last August after raising more than $25 million for the effort, which prosecutors say acted as somewhat of a personal bank account for those involved.

He was charged by a federal grand jury in New York with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering, a charge to which he pleaded not guilty.

As Politico reported on Thursday, those familiar with the situation suggested that the president might include Bannon as part of a package of other potentially controversial pardons in the days before he departs the White House for good.

The news comes as reports emerged over the past few months that Trump was once again talking with Bannon with concern to how best to overturn the results of the 2020 election, years after firing the former Breitbart chief. At the time of the firing, Trump ripped Bannon publicly, claiming that he had “lost his mind.”

The president has already issued a number of pardons in the weeks after taking a loss in the November election. Some of those pardons included one for Roger Stone, former lawmakers and a handful of people who were convicted as a result of the 2016 investigation led by Robert Mueller concerning the Russia probe.

Aside from potentially offering Bannon a pardon, Trump is also reportedly considering issuing preemptive pardons for several members of his family and some of his closest associates, like Rudy Giuliani. There has also been recent speculation that he’s considering a pardon for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

I hope Trump knows how much the American people love him! And his family!!!! Blessings and protection for them as well as all of us๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

        1. Yes! All of the above, especially Julian Assange. Thank you Donald J. Trump. Today you are still the President. After that, you are “still the man”.

    1. Totally agree! Biden is a crock, Pelosi is abusing the law and getting richer. Obama ends up with millions so did Clinton. Majority of democrats should have been arrested, instead they are praised by the corrupt media.
      President Trump is a true leader who loves America, he is a winner.

    2. Amen Thee GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.

      THANK YOU FOR MAKING AMERICA
      GREAT AGAIN.

    3. Amen Thee GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.

      THANK YOU FOR MAKING AMERICA
      GREAT AGAIN .

    4. I agree totally with you. I feel so bad for him, he knows, just like millions know that he did not loose that election. There are so many in the congress/senate that I believe belong to the Deep State. One day they will all pay for what they did. Biden/Harris illegitimate P/VP.

    5. President Trump SHOULD PARDON HIMSELF for being loved by his supporters and for being envied and hated by the socialist/communists.

    6. You know, it is about time we the American people take back our country!
      I’m tired of hearing and seeing Democrats doing wrong and nothing is done to punish them!
      I say Pelosi / Schumer and the rest of the squad be “punished” big time!!!

      1. I agree with you Ken….we the AMERICAN people NEED to take our country back. We need to get biden/harris/pelosi/schumer/schief/and nadler out of our country. biden is a crazy old fool and then coon in the vp spot needs to go.

    7. Trump is a corrupt tyrant that incited a insurrection to overthrow the government of the United States of America love isnโ€™t what patriotic Americans should feel about this treasonous traitor discussed and loathing would be the best feelings

      1. biden is the one that is corrupt/a pedophile/a liar and harris is no better. They both need to be in jail and tried for treason. Anyone that supports biden/harris is ant-American and needs to be deported.

      2. You are a POS. IF you would actually read and study videos and something besides MSM, you would know who the bad guys are. But you prefer to set and let the demorats tell you what they want you to know. Have a great life under socialism.

    8. Thatโ€™s beautiful the Americans are praying for President Trump and beautiful First Lady Melania and praying for the family We love you and your family๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  2. Correction: President Trump’s win was stolen by the radical left! President Trump won n now the true illegitimate president will be sworn in on Wed. Sad to know the only way the radical left can get what they want is to cheat, steal n totally corrupt!!!

    1. Omg…..yes Dottie. Iโ€™m with ya on that. I still feel that God did not raise up America just to allow it to be degraded and lost. I believe God still has something coming that will keep America as that shinning light on the Hill. It will be an interesting thing to watch in the coming few weeks and months.

    2. All of what you have just said. Dottie has all been disproven. Do you need someone to get a coloring book and a crayon and draw you a picture because obviously you canโ€™t read or understand the English language

  3. There is an officer on a sub that was taking pictures to take home to his family to show them where he works and was accused of โ€œtreason, I believeโ€
    And was court martialed. I pray he could have a pardon.

  4. I would like to see President Trump pardon himself, all members of his family, Rudy,& all others, that worked closely with him, & are now in the lefts crosshairs. We know, that President Trump was elected as our President, in 2020, & so does Our Father in Heaven, & he has a plan, all we need to do, is pray, believe, & wait, for all that has been in the dark, to be brought into the light. God Bless America, & all Americans.

    1. agree, Mr Trump must pardon himself for being who he is, I guess and for being hated by the democrat/socialists which he can’t help and they envy him too ! so forgive himself for this too!

      1. biden and his whole family needs to go to prison along with all the democrats in the house and senate. you really do not know what you are talking about…so leave this country and make it a better place for the rest of us.

    2. If the. U. S Is going to pardon criminals like trump and his administration why arrest anyone We can not let trumps crimes be forgotten. He must be held responsible or every future president can commit the same crimes without fear of the consequences.

      1. Perhaps you would like to move to a Communist country where you will feel at home with your disgusting views.

        1. I didnโ€™t try to destroy democracy or overthrow the government of the United States your fearless leader did and you people enable him. You all are just as guilty of treason as he is

  5. Just to bang back All the dems , the CROOKED F.B.I. , The CROOKED DOJ , the CROOKED C.I.A , Mueller , Comey , Brennon etc.etc.etc. ,,,, he should pardon EVERYONE and ANYONE that the Government sucked into the PROVEN FAKE Russia hoax !!!!

      1. You are so determined to make Trump the bad guy…how come….you have some proof that no one else has? He will bounce back from all this hate and hopefully, with all our prayers and the help of God he will still do all he can do as a private citizen to keep America safe from all the dogs biting at our heels to just walk in and take over this wonderful country. He is too smart for them all….he will survive and so will our country…God Bless Trump and God Bless America….always…..

  6. well said Monica , totally agree. I guess the almighty dollar can buy just about anything. like fraud, Treason, lies that were told. We have lost America. Trump was truly all about Making America better, Biden has started his destruction already and will have all the $$$ behind him. I wonder how he can sleep at night knowing he was a loser.

    1. His list for 100 days is a disaster! It’s totally scary! He wants to get back into bed with China and Iran and print more and more money. Rejoining the Paris Climate Accord should not even happen as it is just a return towards the 1 world order that we do not need and 99% of the climate hoax belongs to Al Gore who got rich off it. Nothing will change things as long as China, India, and other countries continue to pollute like they do. The US is not a major polluter and even the reductions we have made, don’t count when others ignore the need. Real scientists dispute all the publicized garbage by “scientists” that have been paid to shame us. People trained by the military in climate and weather, totally disagree with the garbage too. Printing more money to give relief when it should have been given long before instead of sending money to Pakistan to study gender…biologically, there are only 2 sexes… so what is there to study, and giving money to countries that hate us is just plain STUPID. To destroy all that President Trump, a President for and with the people, fought so hard to give us is despicable! My stomach churns just thinking about what is coming!

  7. Trump should pardon them all, including Julian Assage. Hell, Assange didn’t do anything as bad as the Clintons, FBI. CIA or any of Obamas buddies. Probably did some good, opened the eyes of a lot of sleeping americans. Probably can help putting the guilty in prison, that’s the real reason the left wants him isolated.

  8. I say keep the faith . Why are all the trips in ??? They are still under President Trump . I think itโ€™s all gonna come out . Hopefully there will a lot of arrest and Trump will still be our man to lead OUR GREAT COUNTRY . Please donโ€™t give up on him , he hasnโ€™t given up on us . Keep praying you never know . ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป. Biden / the witch will NEVER BE THE REAL PRESIDENT BC HE LOST BY A LANDSLIDE . Chesters , corruption makes me sick . But my bday is the 23 will be the best present ever if he has a plan ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

    1. In 4 YEARS.
      If I have not died from this crap, I WILL either vote for, or write in Donald J. Trump.
      What we ALL need to do NOW is focus on voting out the following imbeciles:
      Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney (Wyo), John Katzo (NY), Adam Kinzinger (Ill), Fred Upton (Mich), Jaime Herrera Beuller (Wash), Anthony Gonzalez (Oh), Tom Rice (SC), David Valdeo (Calif), Peter Meijer (Mich), and not forgetting Kelly Leoffler.

  9. We wish president Trump would pardon Julian Assange who is innocent. He only shows to regular people corruption of ruling class in whole world.

  10. Democrats cheat they always have. Obama admitted he cheated Romney and Romney doesnโ€™t get it. We need 4 more years of Yrump to clean the filth out

    1. Sure, Laura.. We do need four more years of President Trump, but looks like the crooks have finagled a way to get their way, and do it so it looks legal. For one thing, the Media is so far gone on supporting the liberal left, that a lot of normal, honest, fair-minded , voters hearing nothing BUT what the media spews out.. that they soak it up, with some degree of belief in what the MEDIA is telling them day-after-day. That’s natural to happen, and it does. The outright LIES that the media spreads are so outlandish so wrong, so misleading, so beautifully worded and contrived that they are creating a new art form. It’s incredible!

  11. What’s the difference. B Foundation was established to raise money for Cancer research, etc. During it’s brief life (2+yrs) the B. Foundation, a 501C(3) tax exempt corporation, raised approximately $4.3 million during it’s brief life; they paid out $3,0 million for wages to various officers; $800,000 was paid for meetings, travel, etc. and the balance, who knows! The amount they paid for cancer research, etc. was $.00. Wow, what a sham. No one, to my knowledge, has been held accountable for the SHAM! Talk about a double standard!

  12. I am Trying to Become Prepared for the Biden/Harris Nightmare. In a Very Short Time After the Illegitimate Inauguration Our 401 Kโ€™s, Purses and Billfolds Will be Ravaged. My Only Consolation is for me to Attempt to Not Support ANY Pro Biden/Harris Liberal Agendas: Institutions, Political Persons, Businesses, Sporting Venues, and the List Goes On…….

  13. Gonna be a very bumpy ride, and China will probably get tired really quick, and just come on in.
    Or one of the other countries like Russia, or Iran will stick a fork in us.

  14. Trump IS the BEST President this country has ever had !!!! Yes the left stole this election . I think the 74 million should hire a lawyer like Ted Cruz or Rudy or Sydney Powel or all of them together ! Why should we bow down when they steal and cheat to get what they want! We need to continue to fight!

    1. Ellen Lomnicky, this is precisely what we need to do. The numbers IN SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP now hover near or beyond 100 MILLION VOTERS
      WE COULD HAVE QUITE A LAWSUIT WITH THE BEST LAWYERS!!
      HE WON IN A HUGE LANDSLIDE AND WE KNOW THIS!

    2. Ellen get a real life. Trump will go down in history as a total failure and the absolute WORST president this country ever had and hopefully will never have again

        1. Hey mike try defending your leader trump with proof to show that he didnโ€™t do the things he has been said to have done. Instead of making the same statement over and over.about someone leaving the country. Oh by the way did you hear that trump has been said to be a flight risk and may escape to another country for fear of being indicted for his numerous crimes

      1. You are blinded by your hate for a man you really don’t know anything about. He has been on a mission to clean out the deep state in our government of which there are so many. They are vile and corrupt and he has all the goods on them. This term of his presidency was to show them for what they are. Stay tuned and remember the President’s words,”The Best is yet to come.”

        1. Trump campaigned on cleaning out the swamp and ended up making it deeper and wider. Real American patriots donโ€™t want a president that has tried to destroy democracy and overthrow the government of the UNITED STATES of. AMERICA

          1. the swamp still needs cleaning out mainly Pe-lousey and Schumer that love wasting Tax payers money for their own greed. they are a joke and care nothing for U S of America get your head out of your A–

  15. Pardon lots, but to really stick it to the left, pardon Julian Assange. The only reason the US wants him is because he received the Hillary documents. They will all be apoplectic.

  16. I love President Trump and all that he has done for America! I’m sure he’ll go down as one of the best presidents in American history. I also hope President Trump will pardon himself, because who knows what those crazies in the Democrat Party will attempt to do to him!

  17. I for one will miss Trump! I have been with him from the start! His heart was in the right place but had so many fighting against him! Just think if he had been able to finish his work to Make America Great! Too bad Biden will destroy his work, well Obama and his criminal gang! Everything done against Trump has been vengeance carried out by Liberal Democratโ€™s and Never Trumpers. I would hate to be Bidenโ€™s Administration for after Trumpโ€™s Presidency the Republicans have not and will not forget it! Thereโ€™s a little thing called charges by the Ukraine government Sleepy Joe will have to deal with! He canโ€™t blame that on Trump either! Itโ€™s a Hunter, Joe, and Joeโ€™s brother criminal activity about to come across the ocean!

  18. Please President Trump Pardon Everyone including Yourself & Then Gang Together & starting with Clintons, & Going ALL the way to Present Day USA, Put all those RATS in Prison, Finally…Or have SCOTUS have them Finally EXECUTED…Costs us Taxpayers too much to Feed them in Prison…(Pelosi, Eats too much Ice Cream, & it drives up the cost for us Little Patriots.)

  19. LuAnn no boat to China, they will be invited in. Letโ€™s hope the Republicans that voted for impeachment are Voted out. Iโ€™m afraid, right now, there are to many evil forces against. Only GOD
    can save us if enough ppl believe.

  20. I can’t imagine more loathsome creatures running this great country as Biden and Pelosi who are both interested in their own personal wealth and power. This is at the expense of the tax payers and America. Biden acts like a senile old coot. A woman came forward and claimed he raped her, he has no plan for our future except to raise taxes 75per cent. Biden and his son are part of the graft and corruption in the US, Ukraine, China and other foreign countries as evidenced by his quid pro quo statements, involved witnesses, backroom deals, and documents. We can never trust our politicians ever again! I can assure you I speak for at least half of America! Trump is the only politician who actually worked for America. As for Palosi, this crooked politician did nothing for four years but impeach a President who did more for America than any other President. Why would anyone vote for this hypocrite? She makes sure no one can open their business in order to earn a living and at the same time she makes the business open for just herself without the requisite mask. No legitimate legislation was passed while she held the gavel unless she tried to fill it with her pork barrel big money special interest. All she ever did was try to Impeach the President. Her far left socialist agenda seems to be fueled by her hatred for Americans and all things Trump. How could anyone vote for that unless she and her rich cronies cheated on the voting system?

  21. Have faith fellow Patriots. President Trump will still be President. These traitors think they have won. They will lose in the end. Our mighty God and our military is working to take them out by arresting them for treason, soon.
    We canโ€™t let the best President of our time leave. I agree with all of you. We need him for four more years at least to really make this country and itโ€™s people prosper and great.

    1. lets hope you’re right……I feel like God has not heard our prayers, all the churches and different religions have united to pray for our President and poor Mr Trump is being martyred time and time again. It almost looks like evil will prevail, I’ve just about given up on saying my rosary daily for Mr Trump. God bless him and his family, God bless us patriots that love our country and our president.

  22. He is the best and will be as long as I am alive. I am 86 years young so the longevity I have talked of is not rewarded. But he is and has been the very best President I have seen in my life time and I don’t see any change in the future with what has taken place here of late.!!!

    1. I posted a comment asking President Trump to pardon himself for being hated by the democrat/socialists and for being loved by his supporters AND I DON’T SEE IT ON HERE.

    2. I replied saying a comment of mine IN NOT on here asking Mr Trump to pardon himself for being hated so much by the never Trumpers and I don’t see it, this is the third post ….lets see what happens !
      WHATS GOING ON HERE ?

  23. So he is pardoning a few n on criminals unlike his lordship obama who pardoned at least seven thousand and they were and are hardened criminals and now back on the streets

  24. Thank you President Trump for all you did for us deplorables and USA. I am 80 yr old Texan and sick & tired of Washington DC & Democrat Socialists. Maybe time for new party โ€” or get rid of rhinos. Maybe it is time for Texas to go independent. You were best thing that happened to our country. They cheated & most informed people agree.

  25. Unless all these liars and cheaters repent and change their lives, their time in the hereafter won’t be so cushy. Also, they won’t be able to tell God that they are good Christians and deserve heaven. He knows them.

  26. Trump is the best! My heart goes out to him and his family. Melania, you are a class act and may God watch over you. You’ve endured more than most. I pray the liar’s, cheats and thief’s will have their day!

  27. Best president in recent history, Trump will be back in 2024 and I will support him, biden did not win the election he stole ballots from Trump TRUMP WON THE ELECTION, TRUMP IN 2024, NEVER bIDEN ……… NEVER.

  28. TRUMP SHOULD PARDON PELOSI, MAYBE SHE WILL HAVE A HEART ATTACK AND KICK THE BUCKET!

    GOD FORGIVE ME, THE DEVIL MADE ME SAY IT !

  29. Was hoping at the last minute President Trump would have a surprise for them and still be president. Best one
    ever
    Biden will never be considered my president nor Harris

  30. We The People of over 100 Million should fund a legal system paid with our taxes that would normally be collected and spent on trials that Congress initiates for their own personal agendas and use them instead to try, convict and Lock away corrupted politicians and to preserve The Constitution! Of course it would all be a write off so we would not have any other tax Burdens from income! And Billions wouldn’t be used to do business with other States affairs abroad. Money would stay right here in our Country’s system!

  31. TO PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU HAVE DONE FOR THIS COUNTRY IN FOUR YEARS WHAT NO OTHER
    PRESIDENT WAS ABLE TO DO MAKE AMERICA GREAT GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND
    KNOW WE LOVE YOU

  32. It took China, their media, our media, all the dems, twitter, Face Book, Google, Rhinos, Crooked voting machines, Under handed Governors and Secretaries of state, Illegal ballots sent out to all live and dead people etc. A crooked FBI, Justice Department and American Courts, including our Supreme Court to pull this farce off, but they seem to have succeeded in removing the Greatest President of the people this Country has ever had.
