Outgoing US President Donald Trump has decided to pardon his former adviser, Steve Bannon, accused of fraud in the case of building the separation wall with Mexico, according to CNN.
Steve Bannon, a former Trump advisor, was accused of “defrauding” hundreds of thousands of donors who donated to the campaign to build the separation wall on the border with Mexico, which raised about $ 25 million.
The network said that Trump made the decision at the last moment, just hours before he was due to leave the White House.
She explained that after many discussions, Trump decided to pardon his former adviser, Steve Bannon, despite officials’ warnings not to take this step.
This comes as Trump prepares to leave Washington, before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.
