Steve Bannon surrenders to New York prosecutors in border wall fraud case

• By Snejana Farberov,

Bannon lashed out at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as he was escorted into the DA's Lower Manhattan headquarters, accusing the progressive Democrat of mounting a political prosecution to influence the upcoming midterm elections.

"This is all about 60 days to the day," he said in a reference to Nov. 8, which is Election Day.

Bannon also invoked a trip by city officials who were sent on a "fact-finding" mission to the southern border by Mayor Eric Adams amid his clash with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott over the relocation of migrants to the Big Apple.

"This is an irony: on the very day the mayor of this city has a delegation down on the border, they're persecuting people here," he said.
