Another Trump aide indictment
Prior to leading Trump's 2016 presidential bid, Bannon — a brash, aggressively conservative proponent of US nationalism — headed the far-right outlet Breitbart News.
Once a prominent voice in the president's ear, Bannon was behind some of Trump's most controversial moves, including his ban on some travelers from abroad and the decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement.
After frequent clashes with others in the White House including Trump, Steve Bannon was pushed out in August 2017.
Half a dozen close President Donald Trump associates have been indicted or convicted since he took over the White House, including several key leaders of his 2016 campaign effort.
Roger Stone — the president's longtime ally who was convicted on felony charges including obstructing the congressional Russian collusion probe — was the first person directly involved in Trump's campaign to receive clemency.
