The former chief strategist for the president faces federal charges for allegedly misusing funds from the 'We Build the Wall' campaign

President Donald Trump is considering issuing a pardon for his former adviser, Steve Bannon, according to a new report.

Politico reported the claim Friday, citing "two sources familiar with the matter" while noting that Bannon "was charged with swindling donors to a private crowdsourcing effort to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border."

Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News Network, and three others linked to the "We Build the Wall" campaign were arrested in August over allegations that they defrauded donors in the initiative and siphoned off funds from the $25 million haul for personal use. Bannon called the indictment "a political hitjob."

Following Bannon's arrest, Trump distanced himself from the former White House aide, saying of the "We Build the Wall" effort, "When I read about it, I didn't like it. I said, 'This is for government; this isn't for private people.' And is sounded to me like showboating."
