Who are the writers for this season of America's reality? I mean, this is so over the top.
Donald Trump's former advisor Stephen Bannon was today charged with fraud and other crimes.
Bannon was arrested. On a boat. The USPS was involved.
From NBC New York:
A law enforcement source tells NBC New York that Bannon was arrested this morning without incident while aboard a boat off the coast of Westbrook, Connecticut. Bannon is not the owner of the boat.
NBC News and CBS News have both confirmed that Steve Bannon was arrested by agents of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, which is the criminal investigating arm of the Postal Service.
And can we all take a moment to relish the sweet irony that Bannon was taken into custody by US Postal Service Agents. Through rain, sleet, snow, and worse they deliver medication, paychecks, absentee ballots … and JUSTICE! https://t.co/XLnPRC92QW
