Curt Schilling We Build The Wall Arrest Tweets

This morning, former White House adviser Steve Bannon was arrested for allegedly defrauding donors as part of a ‘We Build the Wall’ GoFundMe that pledged to help President Donald Trump build a border wall.

Among those arrested were the founder, Brian Kolfage, and two other associates: Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea.

But many people have loose associations with the fundraising group, including former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, ex-Congressman Tom Tancredo, former Blackwater CEO Erik Prince, and former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling.

They are all listed as part of the We Build the Wall advisory board.

None of those men were arrested, but a viral article from a dubious news site helped spark a rumor that Schilling, who led the Red Sox and Diamondbacks to World Series wins, was among those arrested.

“Curt Schilling” was even trending on Twitter.

The site, Today’s Five, does not produce any links or evidence for its claim, merely stating: “Today’s Five is now receiving reports that ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has also been arrested and is in custody. Although charges have not been announced as of yet, the arrest comes after alleged involvement with Steve Bannon.”

However, there has been no evidence for this claim.

Schilling, who has made a turn to right-wing politics in the past decade, is listed on the We Build the Wall site as part of its team.

The former pitcher was not listed among those federal prosecutors announced charges for. Authorities have not made any additional announcements.

We will update this post if any are made.
