Stephen Bennon Charged with Fraud

    President Trump's former campaign advisor and former runner of news site Breakbart has been charged with defrauding donors of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The money had been donated for the WE BUILD THE WALL  project that is meant to raise money for President Trump's border wall between Mexico and the United States. He collected money from donors and told them that it would be going to a certain foundation but really he took some of the money for himself. The project had raised over $25 million dollars and Mr. Bennon took almost $1 million dollars of it for himself. Steve Bennon was arrested on a big yacht that was owned by one of his colleagues. He was pleaded not guilty which means that he said that he was innocent but if found guilty, will face a much worse punishment. Bannon was set free from jail on a $5 million dollar bond which means that he is able to get out of jail if he pays a certain price but since he can’t afford that price someone else helps him pay it. Until the court case he must give up his passport and is only allowed to travel to certain places for work. Trump had said that he hadn’t been working with Bennon for awhile and even admitted that he disliked private efforts to construct the border wall. Although President Trump has distanced himself from Bennon he had onced applauded him. Steve Bennon has stolen a ton of money from donors for his personal use.

The Democratic National Convention

    From August 17th to August 20th, the four-day Democratic National Convention took place. The DNC is where delegates from all 50 states and from US territories gather every four years. The goal is to formally nominate one candidate for president nominee, and for the vice president nominee to formally accept the nomination. It is also to unify the Demicratic party and to state their platforms and issues. This year the main ones are immigration, climate change, a COVID-19 response, and black rights. Usually, the convention is held in person and changes places every time. But this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was virtual and broadcasted from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Many important democrats spoke, including Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, Jill Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden. The outcome of the DNC was that Joe Biden is the official Democratic president nominee and Kamala Harris is the official VP nominee.

Bayern Munich Won the Champions League Final

    On August 23, Bayern Munich became the first team to win every game in the Champions League. Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman scored the first and only goal at the 59’ minute to win them the trophy. It wasn’t the best final, but it still had some exciting play. The better final was the Europa League Final, which is a lower league than the Champions League. The Champions League is the best 32 teams in Europe, the Europa League is the next 48 teams. The bottom teams of the Champions League then get to play in the Europa League. Don’t get confused, it’s a tournament, not a league! Anyway, in the Europa League Final, Sevilla Diego Carlos performed a Bicycle kick to win the Europa League. This was a great season, and I can’t wait for the next!

  • Bayern Munich won the Champions League

  • Bayern Munich became the first team to win all games in the Champions League

  • Sevilla won the Europa League

  • Champions League and Europa League are a tournament, not a league
