Fox Business host Lou Dobbs has blamed the "deep state" conspiracy theory for the arrest of Steve Bannon, the former Trump campaign manager who on Thursday pleaded not guilty to a charge of skimming donations from a fundraising campaign for a border wall with Mexico.

Bannon himself is a key propagator of the theory that unknown government operatives are working against the Trump administration – but has also said the idea is "for nut cases" and should not be taken seriously.

Addressing the story on his show on Thursday night, Dobbs, one of Donald Trump's favorite Fox hosts, said Bannon "was arrested this morning, not by the FBI or US Marshals but by inspectors of the US Postal Service while Bannon was cruising aboard a mega yacht, owned by a Chinese billionaire".
