US officials have entered the Chinese consulate in Houston Texas, after diplomatic staff there complied with an order from the Trump administration to shut down. The US says the consulate was a hub for espionage and intellectual property theft related to coronavirus vaccine research.

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and three other men, Brian Kolfage, Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea, have been indicted on charges of defrauding donors who gave money to "We Build the Wall," an online fundraising campaign to help build a border wall.

Former Trump senior adviser Steve Bannon and three others were indicted today for allegedly defrauding donors out of $25 million through their "We Build the Wall" campaign.

CBSN legal contributor Keir Dougall joined CBSN's "Red and Blue" to break down the charges.
