As reported by Fox News Brian Kolfage was arrested yesterday, August 20th, in Florida over accusations he siphoned funds from the $27 million raised by his ‘We Build The Wall’ campaign. Brian’s wife Ashley Kolfage has spoken out on the incident and now everyone’s intrigued by the TikTok star.
Brian Kolfage is a triple amputee and Purple Heart veteran who lost an arm and two legs in Iraq, 2004. He and his wife Ashely, 34, married in 2011 after he met her whilst she was working as a Chilli’s waitress.
Brian is an avid Trump supporter and the pair seem to spend a lot of time on their boat or in their home which is in a golf community in Miramar Beach. After Brian’s alleged arrest, Ashley has been updating fans on Instagram, leading people to be intrigued by who she is.
Brian Kolfage’s ‘We Build The Wall’ arrest
- Brian Kolfage set up a GoFundMe page in support of President Trump with hopes of building a border wall between the US and Mexico.
According to The Daily Mail, the fund would pay shell companies that would then put the money back into accounts held by Brian or Ashley, putting the transactions down as for ‘media’, ‘consulting’ or ‘social media’.
Prosecutors allegedly say that Brian Kolfage, Steve Bannon, Timothy Shea and Andrew Badolato have all lied to donors who gave money to the page by claiming that all proceeds would go towards building the wall.
A few days before the arrest Brian launched another GoFundMe page, this time targeting Black Lives Matter protestors for ‘fueling racist hate attacks against innocent Americans’. Brian tried to raise up to $500,000 but the page was taken down by GoFundMe after less than 24 hours.
Brian was released on Thursday (August 20th) afternoon and Ashley took to Instagram to upload a story saying: ‘Brian is on his way home… that didn’t last long. Thanks for all the prayers’.
