Stephen Bannon already avoided criminal prosecution for fraud with a last-minute pardon by Donald Trump, but he’s still pushing for a judge to dismiss the charges because they’re mucking up the title to property he owns in the chic seaside enclave of Laguna Beach, California, records show.

As a condition of bail after Bannon was charged in August, a $1.75 million lien was placed against the Laguna Beach home, according to a Feb. 18 letter his lawyer sent privately to U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres in New York. It was filed publicly as part of the case on Tuesday.
