The veteran who set up the GoFundMe for President Trump's border wall allegedly pocketed money meant for wounded veterans in the past, according to a new Buzzfeed News investigation.

Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee and Purple Heart recipient, reportedly previously spearheaded a crowdfunding campaign that raised thousands of dollars for an effort to mentor veterans at military hospitals.

Kolfage's fundraising effort for Trump's proposed border wall has so far received more than $20 million of a $1 billion goal from 334,860 donations.

Representatives at the military hospitals told Buzzfeed News that they did not have a record of Kolfage donating the money or working at their facilities.

GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne confirmed to Buzzfeed News that Kolfage in 2015 launched a GoFundMe that raised $16,246 under the premise that the money would go to a veteran mentorship program. Whitorne said the money went directly to Kolfage.

His spokesman says he pocketed the money. You fools always bitch about anonymous sources. Well, not anonymous now.

Couldn't say the Go Fund Me page for the wall...we had to add in "Trump's" wall that way the implied dishonesty reflects and connects Trump to it.

It's like the person who knows everything from just reading the headlines.

Not-So-Clever ploy. Roll Eyes

It is the gofundme featured on Fox news and countless other news outlets for Trump's wall. It's not the Bush wall or the Obama wall. It's not the Romney wall or the Ryan wall. It's not the Great Wall of China. It's not Hadrian's Wall. It is Trump's wall.

Here is the gofundme main photo:
