Steve Bannon to be interviewed by House committee on Russian Federation probe

  • Former Breitbart Spokesman Says Bannon Is a Liability

Bannon, who recently resigned as chairman of Breitbart News, was named CEO of Donald Trump's presidential campaign in August 2016.

Bannon has tried to explain away his insults as misunderstandings. The representation does not extend to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe or to Bannon's transition to government and his White House service, the person said.

The committee is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election as well as allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Less than a year ago, Time magazine put Mr Stephen Bannon on its cover and wondered whether he might be the second most powerful man in the world.

'New Mutants' Pushed Back to 2019 to Possibly Make it Scarier
Additionally, Fox is moving its horror-themed X-Men movie " New Mutants " back 10 whole months from April 13 to February 22, 2019. Free Association's Tatum and Reid Carolin are producing the film with X-Men overseers Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg.


Inside the White House, Bannon was viewed as the keeper of Trump's nationalistic flame, charting the progress on the president's promises to his base on dry erase boards in his office. Bannon also suggested that Trump and his family would likely be brought down by a massive money laundering operation that Mueller and his team would soon uncover. He issued a statement Sunday praising the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., whom he was quoted accusing of treasonous behavior in the book.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders last Thursday said Breitbart should "look at and consider" cutting ties with Mr Bannon. Bannon and Wolff cease-and-desist letters, citing an alleged breach of a nondisclosure agreement Mr. Bannon has supposedly signed. He left the White House just four months later, but by then Mr Ailes had died.

It was no wonder the Trump White House came off from the outside as a confused madhouse, with a president constantly getting mixed messages and making decisions as an ill-informed neophyte would-be politician.

To the editor: The only forces that can control President Donald Trump are the Cabinet and the Republicans in Congress. As if we didn't already know that greed trumped security.
