Steve Bannon quits Breitbart News

Steve Bannon quits Breitbart News

Michael Wolff, the author of the new White House tell-all "Fire and Fury", said Monday both current and former top White House officials encouraged other aides "to cooperate" in interviews for the book.

The post included a statement from Breitbart CEO Larry Solov praising Bannon as "a valued part of our legacy".

In a statement, Bannon commended his team, saying, "I'm proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform". He joined the Trump campaign in August 2016. Without naming names, he said the word in the West Wing is Trump is "bouncing off the walls" because of the book.

A behind-the-scenes account of Mr Donald Trump's presidency sold out in less than 24 hours after arriving in Singapore last Friday.

But the "Fire and Fury" soap opera that has the political world riveted is the big cat fight between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump.

The subpoena set off negotiations between Starr and Clinton's lawyers, which ultimately resulted in Clinton being questioned at the White House instead of in a courthouse, where almost all grand jury appearances occur.

You know what journalists tend to do? But Bannon said Sunday that the comments were aimed not at Trump's son but rather at former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. But this is absolutely true, that Steve Bannon is responsible for Donald Trump's election.

"Bannon's departure from Breitbart came as a shock to some of his allies".

Bannon's ouster from Breitbart is just the latest chapter in the rise and fall of the unlikely Washington character.

Ms Mercer has been dubbed "the First Lady of the alt-right" by conservative news publisher Christopher Ruddy.


Gidley also said Trump stands by his belief that Bannon has "lost it" and is "only in it for himself", The Hill reported.

Bannon also suggested to Wolff that President Trump likely met the Russian visitors when they were at Trump Tower, despite Trump's denials that he even knew about the meeting. If you were an immigration hawk, you thought Trump was the only one who would secure the border. As a matter of policy, his administration has been indistinguishable from what one might have expected from John McCain or Mitt Romney, had they become president. So the writing was there.

Some of the findings were known, like Trump's insistence that the infamous Billy Bush "Access Hollywood" tape was altered.

When pressed if he would release tapes of his interviews, he pushed back.

Trump is to undergo the first physical examination of his presidency on January 12. "I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius ... and a very stable genius at that!" Is it Bannon? Is it Breitbart?

Murdoch, however, then informed Trump that "for eight years these guys had Obama in their pocket", sharing a sentiment common among traditional media executives.

MCEVERS: What are we to make of Bannon's rise and fall, then? What do we learn from all this?

"I think it's a disgrace", he said.

"You should believe all of it, that's the scary thing", Wolff replied.
