Wolff's book confirms early criticism of Trump, Bannon

Michael Wolff Michael Smerconish Fire and Fury interview smerc_00000000

Donald Trump's former White House strategist Steve Bannon has stepped down from Breitbart News, the conservative news outlet announced on Tuesday, still roiled in controversy over incendiary remarks about the president quoted in a new book.

"What did we have?" By meeting at the Capitol on December 5 and 6 with more than a dozen Democratic lawmakers and a Republican senator, Professor Bandy X. Lee, a psychiatry professor form the Univeristy of Yale, warned that Trump is going to get worse and argued that his excessive use of the social network Twitter is a sign that he sinks under stress.

After the publication by Business Insider, Michelle Goldberg of The New York Times tweeted the page.

Trump lashed out at Bannon for comments made in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", which questions the president's fitness for office.

After days of silence amid withering criticism from his former colleagues and his largest benefactor, Bannon tried to make amends. In response to Bannon's having called a June 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians "treasonous" and "unpatriotic", Trump said in a statement that his former colleague had "lost his mind".

"Our country's libel laws are a sham and a disgrace, and do not reflect American values of fairness", Trump said at a Cabinet meeting Wednesday, saying the issue was on his administration's 2018 agenda.

Hope Hicks, the White House communications director, and Corey Lewandowski, Trump's first campaign manager, are also expected to testify in the near future, according to the source.

As late as last weekend, Bannon continued to tell people that he planned to stay in charge at Breitbart and that Solov supported him.

Burck also said the representation only pertains to the Republican-led House investigation, and not special counsel Robert Mueller's independent probe.

In what was seen as an attempt to show Trump is mentally fit and in command, the president had kept a pool of reporters, including a TV camera, inside of a meeting he had on Tuesday with USA lawmakers on immigration.

As predicted, Steve Bannon has now lost his post at Breitbart.

Bannon was chief executive of the Trump campaign in its final three months during the 2016 US elections.
