Witcover: The Trump-Bannon explosion

Witcover: The Trump-Bannon explosion

It also covers only Bannon's role on Trump's campaign, as opposed to events that occurred during the presidential transition or while Bannon served as a top aide to Trump in the White House.

To the editor: The only forces that can control President Donald Trump are the Cabinet and the Republicans in Congress.

The news comes two days after Bannon stepped down from Breitbart, the far-right website he returned to over the summer as executive chairman after being ousted from the White House.

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

According to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, less than 20-percent of GOP voters said they had a favorable view of Bannon. "A hundred percent of what Steve says I probably don't agree with, but I came to appreciate a, his insights and b, to believe this was a man who thought he had a job to do". Bannon said in a statement released on Sunday that his comments were directed at Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, and not aimed at the president's son.

The book claimed that Mr Bannon had frequently disparaged Mr Trump's adult children, saying that a meeting Donald Trump Jr accepted with a Russian source in Trump Tower was "treasonous", and that Ivanka Trump was "dumb as a brick".

By now that judgment is so well proven that even Trump has pretended to hardly know Bannon despite the obvious fact that Bannon did more than anyone to win the election for Trump. Under Mr. Bannon, Breitbart had become a vehicle for his own political ambitions, including clashes with the Republican Party establishment and national committee, which he appeared to be targeting for a takeover. "I don't believe there's any way back for Mr. Bannon at this point", Gidley said. Burck already represents White House Counsel Don McGahn and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the Mueller inquiry. But if he was damaged by the electoral defeat of his preferred candidate, Roy Moore, in Alabama, his fall from grace was cemented by Fire and Fury.
