Bannon steps down from Breitbart News following White House furor

14 January 2018

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is expected to testify before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed session next week, NBC News reported on Friday, citing two sources.

"What did we have?" Bannon was forced to step down after pressure from the Trump administration and the website's main financial backer, hedge fund billionaire Rebekah Mercer. Many were outraged that Bannon questioned President Trump's mental fitness and disparaged his elder son, Donald Trump Jr., calling his actions "treasonous".

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

"White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also slapped Wolff's book, accusing that it is "filled with false and misleading accounts", noting that Trump felt "furious" and" disgusted" about Bannon's comments in the book.

Cohen told WSJ that Trump denies "any such occurrence".

His remarks come in the wake of a book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House which is highly critical of him and the First Family.

After days of silence amid withering criticism from his former colleagues and his largest benefactor, Bannon tried to make amends. When promoting the book on its digital page as the number one bestseller of the moment, e-commerce company Amazon says that it is an approach to the first nine months of Trump in the power, which qualifies as stormy, scandalous and absolutely hypnotical.

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.

"And I think what the American people want to see is fairness".

In a tweet, Mr Trump claimed even Democrats know there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Bannon has agreed to an interview with the committee, which is investigating Russia's election meddling and links to the Trump campaign.
