Bannon to exit Breitbart News Network after break with Trump

Bannon to exit Breitbart News Network after break with Trump

Bannon liquidated his equity stake in the operation when he left for the White House, leaving him with a greatly diminished say in the matter.

He is quoted as saying that Trump Jr. committed treason by his dealing with the Russians and that Ivanka was stupid as a brick.

Former White House adviser Stephen Bannon has stepped down from his post at Breitbart News after he was quoted disparaging President Donald Trump's children in a new book about the administration, the right-wing news website confirmed Tuesday.

"You'll see that a lot with me", Trump said about his fiery tweets and nuclear missile threats.

After the book's publication, Bannon expressed regret about his statements, saying said his criticism was aimed at Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman who also attended the meeting.

The June 2016 meeting, in which Donald Jr. and other Trump campaign staff met with Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya, provided evidence of an attempt by the campaign to seek out damaging information on Hillary Clinton from Russian sources.

He quickly presided over the brand of economic populism promoted by Trump and was hired as chief strategist for the White House. That matters, because if anyone could hurt this president by spilling what he knows, it could well be Steve Bannon - and if that is somehow the result of all this latest drama around the former King of Breitbart, a lot more lawyers could find themselves on retainer in D.C.

Trump replied to Bannon's comments with fury, saying "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind". "I don't believe there's any way back for Mr. Bannon at this point", Gidley said.

They reportedly first met in 2010, through an introduction from the head of conservative group Citizens United David Bossie, Mr Bannon once said during an interview on CBS. 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.

The House Intelligence Committee is one of three congressional panels investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and links to the Trump campaign. Burck already represents White House Counsel Don McGahn and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the Mueller inquiry.
