Defamed Steve Bannon And Corey Lewandowski to testify This week before the Intel Committee.
While we aren’t really sure what to expect from the ‘wild card’ Steve Bannon, Corey has already gone on record basically stating ‘asking me whatever you want I have no involvement’. Bannon, on the other hand, could have a score to settle.
I would like to believe that Bannon’s comments in the book (Fire and Fury) were either taken out of context or perhaps he made them shortly after being fired. Perhaps not realizing President Trump would keep him in the folds to some extent but the reality is no matter what his reason Bannon bashed the Trump family and discredited his own name. We can only hope his moral compass is turned on during his testimony and not his need for fame. What type of impact can an angry ex-employee really have? Take a look.
Former White House chief strategist and ex-Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon will testify before the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday as part of its Russia probe, in what will be his first appearance on Capitol Hill since the Michael Wolff book firestorm.
Bannon, who stepped down as executive chairman of Breitbart News last week following a dramatic falling out with the president over Wolff’s anti-Trump book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” will be interviewed behind closed doors by congressional investigators probing Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election.
A source close to the committee told Fox News that Bannon would likely be questioned over information in Wolff’s book.
In the book, Bannon slams the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Bannon called their infamous June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya during the campaign “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
