Steve Bannon to be interviewed by House committee on Russian Federation probe

The rise and fall of Steve Bannon

Bannon stepped down as chairman of the Breitbart News Network Wednesday after a public break with President Donald Trump. But I'll admit to a moment of schadenfreude as the man who not yet a year ago made the cover of Time magazine as "the great manipulator" was reduced to publicly sucking up to his once useful idiot. Now, he's been disowned and nicknamed "Sloppy Steve" by the President he worked to elect.

Mr Bannon could attempt to start a new venture without Mr Ailes or perhaps go back to making documentaries. "I consider it work", Trump said.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House-which paints the president as disengaged, ill-informed and unstable-has seen Bannon abandoned by financial patrons, condemned by erstwhile allies and ridiculed by Trump himself. Or, alternatively, whether Trump stays popular and reembraces Bannon, which is always a possibility with Trump. Bannon and Wolff cease-and-desist letters, citing an alleged breach of a nondisclosure agreement Mr. Bannon has supposedly signed.

His ties with Trump were already strained after he was forced from his White House job last summer and frayed completely this month when a new book quoted Bannon as describing a controversial Trump campaign meeting with a Kremlin-tied lawyer in June 2016 as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

A Presidential Fury Propels Wolff Book to No. 1

The catalyst for this freakish bombshell is a recently released insider book on Mr. Trump and his administration by free-lance writer Michael Wolff.

Despite the setback, Bannon has told confidants that he believes Trump, after a cooling-off period, will again seek his counsel, noting that the president often maintains contact with aides he has fired. "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Mr. Trump said in a longer-than-280-character official statement.

It's like the movie "Mean Girls", except it's in the White House. "It is the only thing he does well". 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.

He is quoted as saying that Trump Jr. committed treason by his dealing with the Russians and that Ivanka was stupid as a brick. "Our current libel laws are a sham and a disgrace, and do not represent American values or American fairness", he said.
