Bannon to Testify Before House Intelligence Committee in Russia Probe

Trump told the Journal in his nearly hour-long interview that Lewandowski had more to do with his campaign's success than Bannon.

Linda Lavelle responded indignantly saying I smeared them and I responded that I don't smear but I warned her that Bannon was evil and I explained why with information then available from Breitbart News. Many were outraged that Bannon questioned President Trump's mental fitness and disparaged his elder son, Donald Trump Jr., calling his actions "treasonous".

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. Bannon also suggested that Trump and his family would likely be brought down by a massive money laundering operation that Mueller and his team would soon uncover.

"Bannon and others who "know too much" can be unsafe to a president with a few too many secrets", she wrote. "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Mr Trump said in a statement delivered to reporters last week.

But those projects might require fundraising and Mr Bannon, through his falling-out with Mr Trump, has alienated the billionaire Mercer clan, which would have been his most natural source of financial support.

Mr Bannon could attempt to start a new venture without Mr Ailes or perhaps go back to making documentaries. The Daily Beast first reported on Thursday that he had agreed to the interview.

Bannon's departure from Breitbart came as a shock to some of his allies.

Mr Trump and Mr Bannon began working together in August, 2016, when Mr Bannon joined Mr Trump's presidential campaign to help it enter the final stretch of the election.

The White House has been lobbying aggressively to maintain the authority, against a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers - conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats - who say the act compromises civil liberties.

He is also reportedly representing White House counsel Don McGahn and former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus in relation to the Russian Federation investigation.
