Posted on 01/03/2018 8:17:45 AM PST by Be Careful
Donald Trumps former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the presidents son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as treasonous and unpatriotic, according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian.
Trump-Russia investigation: the key questions answered Read more Bannon, speaking to author Michael Wolff, warned that the investigation into alleged collusion with the Kremlin will focus on money laundering and predicted: Theyre going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.
Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, reportedly based on more than 200 interviews with the president, his inner circle and players in and around the administration, is one of the most eagerly awaited political books of the year. In it, Wolff lifts the lid on a White House lurching from crisis to crisis amid internecine warfare, with even some of Trumps closest allies expressing contempt for him.

> He is denying it now:
The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor with no lawyers. They didnt have any lawyers.
She ran a scam on DJ Jr and it was about some MyJerky law and adopting chillen.
Crap quote and besides, Bannon has stated over and over he is on the Trump train and working to ensure he is successful...
Problem is these things get thrown out into the general population, and just like a fake print story, not everyone will see the retractions later on page 12 :(
Again, who gave the guy access?
Timing of this is not helpful—Trump has been winning the media war, I don’t the gains lost.
My guess is there are plenty of lies from Wolfe and some from the White House staffers as well—many changes in staff...and likely a few were disgruntled.
DRUDGE siren up.
TRUMP DOWNLOADS ON ‘PRETENDER’ BANNON
So, if that meeting is treason, and the press buys into that, anyone involved with the dossier is doubly a traitor.
Which might be the long term point.
He must have gotten incredible levels of pushback. Plus he can’t decide if it’s fake or taken out of context. If it’s fake he didn’t say it. If it’s out of context then he should elaborate. In what context is it acceptable to call an innocent meeting “treason,”?
The quotes would have been from before the Alabama vote.
I agree with you on Bannon. I’m unclear why so many people on the site were unwilling to realize who he was.
Bannon’s latest Tweet (around an hour ago): https://twitter.com/stevekbannon?lang=en
“This is total Fake News and taken out of context, dont believe the liberal propaganda Machine! #MAGA”
No wonder schizophrenic Steve Bannon has been walking around with a small army of bodyguards...
As FW said, fake or taken out of context?
We’ll have to see what the ‘Trump Downloads on Bannon’ is all about. Not a live link, at Drudge, right now. No new Trump tweets, that I can see.
Is that a real Bannon account? Parody account? Not sure.
Link is up or coming, something about Bannon lost his mind.
Dunno, but if it’s fake news, Bannon needs to get his ass on TV and deny it, pronto.
It seems to me that if people had the audio of Bannon saying these things many of them would still be in denial that he'd said it.
Fox news reporting that DJT just torched Bannon, so the split is very real.
When Bannon first left the WH, Breitbart went into a kind of hysterical anti-Trump spasm such as I’ve never even witnessed on the left. To the very best of my memory it didn’t even last 48 hours. Before long the site was back to normal, with the exception of a periodically posted anti-Kushner gossip rant.
It was then that was when I concluded Bannon is not a balanced personality. He can go to extremes. I would imagine conservative pushback helped bring sanity back to Breitbart then, and to Bannon now. Jmo.
