First, I don’t trust a word of any “fake” news outlet.
If at all true Bannon is acting like a jilted lover. Sadly, IMHO that discredits him as it seems “more about me” than ending the Deep State.
Perhaps we know now why Bannon was pushed out after 2 months.
Nothingburger, yet more fake news...
David Smith reports in the Guardian:
[Bannon] is particularly scathing about a June 2016 meeting involving Trumps son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner, then campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York. A trusted intermediary had promised documents that would incriminate rival Hillary Clinton but instead of alerting the FBI to a potential assault on American democracy by a foreign power, Trump Jr replied in an email: I love it.
The meeting was revealed by the New York Times in July last year, prompting Trump Jr to say no consequential material was produced. Soon after, Wolff writes, Bannon remarked mockingly: 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.
Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think its all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.
Bannon went on, Wolff writes, to say that if any such meeting had to take place, it should have been set up in a Holiday Inn in Manchester, New Hampshire, with your lawyers who meet with these people. Any information, he said, could then be dump[ed] down to Breitbart or something like that, or maybe some other more legitimate publication.
Bannon added: You never see it, you never know it, because you dont need to But thats the brain trust that they had.

Here’s the author... whose other claims to fame include saying Limbaugh has no power in the media, Fox news is unpopular, and Murdoch is going to buy the NY Times.
My exact reaction.
