  • Former Breitbart Spokesman Says Bannon Is a Liability

Bannon, a former investment banker and Hollywood filmmaker, will work with Breitbart on a smooth and orderly transition, the site said.

The New York Times reports that Bannon's departure was forced by Rebekah Mercer, a Republican megadonor whose investment in Breitbart gave her a seat on the board.

"I'm proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class platform", Mr Bannon was quoted as saying in the announcement.

Mr Bannon has tried to make amends. "Donald Trump, Jr.is both a patriot and a good man".

President Trump's anger over the Russian Federation investigation melded with his itchy Twitter finger on Thursday to undermine support for an intelligence program that the White House has been lobbying hard to preserve.

In the book, Bannon said it was "treasonous" of Trump's son Donald Trump Jr.to accept a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 who he thought would provide damaging information about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his father's campaign.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. That matters, because if anyone could hurt this president by spilling what he knows, it could well be Steve Bannon - and if that is somehow the result of all this latest drama around the former King of Breitbart, a lot more lawyers could find themselves on retainer in D.C. "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. Now, he's been disowned and nicknamed "Sloppy Steve" by the President he worked to elect. "I don't believe there's any way back for Mr. Bannon at this point", Gidley said.

Also Thursday, Daily Caller editor-in-chief Geoff Ingersoll offered Bannon an internship at TheDC.

The poll was taken before Bannon was sacked from Breitbart. Bannon has agreed to an interview with the committee, which is investigating Russia's election meddling and links to the Trump campaign.

Bannon was said to have kept in touch with Trump after leaving the White House, but Trump last week publicly rebuked Bannon for comments he made in Michael Wolff's new book "Fire and Fury".
