Bannon to testify before Congress on Russian interference in 2016 election

Bannon to testify before Congress on Russian interference in 2016 election

Author Michael Wolff on Wednesday took credit for Stephen Bannon's ouster from Breitbart News after the publication of his controversial book about the Trump White House, but said that he doesn't "feel good about" it. Burck has also reportedly represented White House Counsel Don McGahn and former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into the Russian Federation issue.

The committee is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election as well as allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

The catalyst for this weird bombshell is a recently released insider book on Mr. Trump and his administration by free-lance writer Michael Wolff. The former Trump campaign chief and White House adviser is gearing up for his interview with House investigators next. Many were outraged that Bannon questioned President Trump's mental fitness and disparaged his elder son, Donald Trump Jr., calling his actions "treasonous". Mr. Bannon, he said, had "very little to do with our historic victory". 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. Burck already represents White House Counsel Don McGahn and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the Mueller inquiry. Bannon did not apologize for his criticism of the president's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, with whom he had squabbled inside the West Wing.

Bannon doesn't quit, though, and he'll be back. He left the White House just four months later, but by then Mr Ailes had died.

US President Donald Trump walks to Marine One before leaving the White House on January 5, 2018. After the win, he accompanied Mr. Trump to the White House and became his chief strategist.

Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mueller's team.
