Trump Tower meeting with Russians 'treasonous', Steve Bannon says in explosive book
The guardian UK ^ | 3/1/18 | D Smith

Posted on 01/03/2018 8:17:45 AM PST by Be Careful

Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s 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: “They’re 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 Trump’s closest allies expressing contempt for him.

Looks like Bannon has turned on Trump for whatever reason.
I’m guessing he is still licking his wounds from Alabama election.

Good thing Bannon’s not bitter because he was thrown out after helping Trump get elected.

Bannon seems insane.

I wonder what he thinks of the fake Russian dossier.

Not sure what to make of this blow-up but if DJT doesn’t fire off some angry tweets in Bannon’s direction I bet this is some sort of agreed upon coordinated effort.

***WARNING***

Don’t believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets like THE GUARDIAN, that proved themselves to be intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.

Why don’t we follow Trump’s lead here on FR? Let’s limit posting headlines from these wretched Lying Leftist outlets. It’s okay, like Trump, to read this stuff, so you know what they’re up to - just don’t post using these Lying Leftist outlets as the source which is a form of promoting their lies. Do like Trump – post the truth about the issue using a reasonably reliable source or yourself as the source. That’s how to EXPOSE the lies without promoting them.

Exactly. Don Jr has already concluded his testimony, which was not on national TV.

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.

Is there some reason to think this “Michael Wolff” has any real quotes in his book?

He is pissed because he got booted. He was one of the people leaking from the White House to damage Kushner and Don Jr and Ivanka...

Perhaps we know now why Bannon was pushed out after 2 months.

I’ve been telling people for months that Bannon is not the conservative hero we think he is.

Now. Having said this - again. I will concede that this report here may be Fake News. It may or may not be true at all.

But it adds to my concern that Bannon is not to be trusted.

Bannon should issue a correction today.

He’s already lost a lot of steam with the Alabama loss (stolen election).

A spat with Don Jr. over a fake news story doesn’t help his cause.

Hasn’t it been proven that the “Russian” woman Don Jr. met with as actually a Ukrainian who worked for Fusion GPS (DNC)?
