Here is an example of what Wolff puts in Bannon's mouth:
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.
Frankly, those words do not sound like Bannon. . . especially from a man who is working for Breitbart as its Executive Editor. He would NOT disparage the company he works for with faint praise, suggesting "some other more legitimate publication" would be a better place to send such a bombshell of a scoop.
De-legitimizing Breitbart in a quote in a book is absurd. Bannon is no-slouch as a writer. Why does he talk to this author? This book sounds like a Liberal Trump hater's wet dream. . . with the timing of its release really suspicious. . . as are the words.
For Wolff to put these words in Bannon's mouth is also disingenuous: "He insists that he knows no Russians, will not be a witness, will not hire a lawyer and will not appear on national television answering questions."
Another claim that sounds strange is this: "He told the Guardian in November that to research the book, he showed up at the White House with no agenda but wanting to find out what the insiders were really thinking and feeling. He enjoyed extraordinary access to Trump and senior officials and advisers, he said, sometimes at critical moments of the fledgling presidency.
