  • Bannon's Refusal to Testify [Explained by former Judicial Watch lawyer]

    During ten hours of questioning by the House Intelligence Committee, on the instructions of the Trump White House, Steve Bannon refused to testify about his work for the Trump administration and the Trump transition team. But the leaks tell us that Bannon did testify about his time working on the Trump election campaign for president. So let me explain, as an attorney who worked for Judicial Watch under Larry Klayman and has more recently performed legal work for Klayman at Freedom Watch. The elites in Congress and the news media should know better. The Washington establishment was all upset, as...

    Steve Bannon made one conspicuous slip up in his closed-door hearing on Tuesday with the House Intelligence Committee, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the confidential proceedings. Bannon admitted that he'd had conversations with Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and legal spokesman Mark Corallo about Don Junior's infamous meeting with the Russians in Trump Tower in June 2016. Why it matters: The meeting — and the subsequent drafting of a misleading statement on Air Force One — has become one of the most important focal points of the Russia investigations, both on Capitol Hill and within Robert Mueller's team,...

    The White House believed it had an agreement with the House Intelligence Committee to limit questions for Steve Bannon only to events on the presidential campaign, a White House official told CNBC. According to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, staffers for the committee and the White House on Friday discussed the parameters of Bannon's testimony. Asked if negotiations over Bannon's testimony are ongoing as of Wednesday morning, the official said: "There's no negotiation now, they haven't engaged with us."

    Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon on Tuesday rocketed to the center of the public controversy surrounding the Trump campaign and Russia. The onetime Breitbart mogul now faces multiple subpoenas — from Capitol Hill and special counsel Robert Mueller — stemming from investigations of Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election. The House Intelligence Committee issued a pair of subpoenas, for both documents and testimony, when Bannon declined to answer some questions during an all-day interview on Tuesday, according to multiple sources. Earlier in the day, The New York Times reported that Mueller last week served Bannon a separate...

    WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, was subpoenaed last week by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, to testify before a grand jury as part of the investigation into possible links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

    Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon arrived on Capitol Hill this morning for a closed door meeting with the House Intelligence Committee. Bannon is expected to face questions about the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. This meeting comes after Bannon resigned as executive chairman of Breitbart News following the release of Michael Wolff’s tell-all "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." The book, which includes harsh comments from Bannon on the controversial June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign officials and a Russian lawyer, renewed questions about Trump’s campaign activity.

    Steve Bannon suggested that Donald Trump's lawyers paid off 100 women who had sexual encounters with the then-candidate during the 2016 presidential campaign. Porn star Stephanie Clifford is said to have been paid $130,000 in 2016 to keep quiet about an alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump. And Bannon, in an interview for journalist Michael Wolff's tell-all book about the Trump White House 'Fire and Fury', suggested that Clifford wasn't the only woman to receive a similar payout.

    In order to prove he doesn't have dementia, as alleged in a recent book, President Trump called a meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday -- and requested that it be televised. Ivanka: Show them at your best, Daddy! He then proceeded to completely sell out the base and actually added to his problems by appearing senile. In a half-dozen exchanges -- which, again, he wanted televised -- Trump responded to remarks as if he had no clue what the person was saying. One senator would talk -- he'd agree. Someone else would say the exact opposite -- he'd agree with...

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain confronted author Michael Wolff over the errors and journalism tactics used in his new controversial book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House on Wednesday. McCain asked Wolff about his credibility, which has been called into question since excerpts of the book were released last week and critics pointed out inconsistencies in his reporting. When Wolff tried to turn the conversation around, she began listing off a number of the book’s skeptics including President Trump, New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour. “This hits a special place for me because my family...

    What's next for Bannon? “I don't think he'll be quiet or silent for very long,” Kurt Bardella, a former Breitbart spokesman, told me. “Accepting fate or defeat is not in his DNA. Someone who entertains running for president doesn't just retreat and shrink away into anonymity. He will try and reinvent himself. He will try and finish what he started.” Bardella's remark about presidential ambitions refers to a December Vanity Fair article in which Gabriel Sherman reported that a White House run “has at least been a passing thought” for Bannon. “In October,” Sherman wrote, “Bannon called an adviser and...

I was talking to Snerdley — I don’t ask people, I tell them, I was saying, “I really would like to know who vouched for Wolff in the White House. Somebody had to tell somebody that Wolff was okay. Somebody had to vouch for the guy.” And everybody is saying that it’s Steve Bannon. And I’m not so sure that that’s right. And until I’m sure who it is, I’m not gonna speculate or say so,...

    Washington (CNN)Before Donald Trump and Steve Bannon were enemies, they were allies. And not long before that, Bannon was part of an effort to sink Trump's presidential hopes -- even if Trump didn't know it. A conservative watchdog group led by Bannon tried to discredit Trump in the early stages of the 2016 Republican presidential primary by shopping a document alleging that Trump had ties to mobsters

    Despite what the radical left wing press asserts, Donald Trump is not mentally impaired, nor is he naive or stupid. He would not allow an author with a highly dubious record But Wolff has also been taken to task for blurring the lines between hot take and hatchet job. “Wolff exploits the human tendency to confuse frankness and cruelty with truth-telling,” media critic Jack Shafer wrote in Slate in 1998. “And by repeatedly reminding the reader of what a dishonest, scheming little s- he is, he seeks to inflate his credibility.” As The Post’s Paul Farhi wrote this week, credibility...
