    President Donald Trump’s former strategist Steve Bannon will address the party congress of France’s far-right National Front in Lille Saturday, the party announced on Twitter. Bannon, who had been working for Trump as chief strategist until August last year, is currently on a tour of Europe, during which he visited Italy for the climax of the country’s election campaign last weekend. The former executive chairman of the right-wing Breitbart News described the success of the 5-Star movement and the far-right League as an “earthquake” and Italy’s version of the Trump vote. …

    American activists hijack Bannon's Zurich visit to raise money for gun safetyA group of Americans in Switzerland is using Steve Bannon’s first public speaking engagement in Europe to raise funds for gun violence prevention. Bannon, US President Donald Trump’s former right hand man and co-founder of far-right US news site Breitbart, will speak in Zurich on March 6th. The former White House Chief Strategist has repeatedly warned Trump against backing gun control, even after the mass shooting in Las Vegas in which 59 people died and 515 were injured. Now campaign group Action Together: Zurich, is turning Bannon’s appearance in...

    WASHINGTON — Steve Bannon, who served as President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, was interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller over multiple days this week, NBC News has learned from two sources familiar with the proceedings. Bannon spent a total of some 20 hours in conversations with the team led by Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia as well as other issues that have arisen around the probe.
  • GOP leaders weighing ‘further steps,’ including contempt proceedings, for Bannon

    House Republican leaders are weighing “further steps” to force former top White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon to answer investigators’ questions in their probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election — including potentially declaring him in contempt of Congress — after a Thursday interview they called “frustrating.” Bannon came to speak with the House Intelligence Committee under a subpoena the panel issued on the spot last month, when he refused to answer questions related to the transition period and his tenure in the White House. The interview came after Bannon met with investigators in special counsel Robert S. Mueller...
  • Bannon Must Challenge Robert Mueller in Court (Prosecutorial Misconduct)

    01/25/2018 9:55:44 AM PST · by Moseley · 13 replies
    Prosecutorial misconduct is a serious matter. It proved fatal to the prosecution of Senator Ted Stevens in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Criminal Case No. 1:08-cr-00231-EGS, before Emmett G. Sullivan, District Judge. Robert Mueller’s violations of U.S. Department of Justice regulations and ethical requirements of the legal profession are even worse than the tongue-lashing from Judge Sullivan on April 7, 2009, in the bungled prosecution of Stevens. Mueller’s ethically-challenged lawyers did not take the lesson in Anna Stolley Persky, “A Cautionary Tale: The Ted Stevens Prosecution,” Washington Lawyer, October 2009. Because of prosecutorial misconduct in Nevada,...

    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...

    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...

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,...
