Bannon hires Washington lawyer to represent him before House Committee

Bannon hires Washington lawyer to represent him before House Committee

"We're going to take a very, very strong look at that".

Bannon's spectacular downfall is a significant setback and part of a larger pattern of reversals for Breitbart and the other far-right and fascist-tinged big business forces he represents.

The book also caused a dramatic falling out between Trump and his former adviser Stephen Bannon, who was quoted speaking ill of members of the president's family.

Bannon was working as Trump's chief strategist when the president fired FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyTrump: Dershowitz interview on "witch hunt" a "must watch" Comey after Trump tweet: FBI is honest, strong, independent Former ethics director: Trump's tweet on Flynn would have ended past administrations MORE previous year.

"My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama", added Bannon, who returned to the news website after leaving the White House last August.

Bannon stepped down as chairman of the Breitbart News Network Wednesday after a public break with President Donald Trump.

Pressed by Newsmax to state whether he meant states should re-examine their libel laws, Sanders told us: "I think he was speaking, generally, libel laws should be looked into". Thirty-five percent said they did not know or had no opinion.

The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out. But the scandals persecute Trump, and this debate was joined by the controversial tweet in which he claimed that the button for the launch of nuclear missiles in his office is much more powerful than the one claimed to have by the leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Kim Jong Un. Politico reported earlier on Thursday that Bannon had hired a lawyer to deal with the probe by the House Intelligence Committee. Chuck Grassley. She is the top Democrat on the panel.

It comes just as Mr. Trump is frantically seeking to stabilize a presidency besieged by internal chaos and to cope with his own Justice Department's investigation into his campaign's possible collusion with Russian agents meddling in the 2016 election.
