Steve Bannon Out At Breitbart

Donald Trump slammed the current US libel laws as

"It certainly wasn't something I expected, and it's certainly not something I feel good about", Wolff said on ABC's "The View" when asked if Bannon's leaving was a direct result of the book's publication.

Updated | Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's embattled former chief strategist, has agreed to an interview with the House Intelligence Committee as part of its probe into Russia's election meddling and links to the Trump campaign, according to one source close to the committee and a second source with knowledge of the matter. John TrumpTrump files paperwork to transfer businesses MORE, and a Russian attorney in Trump Tower was "treasonous". He's called Trump a great man. After those reports began to surface, Mr Bannon quickly lost his support from the President, and - perhaps even more damaging - from the billionaire Mercer family as well, which had bankrolled Mr Bannon's efforts at Breitbart. Bannon did not apologize for his criticism of the president's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, with whom he had squabbled inside the West Wing.

"Bannon and others who "know too much" can be unsafe to a president with a few too many secrets", she wrote.

On Thursday, the House Intelligence committee's top Democrat, Adam Schiff, told reporters at the Capitol that Ms. Trump should appear before the panel, which he said still needs to interview "dozens" of witnesses to ensure "a complete job" of investigating alleged s between the Trump campaign and Kremlin-connected figures. "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Trump said.

Mr Bannon could attempt to start a new venture without Mr Ailes or perhaps go back to making documentaries. Trump and his minions have slammed him publicly and repeatedly, giving Bannon no practical reason to take one for the chief anymore. But if he was damaged by the electoral defeat of his preferred candidate, Roy Moore, in Alabama, his fall from grace was cemented by Fire and Fury.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders last Thursday said Breitbart should "look at and consider" cutting ties with Mr Bannon.
