Witcover: The Trump-Bannon explosion

Witcover: The Trump-Bannon explosion

After days of silence amid withering criticism from his former colleagues and his largest benefactor, Bannon tried to make amends.

Burck also said the representation only pertains to the Republican-led House investigation, and not special counsel Robert Mueller's independent probe.

The catalyst for this freaky bombshell is a recently released insider book on Mr. Trump and his administration by free-lance writer Michael Wolff.

President Donald Trump Trump responded at the time by slamming Bannon in a fiery statement, saying Bannon had "lost his mind". How far back is anyone's guess, but it will depend in part on whether Trump gets too cozy with the Republican establishment in Washington and the GOP base becomes disenchanted with the president and begins to think more highly again of Bannon.

He quickly presided over the brand of economic populism promoted by Trump and was hired as chief strategist for the White House.

"Steve had nothing to do with my win, or certainly very little", he said.

The poll was taken before Bannon was sacked from Breitbart.

Mr Trump and Mr Bannon have had a long and turbulent history. He left the White House just four months later, but by then Mr Ailes had died.

"I'm not saying I have or haven't", Trump said.

Burck confirmed to Law360 on Thursday that he is representing Bannon.

"For Walsh", Mr. Wolff writes, "it was a daily process of managing an impossible task: nearly as soon as she received direction from one of the three men, she would be countermanded by one of another of them". "Donald Trump, Jr.is both a patriot and a good man". The leading national reporters covering the White House, including at least one who still supports Trump, are arguing whether Trump was a moron (as stated by his secretary of state) or was "only" suffering a mental disorder that has now grown much worse.

Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mueller's team.
