CNN has published a bombshell report on Steve Bannon and President Trump. According to the report, Trump’s former chief strategist and adviser teamed up with a conservative group in 2015 to link President Trump to mobsters in an attempt to undermine his campaign. According to rumors Bannon still has the documents related to it and it is really a danger to President Trump.
The opposition research was developed by the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), which Bannon co-founded with Peter Schweitzer in 2012.
Schweizer told CNN, the document reportedly details years of alleged deals between Trump companies and figures in organized crime.
“We research political figures from all political parties and our basic premise is follow the money. That’s what guides our research approach,”
However Bannon declined CNN’s request for comment.
Trump slammed Bannon as having “lost his mind” after comments Bannon made about Donald Trump Jr. in a book about Trump’s White House first emerged.
Bannon is quoted in Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” as calling Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer “treasonous.”
“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Bannon said.
But later Bannon released a statement calling Trump Jr. a “patriot” and a “good man” on Sunday.
However, the White House rejected Bannon’s apology on Monday. White House spokesperson said there is no going back on Steve Bannon and he has done enough damage to the administration. President Trump repeatedly insulted Bannon by calling him “sloppy Steve” and even compared him with an abandoned Dog.
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters, “I just don’t think there’s any way back at this point,” .
