Trump strategist Steve Bannon says "Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russian operatives in Trump Tower was treasonous and unpatriotic." The meeting included Trump's indicted campaign manager Steve Manafort and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Bannon says "there is zero chance that Trump Jr. didn't walk the Russians attendees up to his father's apartment on the 26th floor to meet with the president."
The Guardian published excerpts of Steve Bannon's new book in which he predicts Special Counsel Robert Mueller will “crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV” over the president’s son’s meeting with the Russians at Trump Tower in June 2016.
In response, Donald Trump released this statement, "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind."
In spite of Trump's attack on Bannon, Steve says he will continue working outside of the White House to assist Trump's work as President.
Steve Bannon has urged his Senate candidate Roy Moore to concede the Senate race now that Doug Jones has been sworn into the Senate. But Bannon warns, "Moore is just one of more than fifty candidates who will run against incumbent Republicans in Congress with the help of Breitbart News. The existing Republican Party is finished."
