Steve Bannon to Step Down From Breitbart News

Steve Bannon to Step Down From Breitbart News

Former White House top strategist Steve Bannon on Sunday appeared to try to bury the hatchet in his ongoing feud with President Trump that erupted over recent comments he made in an explosive new book, saying his support for the president is "unwavering".

"Donald Trump set fire to the Hindenburg and once told me on the record that he enjoyed the movie 'Suicide Squad.' See you in court", Colbert added. Mercer's daughter, Rebekah, is a minority stakeholder in Breitbart News and recently said, "my family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements".

Bannon said he was "proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform". The controversy ensued following the release of a book that featured Bannon criticizing the president and two of his children.

Bannon has agreed to an interview with the committee, which is investigating Russia's election meddling and links to the Trump campaign.

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. But some Trump allies hope the president will permanently cut off his former strategist, and the fate of Bannon's insurgency against the Republican establishment is now in doubt.

In the Alabama senate race last December, Bannon backed conservative candidate Roy Moore, who ultimately lost to his liberal rival, Doug Jones.

His ties with Trump were already strained after he was forced from his White House job last summer and frayed completely this month when a new book quoted Bannon as describing a controversial Trump campaign meeting with a Kremlin-tied lawyer in June 2016 as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

Days after a blistering book took shots at his administration, Trump renewed his call for a federal libel law to punish writers and broadcasters behind fake news and lies.
