Steve Bannon to Step Down From Breitbart News

Bannon to exit Breitbart News Network after break with Trump

"Two sources tell us Burck is helping Bannon prepare for an interview with the House intelligence committee, which is now scheduled for next week", writes the Daily Beast.

Although Bannon has managed to avoid questioning by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, he has gone on-record criticizing the Trump team's handling of the Russian Federation investigation.

Bannon was chief executive of the Trump campaign in its final three months during the 2016 USA elections.

Inside the White House, Bannon was viewed as the keeper of Trump's nationalistic flame, charting the progress on the president's promises to his base on dry erase boards in his office. Loss of his media perch jeopardizes Bannon's campaign to remake the Republican Party by fielding Trump-allied candidates to challenge incumbent lawmakers. He called Trump Jr. a "patriot".

The move comes as he continues to suffer the fallout from Michael Wolff's explosive book, Fire and Fury, in which Bannon harshly disparaged several members of the president's inner circle, including Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner.

After the book's publication, Bannon expressed regret about his statements, saying said his criticism was aimed at Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman who also attended the meeting. After being fired by Mr. Trump, Mr. Bannon returned to his old job running the alt-right Breitbart News website, which formerly was a conspicuous cheerleader for the president. Thirty-five percent said they did not know or had no opinion.

In a separate tweet Wednesday morning, Trump accused Democratic Sen.

A day earlier, Feinstein, who faces a primary challenge in her re-election this year, released the transcript of the Senate Judiciary Committee's closed-door August interview with an official from the political opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the dossier.

The House Intelligence Committee is one of three congressional panels investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and links to the Trump campaign.
