Bannon to appear before Congress committee on Russian Federation probe

Bannon to appear before Congress committee on Russian Federation probe

Bannon's decision to retain Burck comes amid speculation that he might turn on President Donald Trump in the Russian Federation probe.

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".

Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's former chief strategist, pictured here on October 23, will meet with the House Intelligence Committee.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House-which paints the president as disengaged, ill-informed and unstable-has seen Bannon abandoned by financial patrons, condemned by erstwhile allies and ridiculed by Trump himself.

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".

"Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish", Breitbart CEO Larry Solov said in a statement from the company. Bannon did not apologize for his criticism of the president's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, with whom he had squabbled inside the West Wing.

"I don't believe there is any way back for Mr Bannon at this point", Gidley told reporters on Air Force One as the president travelled to Tennessee for a speech.

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.

Republican strategist Cheri Jacobus speculated on Thursday that Bannon was planning to crush Trump in the Russian Federation probe after the president was instrumental in getting Bannon fired from Breitbart and his Sirius XM radio program, as well as convincing the wealthy Mercer family to stop funding Bannon's campaigns. "Sources also said Bannon plans to "fully cooperate" with investigators".

This was not the revolution Mr Bannon, just a year ago, may have envisioned.

"It is very obvious Mr Bannon worked with Mr Wolff in this particular book, " Gidley said, dismissing Bannon's mea culpa.

"My clients do not intend to cease publication, no such retraction will occur, and no apology is warranted", the letter reads.
