Steve Bannon predicts Mueller is ‘going to crack Don Junior like an egg’ in Russia probe

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting in 2016 between Donald Trump Jr. and a group of Russians as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic,” according to an upcoming book cited in a report Wednesday.

Mr. Bannon told author Michael Wolff that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion with Moscow will focus on money laundering and predicted: “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.”

The account is from the book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” to be released next week. The Guardian said it has seen a copy of the book.

        No, not yet.
        I just remember all the bad reporting that seems to occur when the subject is Donald Trump.
        Whats being reported and whats actually said in the book by Steve Bannon, might just be worlds apart.

    The president replied in his inimitable fashion, “Not only did Bannon lose his job in the White House, he lost his mind.”

    Is this more fake news?

      We’ll see in two weeks I guess.

    Trump retaliated furiously, probably because Bannon attacked his family.
    On the other hand, if you put your family members in positions of power, try to be objective when they are criticized.
    One thing is certain: the Left is jubilating.

    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. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.

    Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans. Steve doesn’t represent my base—he’s only in it for himself.

    Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.

    We have many great Republican members of Congress and candidates who are very supportive of the Make America Great Again agenda. Like me, they love the United States of America and are helping to finally take our country back and build it up, rather than simply seeking to burn it all down.

    The source is Michael Wolff. Assume the quotations are fabricated.

      If that quotation is fabricated then Wolff’s credibility is gone-ski. Not something an author about to publish would want to do.

  • deplorabledave

    Does all of this come from a trashy novel reviewed by the new yawk slimes?

    Trump has effectively taken over the Republican Party now, especially since tax reform passed. The Never Trumpers in the party have left or are leaving and the rest are falling into line. Steve Bannon fighting the Republicans is now going against The Trump Party, and The Donald won’t stand for that. Bye bye Bannon.
