Wolff's book confirms early criticism of Trump, Bannon

Bannon departed the White House in August, amid a shakeup ushered by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who had replaced Reince Priebus as chief of staff a few weeks prior.

Mr Bannon has tried to make amends.

Trump himself said Wednesday that it "seems unlikely" that he'd give an interview in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

The interview will focus on Bannon's time with the Trump campaign rather than the transition period or his tenure as President Trump's chief strategist.

Mr Bardella's remark about presidential ambitions refers to a December Vanity Fair article which said a White House run "has at least been a passing thought" for Mr Bannon.

His critical comments about Mr Donald Trump's adult children, published in Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury last week, enraged the President, who declared that Mr Bannon had "lost his mind". Many were outraged that Bannon questioned President Trump's mental fitness and disparaged his elder son, Donald Trump Jr., calling his actions "treasonous".

"Steve had nothing to do with my win, or certainly very little", he said.

Bannon's departure from Breitbart came as a shock to some of his allies.

"For Walsh", Mr. Wolff writes, "it was a daily process of managing an impossible task: nearly as soon as she received direction from one of the three men, she would be countermanded by one of another of them". He called Trump Jr. a "patriot".

Wednesday night, the White House released an official statement explicitly saying that a proposed amendment that would weaken the NSA's power would undermine "the useful role FISA's Section 702 authority plays in protecting American lives". "I don't believe there's any way back for Mr. Bannon at this point", Gidley said.

Besides Bannon, he said those witnesses would include Trump's daughter Ivanka.

As a new year gets started, there are already more than enough reasons to worry about the state of the union in the era of Donald J. Trump and his merry band of confusion-spinners.
