Steve Bannon departs Breitbart News

  • U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media after the Congressional Republican Leadership retreat at Camp David Maryland U.S

Among the most explosive claims Wolff makes are that Trump didn't actually want to be president, and that former advisor Steve Bannon called a meeting between Donald Trump, Jr. and Russian lawyers "treasonous".

"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.

Later Tuesday, Bannon tweeted that Breitbart "has come along way and has really just begun its mission". The split followed the release of a behind-the scenes book, Fire and Fury, in which Bannon strongly criticized members of the Trump family. "I am confident in everything that is in this book", he said.

Michael Wolff appeared Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House". Trump has called the book "untruthful" and Wolff a "total loser", while some reporters have called out apparent factual inaccuracies.

However, Bannon didn't respond until Sunday when he tried to walk back some of the comments without officially apologizing.

Eric Staal Will Represent Minnesota Wild at NHL All-Star Game
He proved to be a bargain, tallying 65 points (28 goals, 37 assists) in 2016-17, and has continued to prove himself this season. The All-Star event will consist of a skills competition (Jan. 27), followed by the three-game tournament in a 3-on-3 fashion.

But he goes on to say, in a hilariously misguided effort to discredit Wolff, that the author was indeed given access to the White House and staffers were asked to speak with him.

By contrast, Mr Bannon now seems to be striking a more conciliatory tone with the President, saying: "There was no collusion and the investigation is a witch hunt".

In a statement, Trump said Bannon has nothing to do with his presidency and has "lost his mind".

Despite being packed with political dynamite, a new book on Donald Trump won't, on its own, dislodge a president who is totally unfit to hold such a vital office.
