What Comes Next For Bannon And Breitbart

Axios’ Jonathan Swan says Steve Bannon committed “political suicide” and he leaves a major void at Breitbart in his wake. Steve Bannon’s political foes are eager to write his obituary now that he’s feuding with his former boss, President Donald Trump.

The immediate cause of the divorce wasn’t over ideas, but a more personal betrayal: Bannon’s assertion that members of the president’s inner circle, include son Donald Trump Jr. and son-in-law Jared Kushner, were guilty of “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” acts by meeting with Russian officials during the campaign. These words, revealed in reporter Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury, led the president to issue a statement saying Bannon had “lost his mind.”
