Demolishing the White House’s choreographed twist that the Russia investigation into Donald Trump’s 2016 effort is really a hoax and that particular counsel Robert Mueller is engaged in some sort of rogue witch hunt, Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon clobbers the Oval Office team at a new book due out next week.
Specifically, Bannon cries the complete Trump team under the bus over the stunning meeting it’d at Trump Tower during 2016 with Russian operatives who specifically offered to provide incriminating information about Hillary Clinton. The confab was “treasonous” and “unpatriotic,” according to Bannon, echoing the claims of Trump’s fiercest Democratic critics.
Trump’s son Donald Jr. and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were among those who attended the collusion meeting, they later, along with preposterously, claimed had been about addressing the dilemma of Russian adoptions from the U.S.
“The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers,” said Bannon. “Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”
The quotes appear in the soon-to-be-released book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” by Michael Wolff, according to the Guardian.
