Bannon: Comey Firing Biggest Recent Political Mistake

The latest was two-term Rep. Dave Trott of Michigan who said in a statement Monday that he'd decided after careful consideration that the best course for him was to spend more time with his family and return to the private sector

Bannon tells Rose that failure to support Trump through the scandal cost him a Cabinet position.

Here are the three most important takeaways from the interview.

There is no love lost between the CEO of Breitbart and the establishment Republicans - like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, both of whom have been viciously attacked by the far-right media mogul.

As Bannon admitted, Trump quickly realized that in order for the executive branch to function, they would have to rely on people with experience.

Obamacare: "The very first meetings we had with the Republican establishment, here was the plan that was laid out". In fact, the former White House aide told "60 Minutes" he wants to see Dreamers "self deport". When pressed on who he was referring to, Bannon was quick to name names.

And Bannon said, "If you're saying that's associated with me, then I'll leave it at that". "They're idiots, and they've gotten us in this situation, and they question a good man like Donald Trump".

Bannon largely cheered on Donald Trump, though he conceded that an early mistake was embracing "the establishment".

"We would not have the Mueller investigation, we would not have a Mueller investigation in the breadth that clearly Mr. Mueller is going in", Bannon argued. "That's what has been in America and you seem to want to turn it around and stop it". "So I think we'll do it in the House". But at the top of his list is the GOP establishment. "Everybody says she's so smart, so much smarter than Donald Trump".

Stephen Bannon talks to CBS' 60 Minutes in an interview broadcast on September 10, 2017.

Everyone knows how their last meeting ended. "Run The Table" became a kind of legendary catch phrase in Green Bay in 2016. Next week, Seattle hosts San Francisco (0-1) while Green Bay has an NFC Championship Game rematch at Atlanta (1-0).

Bannon also discusses the fallout after the "Access Hollywood" tape leaked just weeks before the election.

Bannon said he will hold them accountable if they don't support Trump.

"I told him, 'The plane leaves at 11:00 in the morning". If you make the plane, you make the team.

Joshua Green's book "Devil's Bargain", about Bannon's role in Trump's surprise victory, noted that Bannon warned the President about backlash to come from Comey's firing.

He also didn't mince words when he was asked to comment on the criticism that Trump receives on national security from members of his own party. "You have 100 percent probability of winning".

Bannon, 63, who became head of Trump's insurgent campaign in August past year, acknowledged that there was an attempt to make peace with the party hierarchy. "If you find it unacceptable, you should resign".

But the President contradicted that explanation days later in an interview with NBC News, in which he said he had made up his mind to fire Comey before receiving Rosenstein's recommendation and that his decision had been made with the FBI's Russian Federation investigation weighing on his mind.

The Trump administration announced that it would rescind DACA, which protects undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as minors from deportation, in six months. In their conversation, Bannon weighed in on some controversial decisions that were made while he was still serving in the White House - decisions with which he did not agree.
