Steve Bannon Turns to Quinn Emanuel's Burck Amid Russia Probe

Steve Bannon Turns to Quinn Emanuel's Burck Amid Russia Probe

The website said in an announcement featured on its front page that Mr Bannon and the news website will work together "on a smooth and orderly transition".

Bannon had served as Breitbart's executive chairman since 2012. Loss of his media perch jeopardizes Bannon's campaign to remake the Republican Party by fielding Trump-allied candidates to challenge incumbent lawmakers.

He is quoted as saying that Trump Jr. committed treason by his dealing with the Russians and that Ivanka was stupid as a brick.

Inside the White House, Bannon was viewed as the keeper of Trump's nationalistic flame, charting the progress on the president's promises to his base on dry erase boards in his office.

As late as last weekend, Bannon continued to tell people that he planned to stay in charge at Breitbart and that Solov supported him.

Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's former chief strategist, pictured here on October 23, will meet with the House Intelligence Committee.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. When asked if his relationship with Bannon is permanently broken, Trump stated, "I don't know what the word permanent means". "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Trump said. "I don't believe there's any way back for Mr. Bannon at this point", Gidley said. Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is also expected to testify next week, the Daily Beast reported.

Some of Trump's fellow Republicans in Congress have been saying they expect the House Intelligence probe and other congressional investigations to wrap up quickly. Bannon has agreed to an interview with the committee, which is investigating Russia's election meddling and links to the Trump campaign.

Bannon's departure comes in the wake of the White House furor over his comments quoted in a new controversial book calling the 2016 Trump Tower meeting of U.S. President Donald Trump's eldest son with Russians "treasonous".
