Remember those stories a few months back on how Steve Bannon was on his way out of the Trump administration.
Well, Steve’s still there and stronger than ever.
Bannon’s take no prisoner style served Donald Trump well in the campaign and may well serve him well in the upcoming pushback against claims of collusion with the Russians.
Bannon was with the President during the first part of his trip abroad last week but left early to return to Washington to prepare for the upcoming offensive.
According to Fox News Bannon has been put in charge of the team defending Trump’s administration against any charges.
Their mission: Respond, rebut and refute bad press and legal issues emanating from the special counsel probe led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller into Russian influence on the 2016 election.
