Wolff: I don't 'feel good about' Bannon's ouster from Breitbart

Wolff: I don't 'feel good about' Bannon's ouster from Breitbart

In response to Bannon's having called a June 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians "treasonous" and "unpatriotic", Trump said in a statement that his former colleague had "lost his mind".

He will not act for Bannon regarding his work for Trump in the transition period or his time at the White House.

Steve Bannon, who has been cast out of 's circle and lost his job running Breitbart news, has hired a lawyer as he prepares to face House Intelligence Committee investigators.

Bannon's appearance before the intelligence committee is magnified by comments attributed to him in the newly released book "Fire and Fury" by Michael Wolff about the Trump White House. The leading national reporters covering the White House, including at least one who still supports Trump, are arguing whether Trump was a moron (as stated by his secretary of state) or was "only" suffering a mental disorder that has now grown much worse.

Separately, Representative Adam Schiff, the panel's top Democrat, told reporters on Thursday he would like "dozens" more witnesses, including Bannon, to appear before the committee, making clear he does not view its investigation of Russian Federation and the election as near its end. He was pushed out after less than eight months after numerous conflicts with Ivanka Trump, the president's elder daughter, and Jared Kushner, her husband and Mr. Trump's senior adviser.

Trump replied to Bannon's comments with fury, saying "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind".

According to the story, Ms. Trump might have bumped into the participants as they left the meeting - which special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating.

Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mueller's team.

In a separate tweet Wednesday morning, Trump accused Democratic Sen.

An aide to Republican Representative Devin Nunes, the committee's chairman, declined comment.

Trump thinks Oprah won't run, says he'd defeat her anyway
A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University gave Winfrey a 52% favourable rating compared to Trump's then 41% job approval rating. American voters are big fans of Oprah Winfrey --but asked 10 months ago, most didn't want her to run for President.
