READER BE ADVISED, you can chalk this one up as fake news on Varity Fair’s part, or a leak from the staff at Breitbart.
A high-level staffer at Breitbart News said the conservative news organization is more than willing to aid Speaker Paul Ryan in impeaching President Donald J. Trump should the president fail to deliver on his campaign promises.
“We’re prepared to help Paul Ryan rally votes for impeachment,” the unidentified staffer told Vanity Fair in an article published late Sunday.
On Friday, Bannon announced he would be leaving the White House to return to his role atop the conservative news site. In an interview with Bloomberg, Bannon extinguished any notion Breitbart would continue to be anything other than a pro-Trump site, saying he planned to “go to war” for Trump.
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon said.
The Vanity Fair piece, titled “Bannon Plots His Revenge,” runs counter to that narrative. But again, the source is a single staffer that is unnamed in the article.
Multiple Democrats have brought up articles of impeachment against Trump, the most recent of which being Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) when he denounced the president’s comments on the racial violence in Charlottesville.
Breitbart’s beef won’t so much be with President Donald J. Trump, however, but with the people to whom he may listen to on a daily basis. Steve Bannon’s staunch nationalism has chafed with those who have been labeled as liberal globalists on the White House staff such as his son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.
According to the article, Bannon sees any ear Trump lends to their wishes as a disappointing way to pay him back for Breitbart’s keeping the Russia narrative from gaining traction on the right. And it seems if Trump alienates his most diehard supporters by losing sight of campaign promises amongst his staffers’ meddling, Breitbart will abandon him as well.
In a widely-read op-ed published by Dennis Michael Lynch on Sunday evening, the CEO of DML NEWS referred to Bannon as “the most powerful man in America.”
DML wrote, “His role is bigger now than it was when he stood at Trump’s side in the Oval Office. His new job is to lead a new movement against the mainstream media. He must spearhead the way to stop the Left. Make no mistake, Bannon knows better than anyone how determined the Left is to put an end to conservatism in America.
Right now, I deem Bannon as the most powerful man in the United States.
He has access to hundreds of millions of people at Breitbart. He has websites like mine waiting to see what he posts next. Thus, he gets indirect access to hundreds of millions of more people each month. He has access to hundreds of millions of dollars through his ties to Republican donor, Robert Mercer. And Bannon has every member of the White House, and the GOP, crapping in their pants now because he is free to speak his mind.”
