Steve Bannon: Firing James Comey Was Biggest Mistake in Modern Political History

Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer

The news comes as Bannon claimed "the Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election" in an interview that aired on "60 Minutes" Sunday night. "This is gonna take 10, 15, 20 years of relentlessly going after it", Bannon told Rose. "All you had to do, and what he did, was go out and continue to talk to the American people".

Flynn allegedly suggested to ambassador Sergey Kislyak that sanctions on Russian Federation imposed by President Barack Obama as punishment for the Kremlin's inteference in the 2016 election could be lifted.

According to a report in The Washington Post last week Mueller also intends to interview key Trump aides, including former press secretary Sean Spicer, former chief of staff Reince Priebus and interim communications director Hope Hicks. When pressed on who he was referring to, Bannon was quick to name names.

Bannon tells Rose that current Republican leadership - namely Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan - are trying to undermine President Trump's political agenda.

The former Trump campaign chairman, who has returned to his position at the helm of right-wing website Breitbart News, added that "every nationality, every race, every religion, every sexual preference" is welcome in this "populist economic nationalist movement" as long as they're an American citizen. "That's a brutal fact we have to face", Bannon said. You can call me anything you want. OK? We embraced the establishment. "Donald Trump has a grasp on what's important and what's marginalia".

Later in the interview, Bannon noted that the Republican establishment insisted on doing a repeal and replacement of Obamacare as the first order of business in the Trump administration. He called the Access Hollywood tapes a "litmus test" because it showed who really supported Trump.

Trump lawyer's wife arrested after allegedly having sex with inmate
Teresa Jo Burchfield , 53, was arrested Tuesday after allegedly having sex with an inmate outside a detention center. Attempts to contact Teresa Burchfield and Bobby Burchfield were not immediately successful Thursday morning.

Bannon also said that Gary Cohn, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs who was then appointed to Trump's chief economic advisor, should have resigned after publicly disagreeing with President Trump's comments on the racially-charged protests in Charlottesville, Virginia in August that left a woman dead and 19 other people injured.

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

"They're idiots, and they've gotten us in this situation, and they question a good man like Donald Trump", Bannon said. "You have 100 percent probability of winning". He related a story of how in one of his first meetings with President Trump, Senator McConnell made it abundantly clear that he is adamantly opposed to any effort to reduce the establishment's power in Washington D.C. "If you find it unacceptable, you should resign".

Comey's firing has sparked Mueller's far-ranging investigation, including whether or not Trump obstructed justice by firing the head of the FBI amid its investigation into Russian meddling in the election and ties to the Trump campaign.

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.
