'Fire and Fury' author feels bad about Steve Bannon's 'difficult situation'

Charlie Simmons | 12 January, 2018, 03:35

Trump, of course, prevailed in the election, and he landed on the cover of the November 22, 2016, issue of Time as "president-elect" and again in December of that year, when Time magazine declared him "president of the divided states of America" in naming him "Person of the Year".

Colbert, whose show will air live after the president's State of the Union speech on January 30, noted how Trump was still fuming over the allegations in Wolff's book.

Have you been in touch with Steve Bannon since the book's launch?

The House Intelligence Committee is one of three congressional panels investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and links to the Trump campaign.

Stephen Bannon, President Donald Trump's chief strategist, has faced criticism for his background overseeing Breitbart News, with Democrats touting numerous racially tinged and misogynistic headlines that went up under his watch.

Historian and author Randall Hansen is a lucky man: The title of one of his books is nearly exactly the same as another that recently became very, very well-known. Quite the opposite. Anybody who's spending time around the White House knows a lot of what I know.

Bannon was reportedly forced out by GOP mega-donor Rebekah Mercer, a Trump supporter who owns a large stake in Breitbart. NBC devoted 44 minutes and 3 seconds to the Wolff and Bannon topics.

"I'm the reason he's out", Wolff said.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said she visits the White House once a week, and "no one questions the stability of the president".

"We would speak. I'm sure he didn't think they were interviews", Wolff said of his conversation with Trump.

CNN has not independently verified all the assertions in Wolff's book.

Trump, who threatened legal action to stop publication, has dismissed the book as a "work of fiction" that's "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist".

"This book is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote in a statement.

"So then you had to go and speak to another person and that became a kind of thing, give me your version of this story", Wolff said. I've just written a book. 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".
