(National Sentinel)Â MIA Mea Culpa:Â Breitbart News chief and former presidential political strategist Steve Bannon on Sunday issued a full statement of support for President Donald J. Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., following massive fall-out over comments he allegedly made to author Michael Wolff for his new book.
Bannon had come under fire from the president and his son over comments he allegedly made to Wolff for his new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
Several critics have questioned the veracity of Wolff’s accounts after he himself said in an author’s note contained within the book that he could not verify everything he wrote.
That said, observers note that Bannon’s mea culpa suggests his comments were accurate.
Among other things, Wolff quoted former top Trump political strategist Steve Bannon as saying that Donald Trump Jr.â€™s meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in June 2016 as being treasonous.
He also predicted that special counsel Robert Muellerâ€™s ongoing investigation is focusing on â€œmoney launderingâ€ involving former campaign manager Paul Manafort, Don Jr., and Kushner.
“This was a smart move for Steve Bannon,”Â The Gateway PunditÂ noted. “Everyone knew the comments in ‘Fire and Fury’ were taken out of context. And everyone knows Donald Trump Jr. is a patriot.
“The statement was clear, not too soft and keeps Steve Bannon in place as a top voice for the #MAGA movement,” the site noted further.
