(National Sentinel) Swamp: Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon believes that Republican leaders in Congress are helping Democrats nullify President Donald J. Trump’s victory by allowing what he believes are politically motivated investigations against him to continue.
“The nullification of this election, I don’t think is coming from the Left,” Bannon told Charlie Rose in an interview that was released in full Tuesday night.
Portions of the interview aired on “60 Minutes” on Sunday, which included Bannon saying he does not think that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconson want the president’s “populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented.”
In the full interview, Bannon said, “Not only do you have a special prosecutor and the Justice Department and a couple of grand juries. You have on Capitol Hill … with Republican leadership, you have three separate committees.
“You have, I think, two in the Senate and one in the House,” Bannon said in reference to the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees and the House Intelligence Committee. “And they are investigating him and sending out subpoenas, and they’ve had some big breaks already.”
As noted by The Daily Caller:
The House Intelligence Committee has received a cache of documents from the Trump Organization, the Senate Judiciary Committee has questioned Donald Trump Jr, and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“Principally the Republican leadership has allowed three committees to go and principally be run by Democrats,” Bannon said.
“I think [California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff] is running the House committee … looks like [Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner] is running the Senate committee and not [Republican North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr].”
