Bannon: ‘Why are McConnell, Ryan letting DEMS investigate TRUMP?’

(National SentinelSwamp: 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].”

Bannon: Trump not fooled by Russians, knows they’re ‘not good guys’

(National SentinelForeign Policy: Former chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon told “60 Minutes” host Charlie Rose Sunday night that President Donald J. Trump hasn’t been duped by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“He criticizes the Russians all the time. He knows the Russians are not good guys,” Bannon, now back with Breitbart News, told Rose.

He added that Trump would rather spend money fixing problems in America than pick fights abroad, especially costly fights with nuclear-armed enemies.

That said, Bannon added: “We should be focused on how we bring the Cold War to an end. I think it was President Obama’s program, $1 trillion to upgrade the nuclear arsenal. Is that what you want to do? Is that where you want to spend your money? Would you rather spend $1 trillion in Cleveland, in Baltimore, in the inner cities of this country where we need to spend it, in the heartland of this nation? And I think what he’s trying to say, in a world of anarchy, do you need another enemy?”

He said the suggestion by the legacy media and others that Trump should “criticize” Russian “stuns” him.

“What his point is, why pick another fight? We’ve got enough problems around the world,” he said.

Rose asked Bannon about the alleged Team Trump-Russia collusion, which he dismissed as “a complete and total farce.”

Asked about any intelligence he might have seen suggesting Russia interfered in the U.S. election, Bannon said he couldn’t discuss classified information. But, he noted, “I think it’s far from conclusive that the Russians had any impact on this election.”
