A year ago, the Trump administration’s coalition of scheming Heritage Foundation party hacks, far-right extremists, and former Apprentice contestants stood poised to take the nation by storm and reshape it in their own twisted image.
But as the anniversary of the President’s inauguration draws near, the constant infighting and inevitable backstabbing is poised to bring the whole thing crumbling around them – and Special Counsel Mueller is driving the wrecking ball.
Disgraced White House chief strategist, former Breitbart editor, and deranged white supremacist Steven K. Bannon has procured himself a lawyer and is ready to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s team in their investigation into the Trump campaign and their alleged collusion with agents of the Russian Federation.
The Daily Beast is reporting that “two sources tell us [Bill] Burck is helping Bannon prepare for an interview with the House intelligence committee, which is currently scheduled for next week. Sources also said Bannon plans to ‘fully cooperate’ with investigators.”
The move appears to be in retaliation for the President’s role in having him fired from Breitbart and his Sirius XM radio show, which Trump did in revenge for the embarrassing comments made by Bannon to author Michael Wolff in his explosive Fire and Fury: Inside the White House behind-the-scenes tell-all.
Seeing as Bannon already intimated that he knew Donald Jr. had wandered into “treasonous” territory and that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner’s “greasy” business deals were going to “roll them all up,” it’s clear that he knows the Trump goose is well and cooked.
If President Deals had an iota of strategic sense – or really, any functioning impulses beyond the uncontrollable knee-jerk lashing out at anything that displeases him – he might have considered that there might be potential consequences of spurning one of his campaign’s closest insiders.
Perhaps it might be dawning on the President that surrounding himself with a host of self-entitled and unrepentantly selfish grifters and extremists would come back to bite him one day.
But seeing as he voiced his opposition to a domestic surveillance bill because the television literally told him to do it, it’s clear the president isn’t doing a whole lot of thinking for himself these days.
