Last Friday Bannon boldly declared: “I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents… on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.”
But, according to a new note from Vanity Fair, that “war” could end up ensnaring the President himself should he decide to succumb to what Bannon views as intense internal White House pressure, from the likes of Jared Kushner, Ivanka and Gary Cohn, among others, to move to the Left on key policy issues.
Quoting editor Matt Boyle, Vanity Fair reports that Breitbart views itself as the key reason that the Russia scandal hasn’t gained traction on the right but that they are “prepared to help Paul Ryan rally votes for impeachment” should future Trump policies deviate too far to the Left.
‘We’re in a loud bar celebrating the return of our captain!’ Breitbart’s Washington editor Matt Boyle told me on Friday night. Breitbart’s defense of Trump has so far helped keep the Russia scandal from gaining traction on the right. But that could swiftly change if Trump, under the influence of Kushner and Cohn, deviates too far from the positions he ran on. If that happens, said one high-level Breitbart staffer, ‘We’re prepared to help Paul Ryan rally votes for impeachment.’
