Bannon hires Washington lawyer to represent him before House Committee

Bannon Taps Quinn Emanuel Lawyer Ahead of House Panel Appearance

He asserted that his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and his deputy campaign manager David Bossie deserve more credit than Bannon. Joining the White House, Mr. Bannon set the agenda for Mr. Trump in the initial weeks, as the President fired on all cylinders on his anti-immigration and anti-trade agenda.

Thanks to Trump's appointment of Neil Gorsuch, the court now has a conservative majority, but may not necessarily fall in line behind the Republican president. This, by the way, was true long before Trump became president or even before his candidacy. But one of Trump's other attorneys, Michael Cohen, filed a separate suit against BuzzFeed on Tuesday over the site's publication of the Russian Federation dossier past year.

However, before the loss in Alabama and his indelible contributions to Fire and Fury, a rift was already growing between Bannon and his major allies within the Republican establishment such as hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer.

Trump's lawyer, Charles Harder, said excerpts from the book contain "false/baseless statements" about the president and that he can prove "actual malice" in defense of a libel case.

Trump's libel law talk came after a week's worth of embarrassing stories about his troubled presidency, citing the new book "Fire and Fury". Five days later, Mr Bannon was out. Mr. Trump said in an interview that Mr. Bannon was just one of the many people who worked for him. Because Trumpism, to the extent it exists, was never about Steve Bannon, nationalism, isolationism, or for that matter about anything resembling something close to a coherent ideology or a mature worldview. "Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was".

Streisand used her Twitter account to link to a Reuters report that quoted the president as saying his administration would explore possible ways of strengthening libel laws as a result of Michael Wolff's incendiary new tell-all about Trump's first year in office. On his part, Mr. Trump, too, does not rule out a future association with Mr. Bannon.

"I know that when I write e-mails seeking interviews, my word choice is to say, I will treat the individual with dignity and respect".

The Wall Street Journal reported that the alleged encounter with Clifford took place in the year following Trump's marriage to Melania Trump.
