Steve Bannon just declared war on Trump by putting an end to his biggest Russia lie

Author and journalist Michael Wolff has penned an explosive new book that threatens to blow the roof off the roach’s nest that is the Trump White House, revealing all the nasty decay and insects writhing within. Excerpts are already starting to emerge, and they’re incredibly damning.

In an interview with Steve Bannon, the former White House Chief Strategist and Breitbart hatemonger told Wolff that Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya and several other Russians in Trump Tower was “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”  Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort also attended the meeting, with the Trumpists there for the explicit reason of obtaining dirt on Hillary Clinton.

“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” he added, referencing the ongoing investigation into collusion between the Trump Team and Russia.

The Trump team has claimed that then-candidate Trump didn’t attend the meeting or know about it at the time, but now even that seems to be a lie.

In the book, Bannon reveals that there was “zero chance” that Donald Trump Jr. didn’t immediately introduce his father (who was in the Tower at the time) to the Russian surrogates after the meeting.

If true, it means Trump met with the Russians, perhaps to discuss the possibility of the lifting of sanctions in return for Clinton dirt, an act that could quite possibly constitute a conspiracy against the United States.

Peter Alexander of NBC News tweeted out excerpts from Wolff’s book:

There is some confusion over what a “Jumo” is, with some Twitter users suggesting that Bannon meant jamoke,  an antiquated word to mean someone stupid, or perhaps it stands for Junior Moscow Operative. Whatever obscure slang or slur the word is, it’s clearly dismissive given the context. Bannon lumps Donald Junior and the Russians in together as one big group of bumbling idiots.

Bannon has officially declared war on every member of the Trump White House. The rats are eating each other alive, and the whole truth is finally close to being fully exposed. It’s time to kick these traitors out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue once and for all.
