    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon called the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer purportedly offering damaging information about Hillary Clinton "treasonous," according to a new book obtained by The Guardian.

    The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff, is based on hundreds of interviews, including ones with President Donald Trump and his inner circle. According to the Guardian, Bannon addressed the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian operatives that was arranged when Trump Jr. agreed to meet a "Russian government attorney" after receiving an email offering him "very high level and sensitive information" that would "incriminate" Clinton.

    "The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor -- with no lawyers. They didn't have any lawyers," Bannon continued, according to the Guardian. "Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately."

    It's the perfect trashy book about our perfectly trashy president. Of course the White House is responding with guns blazing.

    “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” Trump said. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”

    “This book is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a subsequent statement. “Participating in a book that can only be described as trashy tabloid fiction exposes their sad, desperate attempts at relevancy.”

    Trump’s tone on Wednesday stood in stark contrast to his reaction after Bannon’s departure from the White House.

    "I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service. He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton - it was great! Thanks S” he tweeted at the time.

    Bannon remained in Trump’s orbit. The president and his former top strategist spoke over the phone several times about the Senate races and the Russia investigation.

    icon_lol.gificon_lol.gifMajor hissy fit between Trumpy and Bannon -- so sad that these wonderful people can't get along! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Notice that in Trump's long, long statement on Bannon's betrayal, Trump did NOT deny that the meeting took place and was in fact treasonous, exactly as Bannon described. Instead, Trump merely threw personal insults at Bannon.

    One of the reasons that this is seriously bad news for the Trump crime family is that Bannon is part of Mueller's investigation, and is set to be interviewed by Mueller's people (if he hasn't already been). Today's bombshell means Bannon will do nothing to protect Trump from Mueller and will spill the beans about all the illegal activities he witnessed.

    icon_lol.gifHahaha! If only Trumpy could bribe his way out of this one, but it's much too late for that now. He's also much too cheap to fork over that kind of loot. icon_lol.gif

    On the Russia investigation. "They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV."

    the Trump Tower meeting:"The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor — with no lawyers. They didn't have any lawyers. Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s--t, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately."

    where they should have met instead: A Holiday Inn in Manchester, New Hampshire."

    where the Trump team could have "dump[ed]...down" information: Breitbart or something like that, or maybe some other more legitimate publication."

    where Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is headed: This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f--king Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr., and Jared Kushner ... It's as plain as a hair on your face."

    how they're going to get there:“It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner s--t. The Kushner s--t is greasy. They're going to go right through that. They're going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.”

    the Trump team's chances to escape Mueller's probe: They're sitting on a beach trying to stop a Category Five."

    I've come to really dislike Trump's chief of staff; things have gotten much too quiet with him there. But this is more like the good old days when every day I'd wake up to yet another bombshell from the bozo BLOTUS in the White House.   icon_lol.gif
