Steve Bannon Turns to Quinn Emanuel's Burck Amid Russia Probe

Steve Bannon has stepped down from Breitbart the far-right website he returned to over the summer as executive chairman after being ousted from the White House

With his wounds still fresh after a vicious falling-out with President Donald Trump, former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon is expected to testify behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, according to a source with knowledge of the schedule.

"What did we have?" Jarvanka, as the married couple of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are collectively referred to in some circles, never could stand the sight of the dishevelled Mr. Bannon, much less the influence he had over Ms. Trump's father.

US President Donald Trump today told his Cabinet colleagues that his administration is going to take a strong look at the countrys libel laws, which he said are a "disgrace" and do not represent American values.

After the publication by Business Insider, Michelle Goldberg of The New York Times tweeted the page. The comments appeared in author Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", published last week.

They wouldn't cease and desist, so now President Trump is targeting libel laws in an effort to silence his critics.

His departure from Breitbart threatens to further isolate the self-proclaimed champion of anti-Washington populism that swept Trump to power and whom Bloomberg once called "the most risky political operative in America". Mercer's daughter, Rebekah, is a minority stakeholder in Breitbart News and recently said, "my family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements".

Nuclear Deal, Failure for Iran: Senior Official
It is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear programme in check and under close surveillance. If that happens, Iran has said it would no longer be bound by the pact and could return to producing enriched uranium.

On Monday, deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Bannon's apology did not alter his standing with the president.

Britain's The Guardian newspaper on Wednesday first revealed that Bannon, quoted from excerpts of the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", described the 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between a Russian lawyer and Trump's son and son-in-law as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

According to the testimony of Fusion GPS head Glenn Simpson, an associate of Mr Trump expressed concerns to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about contacts between Russian Federation and Mr Trump's presidential election campaign team, helping to trigger the probe into possible collusion.

The flaws, dubbed Meltdown and Spectre , flow from designs that allowed computers to operate more quickly and efficiently. The vehicle has 12 cameras, radars, laser scanners and computing technologies from Mobileye and Intel .

The catalyst for this freaky bombshell is a recently released insider book on Mr. Trump and his administration by free-lance writer Michael Wolff.
