Bannon Hires Quinn Emanuel Atty For House Russia Probe

Bannon Hires Quinn Emanuel Atty For House Russia Probe

The White House has been lobbying aggressively to maintain the authority, against a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers - conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats - who say the act compromises civil liberties.

The departure marks an incredible fall from grace for Mr Bannon, who resigned from his post as chief White House strategist just months ago after rumours of in-fighting within the West Wing.

Burck also said the representation only pertains to the Republican-led House investigation, and not special counsel Robert Mueller's independent probe.

The committee is probing possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether the Trump campaign was involved.

Second: Bannon and Trump have had a very painful falling out.

"White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also slapped Wolff's book, accusing that it is "filled with false and misleading accounts", noting that Trump felt "furious" and" disgusted" about Bannon's comments in the book.

In the book, Bannon is quoted as saying a pre-election meeting involving Trump's eldest son Donald Jr. and a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer was "treasonous".

Mr Trump and Mr Bannon have had a long and turbulent history. He stepped down from the company Tuesday, under pressure. One fired campaign aide, Sam Nunberg, is quoted as saying he was assigned to tutor Mr. Trump on the Constitution.

Burck confirmed to Law360 on Thursday that he is representing Bannon.

"I think that if there's credible information that Ivanka Trump had with any of the participants in that meeting at the time of that meeting, she should be brought in", he said.

Bannon attempted to walk back from the remarks, telling the Axios news website that "Donald Trump Jr.is both a patriot and a good man", but the closest he came to an apology was regretting the timing of his response.

As a new year gets started, there are already more than enough reasons to worry about the state of the union in the era of Donald J. Trump and his merry band of confusion-spinners.
