Steve Bannon walks back most explosive comments

"Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish", Breitbart CEO Larry Solov said in the statement, which also included a comment from Bannon. Wolff's book, released on Friday, sent shockwaves through the Trump administration with fiery quotes about the Trump family and numerous claims about the president's intelligence and competence.

"And you have not heard the last from me", he said. "They didn't have any lawyers", Wolff quoted Bannon as saying in the book.

With a tell-all book raising concerns about US President Trump's mental stability, there is a renewed question asking why the most powerful man in the world is not required to pass a thorough mental health exam.

But he goes on to say, in a hilariously misguided effort to discredit Wolff, that the author was indeed given access to the White House and staffers were asked to speak with him.

According to Wolff, Bannon said that special counsel Robert Mueller's team, which is investigating Russian interference into the 2016 election, would "crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV".

Missing college student identified as body found in Southern California park
A 19-year-old college student who went missing last week in the Foothill Ranch area of Lake Forest has been found dead. Bernstein had gone missing on January 2, just five days before he was supposed to return to Penn for the semester.

Breitbart announced Tuesday that Bannon would step down as executive chairman of the conservative news site.

In a statement, Trump said Bannon has nothing to do with his presidency and has "lost his mind".

Bannon has been abandoned by financial patrons, condemned by erstwhile political allies and ridiculed by Trump himself over his comments, which he has not denied making but has since tried to walk back.

Bannon had struggled to claw back his remarks after the book was published and the president publicly lashed out at his former adviser.
