With conflicting stories coming out of the White House over President Donald Trump senior adviser Steve Bannon being booted from the National Security Council, a Fox News White House correspondent claims Trump had problems with Bannon overshadowing him.
According to John Roberts of Fox News, Trump has not been entirely happy with his political guru Bannon.
“We are also told that maybe the President was not particularly happy at the way Bannon had been grabbing the limelight,” Roberts reported before adding, “That may have played into all of this.”
Earlier in the day the son of former national security adviser Michael Flynn called the Bannon ouster a power play by the man who replaced his dad, tweeting, “Fact 1: Flynn/Bannon most loyal to DJT (both out at NSC),” he wrote on Twitter. “Fact 2: McMaster wont say ‘Radical Islam.’”

‘Donald Trump is toast’: Ex-Watergate prosecutor predicts Sondland’s testimony dooms the president
Former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman on Monday made the case that President Donald Trump simply doesn't have a legal leg to stand on given the substantial body of evidence lined up against him.
While appearing on CNN, Akerman was asked what he believed that European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland would tell Congress this week after he had already been forced to revise previous testimony that turned out to be false.
"I don't think he's got much of a choice, it seems like that and those text messages, the evidence here is overwhelming," Akerman said. "If he wants to avoid winding up in prison like Roger Stone, he's got to come clean."
Speaker Nancy Pelosi tells colleagues why the GOP’s arguments to support Trump are ‘weak’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a "dear colleague" letter to members of Congress calling the Republican Party's justification for President Donald Trump's actions "weak."
"The facts are uncontested: that the President abused his power for his own personal, political benefit, at the expense of our national security interests," Pelosi wrote.
"The weak response to these hearings has been 'Let the election decide.' That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections," she continued.
Monday morning, Trump tweeted a quote from a Democratic member of Congress who claimed on Fox News that impeachment should be disbanded because it is dividing the country.
Early Mozart minuets sell for 372,500 euros at Paris auction
An original score of two minuets composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart when he was just 16 blew past estimates at a Sotheby's auction in Paris on Monday, going under the hammer for 372,500 euros ($413,000).
It was nearly double the top estimated value of 200,000 euros set for the handwritten score dating from 1772, and which formed part of the extensive music collection of a fellow Austrian, the writer Stefan Zweig.
The unpublished, autographed score of the minuets -- a stylised dance -- contains a few corrections and minor modifications, including one or two that might be in the hand of Mozart's father, Leopold.
