We now know who Steve Bannon owes $2 million

Published

on

In a revised filing on Tuesday, former White House adviser and current Breitbart executive Steve Bannon admitted to owing $2 million that he failed to disclose on his government employee financial filings.

As the Center for Public Integrity reports, Bannon owes millions in home loans — three of which he owes to JP Morgan Chase and a fourth he owes to Quicken Loans.

The CPI pointed out the error in an investigation in July, which listed the debts as “HOME LOAN #1,” “HOME LOAN #2,” “HOME LOAN #3” and “HOME LOAN #4” but didn’t specify who he owed the loans to. After their investigation revealed the $2 million in mysterious loans, the White House said they would fix the error and disclose who the former adviser owed, but they failed to do so until this week — months after Bannon was fired.

As their report notes, Bannon’s financial disclosures have “been edited on seven separate occasions from May to October to add or clarify a handful of items, including formal disclosure of Bannon’s role as CEO of Trump’s campaign.” It also offers a few “minor” details about the Breitbart executive’s relationship to the Mercer family and their company, Cambridge Analytica.

President Donald Trump on Saturday signed four executive orders that may provide economic relief for some Americans as Congress remains at an impasse.

“Struggling Americans need action now. Since Democrats have sabotaged backroom talks with absurd demands that would not help working people, I support President Trump exploring his options to get unemployment benefits and other relief to the people who need them the most," McConnell said in a statement.

President Donald Trump on Saturday signed executive actions extending financial relief to Americans hit by the coronavirus pandemic as polls showed a large majority of voters unhappy with his handling of the crisis.

The four measures marked a presidential show of strength after Trump's Republican party and White House team failed to agree with opposition Democrats in Congress on a new stimulus package aimed at stopping vulnerable Americans from falling through the cracks.

"We've had it and we're going to save American jobs and provide relief to the American workers," Trump said at a press conference in his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he was spending the weekend.

Lincoln Project only needed 19 words to show 4 fatal flaws with Trump’s payroll tax holiday

President Donald Trump on Saturday signed an executive order creating a payroll tax holiday that he hopes will become permanent.

"President Trump pledged on Saturday to pursue a permanent cut to the payroll taxes that fund Social Security and Medicare if he wins reelection in November, a hard-to-accomplish political gambit that some experts see as a major headache for the future of the country’s entitlement programs," The Washington Post reports. "Trump unexpectedly promised the policy action as he signed a directive that aims to help cash-starved Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic. The order allows workers to postpone their payroll tax payments into next year but doesn’t absolve their bills outright — though the president said he would seek to waive what people owe if he prevails on Election Day."
