Former U.S. Attorney for the middle district of Georgia Michael Moore said on CNN that President Donald Trump’s defense that he “didn’t know Steve Bannon that well” makes things look even worse for the Trump administration.
“The thing is, with Steve Bannon, we keep forgetting he was on the national security council,” said Moore. “And then to come out and say, ‘I don’t really know him, he’s Sloppy Steve’ or whatever, he was their pick to be on the national security council. He helped run the campaign.”
Moore continued, “And as far as Wolff goes, I listened to the president’s comments that you just played there, it’s concerning to me that you let a man inside the White House with that kind of access to the Oval Office and the people in the staff that you now say, ‘I really didn’t know who he was?'”
“That in and of itself to me calls into play some judgment questions,” he concluded.
