White House feels like a ‘bunker’ as Trump does damage control over Bannon’s ‘Fire & Fury’ confessions: report

Published

on

Though it’s not the first storm the Trump White House has weathered, the ranks of the West Wing are reportedly in full damage control mode amid revelations from former chief strategist Steve Bannon in a new book titled Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

As The Daily Beast reported Wednesday afternoon, sources inside the White House say “a bunker mentality took hold” in the aftermath of Bannon’s many confessions about the atmosphere when he worked for the administration.

“There was a sense of palpable anger at the quotes Bannon gave to [writer Michael] Wolff for his book,” the Beast’s report read.

People who spoke with the president following the Fire and Fury excerpt’s release said he seemed “more furious that Bannon appeared to take too much credit for the 2016 victory,” and appeared less focused on the Breitbart executive’s comments that Donald Trump Jr.’s infamous Trump Tower meeting was “treasonous.”

“Members of President Trump’s inner circle, including his immediate family, were instantly enraged on Wednesday after the Bannon excerpts dropped,” the report continued, “and began hitting the phones to communicate to friends the imperative of ensuring Bannon is banished in Trump-world.”

Published

A conservative attorney knocked down Republican arguments against impeachment one by one in a viral tweet, and urged others to support the removal President Donald Trump.

Bryan Gividen, an appellate attorney from Dallas, touted his conservative bona fides by describing himself as a "pro-religious liberty, pro-life, would snort Cocaine Mitch’s judicial confirmations" if he could -- but still said he supports Trump's impeachment.

"At this point, there is no question that President Trump directed U.S. officials to withhold security funding to the Ukraine so Ukraine would investigate the Bidens," Gividen began. "That is the kind of abuse of the President’s authority we should not tolerate."
