Steve Bannon Screws Up And Admits The White House Discussed Trump Jr.’s Meeting With Russians

During his testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee, Steve Bannon made a giant mistake by admitting that White House senior officials discussed Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with Russians in Trump Tower.

Axios reported, “Steve Bannon made one conspicuous slip up in his closed-door hearing on Tuesday with the House Intelligence Committee, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the confidential proceedings. Bannon admitted that he’d had conversations with Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and legal spokesman Mark Corallo about Don Junior’s infamous meeting with the Russians in Trump Tower in June 2016.”

This is important because it suggests that the Trump campaign manager knew about Don Jr.’s meeting with the Russians, which is another indicator that the campaign was looking to collude or cooperate with a hostile foreign power. There is also the not so small issue of when these conversations took place in the White House. Were the conversations part of Trump’s attempt to cover-up the meeting aboard Air Force One?

The larger issue is what did Trump know because collusion isn’t a crime, but obstruction of justice definitely is.

Steve Bannon said too much while talking to Congress. He knows where the bodies are buried, which is why Special Counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed him. Steve Bannon’s role in this scandal may not be pivotal when it comes collusion, but he could be a major witness in the obstruction of justice investigation.
