Steve Bannon: Mueller Is ‘Going To Crack Don Junior Like An Egg On National TV’: Report
UPDATE: Trump attacks Bannon: “He lost his mind.”
Former Trump senior political strategist Steve Bannon reportedly said that Donald Trump Jr. will not withstand questioning from Special Counsel Robert Mueller who is investigating collusion between Russia and the Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.
“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Bannon reportedly told author Michael Wolff in an excerpt from Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
The Guardian notes the book contains “more than 200 interviews with the president, his inner circle and players in and around the administration.”
Bannon reportedly mocked Trump Jr. for taking a meeting with Russian officials:
Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.But that’s the brain trust that they had.
Bannon also had a dark prediction for Trump’s son-in-law and White House advisor Jared Kushner:
This is all about money laundering.Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f*cking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr. and Jared Kushner… It’s as plain as a hair on your face…
It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner sh*t. The Kushner sh*t is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.
