New Explosive Revelation By Steve Bannon Could Land ‘Treasonous’ Trump Jr. In Prison
In a new bombshell revelation, former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon called the 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a group of Russians “treasonous.” The explosive claim could land Donald Trump Jr. and other Trump campaign officials in prison for “serious crimes” against the U.S.
According to a new book obtained by The Guardian, Bannon said the meeting that occurred during the 2016 presidential race was “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Bannon reportedly told author Michael Wolff, referring to the investigation into the Russian election interference.
After news of the meeting surfaced last year, Bannon reportedly said: “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers.”
“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,” Bannon said, according to the book.
The quotes were chronicled in the book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which is scheduled to be released next week.
News surfaced last year of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting that included a Russian attorney, Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
CNN reported last month that a British publicist who arranged the June 2016 sent multiple follow-up emails later that summer to President Trump’s social media director and a Russian who was at the meeting.
According to CNN, Congressional investigators discovered the emails from publicist Rob Goldstone during a hearing behind closed doors with Donald Trump Jr. None of the emails were sent directly to the president’s eldest son.
