Is Steve Bannon next to be ousted from the White House for being a leaker?


Recommended Posts


President Donald Trump reportedly believes his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, is the man behind leaks from the West Wing, a new report reveals.

Axios reported Saturday, citing sources in the West Wing, that senior-level staff in the White House believe Bannon is the man behind some of the leaks coming from Pennsylvania Avenue, specifically the leaks targeting Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster. If true, it would put Bannon’s job in jeopardy.

According to Axios, Trump is “fed up” and “irritated” with Bannon for a number of reasons, including “self-promotion” within West Wing ranks. The president is also reportedly displeased that Bannon sat idle while Breitbart News ran a number of articles targeting McMaster. Bannon is the former chairman of Breitbart News.

Since Trump appointed Gen. John Kelly as his new chief of staff last month, it may be likely that Kelly will do the “dirty work” and fire Bannon, Axios reported. After all, in just the two weeks that Kelly has been in the White House, Bannon has seen his influence dwindle.


Bye bye Bannon?
