‘GOING ALL IN’: Steve Bannon is Back and Ready for War with New Anti-Impeachment Podcast
Former White House chief strategist and Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon recently launched a daily broadcast from his Washington D.C. home where he will be waging a war to stop the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Bannon, who served as Trump’s campaign manager in the run-up to the historic 2016 presidential election, has a rocky history with the President, but has returned to use his unparalleled media expertise to be in the President’s corner as he embarks on the political fight of his life.
Bannon’s hour-long podcast is called, “War Room: Impeachment,” and he told The Hill that he does not want back into the administration, but believes he can defend against the deep state’s permanent coup from the outside.
“It’s a master class in disinformation warfare,” Bannon said of the Democrats’ propaganda against the President.
He believes that the Democrats are controlling the narrative regarding Trump’s recent scandal regarding Ukraine, which has resulted in various opinion polls showing an increase of independents supporting the impeachment inquiry. Bannon does not believe that these polls are fake news, and the administration should be doing a much better job with messaging.
“The argument that this is all fake news and a deep state witch hunt is just not working,” Bannon said. “Look at the polls. Look at independents. It’s brutal. That’s got to be a fire bell in the night.”
While Bannon believes that there is next to no chance that Trump will be removed even if he is impeached by the House, he does think that the proceedings could slow down Trump’s momentum and hurt his chances to win re-election in 2020.
Former Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller and former Human Events editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam are on board with the podcast, which launched on Saturday. The episodes appear on a radio show hosted by John Fredericks, a popular conservative personality with a large following in Virginia.
Bannon says that he will be fashioning his basement into a war room of sorts to re-launch a multi-pronged operation in the weeks to come. The media mogul is back in the saddle as politics in Washington D.C. heats up.
“I’m going all in now, I’ve got to,” Bannon said. “We’re riding to the sound of guns.”
He has already lined up high-profile guests to appear on his podcast. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), one of Trump’s closest allies in the House, called in on Thursday while Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a rising star who led a protest against the Democrats’ secret impeachment proceedings earlier this week, is calling in today.
“This is already having a dramatic impact on the Trump presidency,” Bannon said. “There is not a single trend cutting toward the White House. I’m a math guy. I see the polls. This is not working…in less than four weeks they’re voting to impeach. Can someone start working 24 hours a day around here?”
After a messy public divorce following Bannon’s departure from the White House, President Trump gave some love to his former chief strategist in a tweet earlier this year:
Bannon may rise yet again to be one of the most influential conservative during a time of great uncertainty heading into next year’s elections.
