Steve Bannon, Corey Lewandowski, and Hope Hicks will testify before the House Intelligence Committee about what they know about Donald Trump and his alleged Russian connections.
Bannon will testify tomorrow. Lewandowski and Hicks will testify later this week.
Bannon and Lewandowski were both key players in the Trump Campaign.
Lewandowski was the campaign manager, and Bannon served as the CEO of the
Bannon jumped on the Trump train late in August of
2016, while Lewandowski was kicked off the Trump train in June 2016; which
is the same time that infamous Russian meeting happened at Trump Tower.
After Lewandowski was given his walking papers, recently convicted felon Paul Manafort came in and took over.
Do y'all see it? I hope y'all see it.
Lewandowski gets the boot in
June and Manafort officially takes over in June; which is the same time Don
Jr and them meet with those shady Russians. Mm-hmm.
Manafort was able to stop the Republican revolt at the convention, while allegedly helping the Russians to continue their intervention in the 2016 Presidential Election.
I say “allegedly helping” because Manafort’s felon record is due to his money laundering and lying to the FBI and not his alleged shady dealings with those Russians; which I’m sure will come out later.
White House Communications Director Hope Hicks will testify about what she knows about that letter Donald Trump reportedly wrote for Don Jr., saying the June 2016 meeting Don Jr, Paul Manafort, and brother-in-law Jared Kushner had with those
Russians at Trump Tower was about adoptions and not getting dirt on Hillary Clinton.
As for Bannon and Lewandowski, no one is saying that they actually helped the Russians to do Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in.
Bannon and Lewandowski serve more of the fly on the wall role. They were there when things were happening and they know what happened.
Bannon told Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, everything that he knows; which includes Bannon saying Don Jr’s June 2016 meeting with those Russians was “treasonous.”
After Wolff’s book hit the shelves, shit hit the fan for Bannon. His money well dried up and Trump gave him a nickname, “Sloppy Steve.”
Recognizing this is it, Bannon tried apologizing for talking about the Trump family worse than folks talked about the child of God.
But, that didn’t help. He had to leave Brietbart and is now looked at as a political nimpkoopoo and not the political genius he wanted folks to see him as.
So, Bannon is left to do what Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci, whose job Hope Hicks took, said he was doing anyway; which is snitching on everybody.
It’s just this time Bannon will be snitching to Congress and he will be joined by the former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who never got that White House job he wanted.
