Bannon Hires Quinn Emanuel Atty For House Russia Probe

Bannon Hires Quinn Emanuel Atty For House Russia Probe

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that his administration will examine whether U.S. libel laws can be strengthened after a new book questioned his mental fitness to serve as president.

"Our current libel laws are a sham and a disgrace and do not represent American values or American fairness", the president told reporters at the White House, as he met with his Cabinet for the first time in 2018.

His ties with Trump were already strained after he was forced from his White House job last summer and frayed completely this month when a new book quoted Bannon as describing a controversial Trump campaign meeting with a Kremlin-tied lawyer in June 2016 as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

He quickly presided over the brand of economic populism promoted by Trump and was hired as chief strategist for the White House.

Bannon, the former top aide to US President Donald Trump, stepped down from his position as chairman of right-wing news outlet Breitbart News on Tuesday. Burck is not representing Bannon in the Mueller probe.

Bannon tried to make amends Sunday.

"My comments were aimed at Paul Manafort, a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate", Bannon said.

Bannon, in the book, was also quoted saying investigators would crack Trump Jr. like an egg on national television.

The Modesto Irrigation District reported that more than half of an inch of rain had fallen in downtown Modesto on Tuesday. According to the weather service, the average high temperature for January 11 is just 31 degrees.

Mr Trump said Russian Federation and the world were laughing at the stupidity of the United States for allowing the probe led by special counsel Robert Muller to continue and appeared to call for Republicans to intervene.

"I had not seen him get this angry about a book since he finished 'The Monster at the End of This Book, '" Colbert said, referring to the popular children's book. But the scandals persecute Trump, and this debate was joined by the controversial tweet in which he claimed that the button for the launch of nuclear missiles in his office is much more powerful than the one claimed to have by the leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Kim Jong Un.

Burck is helping ready Bannon for an interview with the House Intelligence Committee next week, according to the Daily Beast, which first reported the hire.

Bannon emerged from relative obscurity when Trump picked him as campaign chief in August 2016, just three months out from the presidential election that he was then widely expected to loose against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
