Abcarian: Steve Bannon discovers the hard way that defying Congress is no joke.
This is part 7 of a 12 part series on Steve Bannon’s tenure as chief strategist and senior counselor for President Donald Trump.
In part 1, Stephen K. Bannon, Jr. explained how he went from a relatively obscure political commentator to an influential political advisor and senior counselor for the new president.
Part 2 focused on Bannon’s rise to prominence and what he hopes to achieve in the White House.
Part 3 examined the political implications for the Trump administration, a conversation in which Bannon said he would not “have a problem with the president of the United States going after me if I go too far.”
Part 4 examined Bannon’s recent comments about President Donald Trump’s presidency and how they differed from his early comments on the campaign trail and his recent comments defending his boss.
Part 5 examined how Bannon helped Trump with his inaugural speech and how he expects to use his influence in the future to “take down” Democrats.
Part 6 examined Bannon’s comments on how certain media outlets are controlled by Democrats.
Part 7 concentrated on how Bannon learned the hard way that defying Congress was no joke.
