Bannon to testify

Twitter Users Gleefully Troll Steve Bannon Over Breitbart Exit http://ift.tt/2CZDBiG

Washington Post:

Former White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon has hired prominent Washington attorney William Burck to represent him as he prepares to testify to the House Intelligence Committee about his role in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, according to a person familiar with the arrangement.

Bannon had previously insisted that he did not need a lawyer because he had not been drawn into the multiple investigations into whether Trump’s team coordinated with Russia during the 2016 campaign. But in recent weeks, the House intelligence panel made a request that Bannon testify before the committee.

Bannon’s hiring of Burck was first reported by the Daily Beast.

Burck, co-managing partner at the firm Quinn Emanuel, is also representing other key members of Trump’s campaign and White House staff, including former chief of staff Reince Priebus and White House Counsel Donald McGahn.

The person familiar with the arrangement said Burck’s representation is limited to congressional testimony and does not include preparing Bannon to speak to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. It also covers only Bannon’s role on Trump’s campaign, as opposed to events that occurred during the presidential transition or while Bannon served as a top aide to Trump in the White House.

    Wait until Mueller gets this racist, xenophobic Nazi in a small, windowless room full of prosecutors.

    Him and his warmonger Zionist, racist, xenophobic, Fascist pal Stephen Miller, Trump’s Senior Policy
    Advisor.

    The awful news yesterday was that 65 Democrats in the House voted with the Republicans to reauthorize the unconstitutional Section 702 of the Patriot Act.

    To name a few of them: Pelosi, Hoyer, Clayburn, Schiff, Lowey, Wasserman-Schultz, Slaughter, Meeks.

    Dianne Feinstein supports Section 702, which violates the 4th Amendment right of citizens to be “secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects.”

    Feinstein also opposes Rand Paul’s common sense Amendment which would limit how the NSA’s megadata collection could be used and against whom.

    Schumer, Warner, and other Democrats in the Senate also oppose Paul’s bill.

    In conclusion Paul “Ayn Rand” Ryan is a liar and a racist.
