Bannon Hires Quinn Emanuel Atty For House Russia Probe

Trump: 'Our current libel laws are a sham' Stung by Michael Wolff's book, Trump calls for stronger US libel laws

One of Trump's personal attorneys, Charles Harder, sent cease and desist letters to Steve Bannon, Wolff and the publishing company, Henry Holt.

Less than a year ago, Time magazine put Mr Stephen Bannon on its cover and wondered whether he might be the second most powerful man in the world. Five days later, Mr Bannon was out. And Trump was eager and happy to have someone who supplied him with ideas that, most importantly, grabbed the public's attention and kept him in the limelight on his way to an unexpected election victory. Bannon liquidated his equity stake in the operation when he left for the White House, leaving him with a greatly diminished say in the matter.

The departure followed the release of author Michael Wolff's new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", in which Bannon said Donald Trump Jr.

Thanks to Trump's appointment of Neil Gorsuch, the court now has a conservative majority, but may not necessarily fall in line behind the Republican president.

Putin praises 'mature politician' Kim Jong
Trump also again indicated he's open to direct USA talks with North Korea under the right circumstances. "I believe Mr Kim Jong-Un has won this round", Putin told Russian journalists on Thursday.

Mr. Bannon and Mr. Trump joined hands in August 2016, even as the latter's campaign was floundering.

Burck, a former federal prosecutor, told Big Law Business Jan. 11 that he is only representing Bannon in connection with his role in the 2016 campaign, and not his work in the presidential transition or in the administration.

The Cabinet meeting came a day after he allowed cameras to document almost an hour of talks with Republican and Democratic lawmakers over immigration reform, a moment Mr. Trump referred to as a "good performance" on his part.

But since Trump's surprising election victory Bannon's star was already beginning to shine too brightly for a president who craves the limelight. In response, President Trump said in a statement that his former strategist had "lost his mind".

Helfrich to be named Chicago Bears offensive coordinator
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears will hire former University of OR head coach as their new offensive coordinator. Helfrich will not be calling plays initially, but he will inherit a second-year quarterback in Mitchell Trubisky.

"I've spent around three hours with the president, over the course of the campaign and in the White House". "It is the only thing he does well". But Mr. Bannon has an ego only second in size to that of his former boss'.

His departure from Breitbart threatens to further isolate the self-proclaimed champion of anti-Washington populism that swept Trump to power and whom Bloomberg once called "the most unsafe political operative in America".

"So we're going to take a strong look at that".

Mr. Trump, still smarting, or perhaps eating, pretended not to notice. But one of Trump's other attorneys, Michael Cohen, filed a separate suit against BuzzFeed on Tuesday over the site's publication of the Russian Federation dossier past year. He has become a one-man leper colony in a town where shaking hands is everything. "I never know what the word permanent means", he told The Wall Street Journal, when asked if his break with his former aide was permanent. "I think what the American people want to see is fairness".
