Steve Bannon quits Breitbart Information position following spat…

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. Now he's been disowned and nicknamed

It quoted Mr Bannon as saying: "I'm proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform".

Former Trump political strategist Steve Bannon is lawyering up in preparation to "fully cooperate" with special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

The poll was conducted in the wake of continued fallout between the former chief strategist and the president following the release of excerpts from a controversial book on the Trump administration.

But the Mercer family, the megadonors behind Trump who had also backed Bannon financially, has distanced itself from Bannon, and he had to step down from his post as executive chairman of Breitbart News Network.

"Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish", Breitbart CEO Larry Solov said in a statement from the company.

After days of silence amid withering criticism from his former colleagues and his largest benefactor, Bannon tried to make amends.

This comes after he described the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Junior and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic". He also said he would like Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner to appear again before the committee while noting that the choice of witnesses is determined by the panel's Republican leadership.

To the editor: The only forces that can control President Donald Trump are the Cabinet and the Republicans in Congress.

Bannon, who previously criticized the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey, said he doesn't expect a conclusion to the special counsel investigation anytime soon.

This was not the revolution Mr Bannon, just a year ago, may have envisioned.

He has trashed the book as "fake" and its author, Michael Wolff, as "totally discredited author" and has sought to defend himself as a "very stable genius".

"My clients do not intend to cease publication, no such retraction will occur, and no apology is warranted", the letter reads.

"Mr Trump is the President of the United States, with the "bully pulpit" at his disposal'".

Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mueller's team.
