    Seems like a pretty meaningless distraction unless Bannon has more than the Fusion GPS stooge.

    The bigger part of the story is that the white house just let a guy hang around and write a book about all the bullshit that happens behind closed doors.

    The fact that Bannon, a former high level member of his staff was willing to actually go on the record saying he was an idiot is just icing on the cake.

    If Trump "turned him down many times" why was this guy even in the building?

    Bannon has his own little news organisation, which apparently wasn't fake news. But of course now will be.

    It's just another page in the soap opera, that is Trumps presidency.

    Who f**kin' cares.

    Everyone knew he was an idiot before he got elected.

    Meanwhile Republicans continue to pass legislation.

    So the book is just like the Steele dossier.

    It seems to me there must have been quite a few people that that didn't know he was an idiot then, and still haven't worked it out, mind you the numbers probably shrinking.

    Why the f**k are you in this thread then?

    It was pretty obvious to me but clearly many didn't know he was an idiot.

    Both are full of unverified information that the author has no interest in determining the truth of.

    There's nothing in it for anyone if the place goes to hell in a hand basket, and I'm actually interested to see Trump's agenda passed so as to see the result.

    "investigative dossier that was leaked to the media"

    Weren't Fusion GPS actually arranging for Steele to have interviews with the media?

    lolz... leaks.

    f**king buzzfeed published it. If you want a hit piece, go with a more reputable organization.

    I have no idea what you're talking about with Fusion GPS, I tend to steer clear of conspiracy sites. There is certainly nothing I'm aware of in regards to Steele who was famously secretive after the release of the document.

    In any case, even Steele has said he believes it 70-90% accurate, that isn't the point of a dossier, it's merely a collection of information to be followed up on.

    As for the book how can anyone figure out what's true, Trump will say one thing, then the next day argue until he is blue in the face that he never said it.... Leaving the post on twitter for all to see.

    For someone who doesn't give a shit about it, you sure do argue a lot about it.

    You are aware that Steele is facing multiple defamation lawsuits, yeah? It's a bit hard to be "secretive" during legal proceedings. You are aware that Republicans have multiple investigations going looking at the conduct of Fusion GPS, yeah?

    Conspiracy sites... lolz... Only a retard would call The Hill or McLatchyDC a "conspiracy site."

    Fusion GPS arranged for Steele to meet with journalists prior to the election. Michael Isikoff and David Corn wrote about the contents of the dossier. Again, prior to the election. You'd know this if you were paying attention.

    Steele is paid to say whatever his employer tells him to.

    Yes, conveniently the author leaves that up to us, while even telling us some of the tales are bald faced lies.

    This is a pretty good example of how ill informed you are.

    It was a hit piece before BuzzFeed published it. CNN had been flapping their gums about it for days after Comey talked to Trump about it. All the news organisations either had a copy or had seen it.

    I'm well aware it had been doing the circles beforehand. If it was a controlled hit piece like you're talking about, they sure did a shit house job of handling it.

    Sorry I don't follow InfoWars so I'm poorly educated.

    Ooooh a republican investigation. I don't recall mentioning either of those publications either.

    I can't wait for Trey Gowdy and Devin Nunes to give us their unbiased insights.
