The Russia Investigations: Bannon Comes In From The Cold, Trump Wavers On Mueller

Once upon a time, Steve Bannon belonged to the princes of the universe. Loved by his allies and hated by his foes, he was, most importantly, feared by both.

Now, however, the prince has been brought low. A whirlwind reversal left his battlements in ruins and Bannon himself cast out of his own realm, friendless. With no radio show, no billionaire patrons and no access to the president he helped get elected, Bannon has found himself adrift on an iceberg in the night.

It is this Bannon not the colossus, but the castaway who is set to testify next week before the House Intelligence Committee about the Russia imbroglio: the Bannon who has already made clear that he thinks the much-discussed June 2016 Trump Tower meeting may have been "treasonous" and who broached the prospect that Donald Trump Jr. may have set up personal contact between his father, then a presidential candidate, and a Russian delegation arranged by Moscow.
