Steve Bannon Set For First Major TV Interview Since Leaving the White House (Sneak Peak Photo)

What has former Chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon been up to since leaving the Trump administration? Back at the helm of Breitbart News, Bannon is set to give his first major interview to CBS News’ Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes this Sunday.

CBS News reports:

Stephen K. Bannon, President Donald Trump’s chief strategist until a few weeks ago, will appear in his first television interview on this Sunday’s 60 Minutes at 7 p.m. on the CBS Television Network. Bannon met Charlie Rose today in Washington to speak in his first extended interview since he left his post  on Aug.18.

Breitbart boss Steve Bannon is wasting no time in forwarding the ‘MAGA’ agenda. According to Axios, Bannon and Breitbart reporter Matt Boyle met with Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows to discuss ways to challenge the likes of Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on every issue under the sun.

Axios reports:

Steve Bannon met with Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows on Monday afternoon at the “Breitbart Embassy” — the Capitol Hill townhouse so-named because those who work at the right-wing website like to think of themselves as the ambassadors for “real America” in Washington, D.C.

Joining Bannon and Meadows at the dining table on the second floor of the townhouse was Breitbart’s Washington editor Matt Boyle. The three men plotted for nearly two hours on the agenda for the month ahead, with an emphasis on the Breitbart-Freedom Caucus war against Republican leadership on multiple fronts.

  • They discussed the Freedom Caucus’s plans for taking on GOP leadership over the debt ceiling, tax reform, health care payments, the budget and the government funding bill.

 

  • Expect them to demand payments for the wall and to combat leadership’s plans to attach Hurricane Harvey aid to the debt ceiling increase.
