Trump then steered the conversation to Bannon, who was recently ousted from Breitbart News amid a public feud with the President. Burck has also reportedly represented White House Counsel Don McGahn and former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into the Russian Federation issue.
The June 2016 meeting, in which Donald Jr. and other Trump campaign staff met with Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya, provided evidence of an attempt by the campaign to seek out damaging information on Hillary Clinton from Russian sources.
On Thursday, the House Intelligence committee's top Democrat, Adam Schiff, told reporters at the Capitol that Ms. Trump should appear before the panel, which he said still needs to interview "dozens" of witnesses to ensure "a complete job" of investigating alleged s between the Trump campaign and Kremlin-connected figures.
"Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s--, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately", Bannon allegedly said, according to Wolff.
Mr. Wolff also reports Ms. Walsh says she was obliged to respond to three different Trump power centers: Reince Priebus, the first chief of staff; Mr. Bannon and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Another possible avenue for Mr Bannon already is closed.
It was no wonder the Trump White House came off from the outside as a confused madhouse, with a president constantly getting mixed messages and making decisions as an ill-informed neophyte would-be politician. "I don't believe there's any way back for Mr. Bannon at this point", Gidley said.
President Trump perplexed political pundits when he boasted Thursday that he has "a very good relationship" with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, while in the same breath deriding his former right hand man Stephen Bannon as a traitor.
Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mueller's team.
