Bannon: ‘Focused’ Pelosi Will Impeach Trump In Next Six Weeks
Steve Bannon, a former top strategist for Trump, says House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi will lead Democrats to impeach the president by early December.
“This is serious. As sure as the turning of the earth, he is going to be impeached by Pelosi in the next six weeks,” Bannon told the New York Post. “Nancy Pelosi is very focused.”
Bannon said he’s not impressed by the White House’s lackadaisical approach to impeachment.
“I don’t feel comfortable when I see the chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney,” Bannon said. Mulvaney was blasted last week after he seemed to confirm charges that Trump withheld aid to Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into business dealing there by Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
“The problem we have is that the president needs a team around him and somebody has got to step up and make a play. Trump can’t do everything,” Bannon said. “There is just no coordination with the team.”
“The fake news and witch hunt stuff is not working,” Bannon added.
Bannon told the Post that Trump needs “a team put together than can focus on [impeachment] 24/7.”
And he said that Mike Bloomberg or Hillary Clinton could still enter the 2020 race and would be able candidates.
“Bloomberg or Clinton could be very competitive,” he said. “She is a very formidable candidate and I think Bloomberg would be very formidable.”
Meanwhile, Dick Morris, a longtime adviser to Bill Clinton, said Hillary is likely running.
“I think it’s always possible that Hillary runs,” Morris said Sunday on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio.
“There’s a test you can do at home. Just put your fingers on her wrist, and if you feel a pulse, you know she’s going to run.”
