Bannon also criticized Trump Jr. for meeting with a Russian lawyer. Bannon stated, “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers.”
He continued, “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 FBI immediately.”
Wolff’s book is expected to be released on the 9th.
Ivanka’s spokesman has yet to respond to Bannon’s comment.

Back in December, Bannon went after Republicans who didn’t support Roy Moore. Bannon stated, “There’s a special place in Hell for Republicans who should know better.”
Bannon’s comment seemed to be a shot at Ivanka who said something similar in November. She stated, “There’s a special place in Hell for people who prey on children.”
After Bannon’s excerpts of the book were released, Donald Trump attacked him saying, “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency.”
Trump continued, “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”
In August, Bannon resigned from his White House position and is back at Breitbart.
The White House has also pushed back on the book describing it as “trashy tabloid fiction filled with false & misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House.”
