"A hundred women? Kasowitz took care of them all", said Bannon as recently reported by Business Insider.

The White House fired back at Bannon in a lengthy press release that downplayed his influence in Trump's winning election campaign, marking a vicious public falling out between the president and former high-ranking staffer. For months, Trump allowed Bannon to conduct open war from inside the White House against established party leaders, incumbent lawmakers and other heavyweights Bannon believed were undermining Trump's populist revolution.

Stephen Bannon, President Donald Trump's chief strategist, has faced criticism for his background overseeing Breitbart News, with Democrats touting numerous racially tinged and misogynistic headlines that went up under his watch. Burck's remit will be limited to just that forum and does not encompass special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russian Federation probe, according to the NBC source. After the win, he accompanied Mr. Trump to the White House and became his chief strategist. But the Mercer family, the megadonors behind Trump who had also backed Bannon financially, has distanced itself from Bannon, and he had to step down from his post as executive chairman of Breitbart News Network.

"I feel betrayed because you're not supposed to do that", Trump in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

In what was seen as an attempt to show Trump is mentally fit and in command, the president had kept a pool of reporters, including a TV camera, inside of a meeting he had on Tuesday with US lawmakers on immigration. Trump's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with requests in the probe, which has already resulted in charges against four of Trump's campaign advisers.

In a tweet, Mr Trump claimed even Democrats know there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Earlier this week, Senator Feinstein, who faces a primary challenge in her re-election this year, released the transcript of the Senate Judiciary Committee's closed-door August interview with an official from the political opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the dossier.

Bannon was chief executive of the Trump campaign in its final three months during the 2016 USA elections.
