Steve Bannon Lawyers Up

Steve Bannon Lawyers Up... as Russia Investigators Get Ready to Pounce


Odds are he is about to get the chance to visit with Mueller for a while.

Steve Bannon Lawyers Up... as Russia Investigators Get Ready to Pounce
Trump’s former chief strategist has largely avoided the spotlight of the Russia probe—until now.

Steve Bannon is lawyering up as he gets ready to face investigators looking into the Trump-Russia nexus.

The Daily Beast has learned that the former top White House strategist has retained Bill Burck, of the firm Quinn Emanuel. Two sources tell us Burck is helping Bannon prepare for an interview with the House intelligence committee, which is currently scheduled for next week. Sources also said Bannon plans to “fully cooperate” with investigators.

Which is why this stinks. Why would he have to lawyer up, and with the same lawyer McGhan and Prebus have? I'll bet Mueller is asking himself that same question. Bannon is the biggest fish so far, and could easily make a deal for immunity if he was actually going to be truthful, and cooperate in any meaningful way. I don't trust his fat ass as far as I can throw him, and I bet Mueller doesn't either.

Bannon plans to ‘fully cooperate’ with Mueller — and he hires the same lawyer as Reince Priebus and Don McGahn. This amid speculation that Bannon WILL turn on Trump.
Isn't there a song called Wrecking Ball??? Teeheee

Actually, further down in the article, they bring up the fact that one lawyer representing multiple persons in a matter smacks of collusion among those persons.

Collusion? How apropos.

LOL It says he is to testify to the committee, and people do and should have a lawyer when they do so. As for Mueller, so? Bannon may have opened himself up to be interviewed by the special counsel if anything in Wolff's book is factual. Then again, Wolff may also be called in front of Mueller's star chamber over his book.
Thanks from Jimgorn
