Flights of Fancy: Could Bannon be gaslighting Trump at the behest of Mueller? (Click link to comment and take poll)
Mr. Bannon is not known for second-guessing himself and views apologies as signs of weakness. Nowhere in his statement on Sunday did he actually say he was sorry. But the turn of events represented a stunning reversal of fortune for a man who once operated with such autonomy in the White House that, as chief strategist, he reported only to the president himself. And he reiterated his allegiance in his statement, saying, “My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda.” New York Times article above
“Bannon was an insider in the campaign at the highest level, and in the White House all the way to last August. He was talking to the president constantly – I can’t imagine Trump not confiding in him, including over the Russia inquiry.”
That in turn raises the possibility that Bannon might cooperate. Certainly, there is no love lost between him and Trump family members, notably the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.Here’s the salient quote:
“Bannon may already be cooperating with Mueller for all we know,” Painter said. “He has no incentive to cover up for Trump, or his family members.” The Guardian

From Andy Borowitz - While most of Trump’s aides reflexively took their boss’s side in the dustup with Bannon, one staffer could not help expressing some sympathy for the exiled former adviser. “To be called mentally ill by Donald Trump—that’s got to hurt,” the aide said.
