Steve Bannon to Testify in Congress on Russia Probe, Popularity Tanks

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is losing support among Republicans after feuding with President Trump.
According to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, less than 20-percent of GOP voters said they had a favorable view of Bannon.
46-percent of Republicans said they had an unfavorable view of the former executive chairman of Breitbart News.
This represents a major drop from about a month earlier when more than 30-percent of Republican voters viewed Bannon in a positive light.
The poll was conducted in the wake of continued fallout between the former chief strategist and the president following the release of excerpts from a controversial book on the Trump administration.

Meanwhile, Bannon is set to testify before Congress in relation to the Russia probe.
Bannon’s testimony will take place behind closed doors next Tuesday with the House Intelligence Committee.
The interview will focus on Bannon’s time with the Trump campaign rather than the transition period or his tenure as President Trump’s chief strategist.
This comes after he described the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Junior and a Russian lawyer as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
Several separate probes into the alleged Russian collusion have lasted for over a year, and have failed to produce the results Democrats have been hoping for.
