With Bannon gone, we can see Trumpism for what it really is

Bannon was working as Trump's chief strategist when the president fired FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyTrump: Dershowitz interview on "witch hunt" a "must watch" Comey after Trump tweet: FBI is honest, strong, independent Former ethics director: Trump's tweet on Flynn would have ended past administrations MORE a year ago.

On Tuesday, Trump met with a bipartisan team in the nation's capital to discuss comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty for undocumented immigrants, of which Bannon was an outspoken critic.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is expected to testify before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed session next week, NBC News reported on Friday, citing two sources.

The White House had filed a cease-and-desist order to block the book's release, but publisher ignored the challenge and published the book ahead of its scheduled release date.

"When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Trump said in a sizzling statement about Bannon. And he has lost his job as executive chairman at Breitbart News, the right-wing news site he had returned to running after leaving the White House.

As late as last weekend, Bannon continued to tell people that he planned to stay in charge at Breitbart and that Solov supported him.

Bannon did not dispute his comments in the book, but he apologized for them.

Immigrants and supporters demonstrate during a September rally in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in front of the White House in Washington, D.C. Some West Wing aides in recent days had made little effort to hide their happiness that Bannon had suffered such a public rebuke.

In reply to derogatory remarks Mr. Bannon made about Trump family members, the president contended that Mr. Bannon's role in his campaign and first months of his administration were overblown.

Trump replied to Bannon's comments with fury, saying "When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind". But some Trump allies hope the president will permanently cut off his former strategist, and the fate of Bannon's insurgency against the Republican establishment is now in doubt.

Bannon doesn't quit, though, and he'll be back.
