Earlier, we posted about Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon‘s candid admission to Sean Hannity that he’s been a leader in a civil war against the Republican party for nearly the past decade. Later in that same interview with Hannity, Bannon revealed his side’s next target.
The conservative wing of the Republican party and President Donald Trump have made no secret of their displeasure with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Wednesday night in his conversation with Hannity, Bannon went further than his former boss has to date — and called on McConnell to step down.
“I think Mitch McConnell tomorrow should tender his resignation and say after we get taxes done I will step aside and we will have a revote on Majority Leader…There needs to be a sense of urgency in the Senate.” Bannon said. He added, “They passed the budget, they’re starting to move on federal judges. But that’s all because, quite frankly, we put the spotlight on Mitch McConnell and said that this guy is just not supporting the President.”
The GOP civil war continues.
