Rejecting the House Democrats' show trials, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon said this is a foreign policy debate, not a legit pursuit of impeachment, which is "outrageous."
"This is really a policy dispute between these unelected bureaucrats [and Trump]," Bannon told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "This the foreign policy of John McCain and the Bush family and Madeline Albright, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton. The permanent political class' foreign policy's on display here. This is exactly what Trump was elected to get away from.
"This is about managed decline, and Donald Trump was about returning America to her former greatness."
Bannon told host John Catsimatidis "this impeachment is try to blunt the art of Trump's presidency."
"I think everybody ought to start paying attention to this impeachment because you'll see how outrageous it is," Bannon said. "You'll see it's a political warfare run by Nancy Pelosi. President Trump has done nothing wrong."
Bannon laments the Republican base is not as charged against impeachment as Democrats are for it, despite the resistance bias in it, saying "the Republican establishment is hanging back."
"The forefront of that was to make sure we rooted out corruption – that we're not giving money to foreign countries that's just going to go to a bunch of Kleptocrats," Bannon said, rejecting whatever impeachable offense Democrats plan to turn to with regard to Ukraine dealings.
"If we have a full and frank debate about America First national security policy, Donald Trump is going to win this hands down," he concluded.
