Bannon on 60 Minutes: Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell ‘Trying to Nullify 2016 Election’

Written by  Tony Lee

Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon believes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) are trying to “nullify” the 2016 election because they do not believe in the economic nationalist agenda that got President Donald Trump elected.

In an interview with CBS anchor Charlie Rose that will air on Sunday’s 60 Minutes, Bannon said that is why he is going to “war” with the Republican establishment. He also revealed that McConnell even told Trump’s team to “back off” the “drain the swamp” talk during one of their first meetings.

“The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election,” Bannon told Rose, in a clip that the CBS Evening News previewed on Thursday evening. “That’s a brutal fact we have to face.”

When Rose asked him to name names, Bannon answered, “I think Mitch McConnell, and to a degree, Paul Ryan. They do not want Donald Trump’s populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented. It’s very obvious.”

Bannon then told Rose that during one of the first meetings with McConnell at Trump Tower, the Senate Majority Leader told Trump’s team, “I don’t wanna hear any more of this ‘drain the swamp’ talk.”

The Breitbart News executive chairman said McConnell told them that “a guy up on Capitol Hill can’t buy a Coke unless it’s gotta be reported” and, as a result, he “can’t hire any smart people.

Ryan was re-elected in 2016. His constituents were probably aware of his views. He should not change his positions, based exclusively upon the election of ANY other person. Remember, Despicable Donald received the majority of the Electoral College votes cast, but DID NOT receive a majority of ALL votes cast, not even a plurality. Thus, the American people did not, as a whole, decide that they wanted him as president.

Steve Bannon is spot on, McConnell and Rino Ryan despise President Trump. They will go to any lengths to overthrow President Trump. Congress, a lot of the members are involved secretly, is working 24/7 to get President Trump out and their own , Mike Pence, on. They know if they can pull this off, things will be back to normal with their sleazy ways. If this does happen, they might have bitten off far more than they can chew. The voters in this country are sick and tired of WA and their business as usual policies. You have many in this country in Congress, both parties, that are against everything that makes America. They want anything and everything global, no borders, as many from every country they can load into our country which will totally destroy America as we know her. Our DOJ and FBI along with many other agencies are trying to take over our nation as well. Obama minions are still everywhere within our government agencies including the DOJ and FBI and as long as they re there nothing will change. They all are fighting against President Trump including members in his own cabinet that refuse to help him implement his agenda.

Both of these RINO's including McCain need to be fired!! McCain is going to have his Brain Rot do us all a favor!!!
