Steve Bannon attends Security Council meeting one day after being ‘removed’

April 6, 2017

  The big news of the day yesterday was the story about Steve Bannon losing his seat on a National Security Council committee and the revocation of his security clearance. The mainstream media and the Democrats were giddy over this news but all might not be as it was reported yesterday.

  One day after being “removed” from the committee Steve Bannon attended a National Security Council meeting with his security clearance still in place, here is more:

One day after what was demonstrably one of the most-covered stories by the media focused on the “removal” of Steve Bannon, President Trump’s top adviser, from the National Security Council (NSC), he attended a council meeting, the Washington Examiner reported on Thursday.

Despite the headlines about Bannon’s removal, most media outlets included the fact that the change on the council only meant Bannon was no longer a permanent member on the council but that he retained top security clearance and could attend council meetings.

“Bannon is still permitted to go to NSC meetings,” Fox News reported on Wednesday.

“He is one of the president’s closest and most trusted advisers,” a White House source told CNBC when asked why Bannon attended.

  Despite this news to the contrary there are still reports circulating out there that Steve Bannon is on the way out because of a rift between himself and other Trump advisers. It is hard to determine what the truth is at this point but if today’s meeting is any indication it would seem as if the media is trying to create the appearance of disorder when in fact it is, or is mostly, non-existent. I still think there is something going on behind the scenes but it might not be as dramatic as we are being led to believe.
