Steve Bannon may just be right


( CNN) The explosive statements attributed to the onetime prime strategist to President Donald Trump — and Trump’s blistering response to them — both captivate and prolong a height of chaos and infighting who are able to capsize the concerned authorities.

But even more important than the headline-grabbing reviles and accusations tossed by the two men is Bannon’s logical, cold-eyed identification, reflected in his notes to Wolff, that attorneys are likely improving a potent legal contingency based on alleged financial misdeeds of high-level Trump associates.

Much government commentary will now focus on Bannon’s haughty messages about Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kusher, the Trump campaign officials who attended — and then dissembled about— a fateful June 2016 assemble with , among others, Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian solicitor with ties to the Kremlin.
