Bannon on Impeachment: "The World Is Watching To See If The Established Order Can Back Down Donald Trump"


Former White House strategist Steve Bannon warned President Trump to fight back hard against impeachment during an appearance with Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures."

"This is nullification project to nullify his presidency," he said. "This is the trial of the century. It is about the crime of the century. It has to be big. This is not C-SPAN3. This is going to be on global television."

"This is the crime of the century. This is an attempted coup on a sitting president," Bannon said. "A sitting president who turned out to be right. You know who says he’s right? The kids in Tehran. Kids in Beirut, in the streets trying to throw off Hezbollah. Kids in Hong Kong, being gassed and taking rubber bullets. Voters in Taipei, who yesterday threw out the Chinese communist party with a landslide. Who all wave American flags and all have signs of Donald Trump being a superhero. On the streets of the world."

STEVE BANNON: President Trump has stood up to the Chinese communist party, the dictators in Beijing, to the mullahs in Tehran, and now you're seeing the people -whether it is at the ballot box in Hong Kong or the protests -- a landslide victory for the Freedom and Democracy Party in Taiwan, with record turnout... In Tehran the exact same thing...

What President Trump did is go against the established order, the established political class whose foreign policy was to appease these dictators, appears Beijing, appease the mullahs. And that's why you saw this expansion of Iran... Donald Trump said this is not going to happen on my watch. He's taken a Churchillian stand against the permanent political class: The John Kerrys, the Hillary Clintons, the foreign policy establishment, the Neville Chamberlains. They were the appeasers...

First all, they hate him personally, but more than that, they oppose his America First policies. Freedom and capitalism are resonating around the world and that is what they oppose...

They see this trial on CSPAN with some tight legal arguments. I think President Trump, and he did this on Laura Ingraham the other night, he called for an expanded witness list, was he understands the jury is not the Senate. The Jury is the American people but the audience is the world!

They’re watching on the streets of Taipei, they’re watching in Hong Kong, they’re watching in Tehran, they’re watching to see if the established order can back down Donald Trump. And Donald Trump has the ability to win here. That’s why I’ve been calling it the trial of the century.

He calls it the crime of the century. It is the crime of the century. It should be treated like that. That’s why on Laura Ingraham he walked through the witnesses he wants. I think those witnesses have to be called…

Some of these moderate senators want to call Bolton and Mulvaney, and emails, and OMB, bring 'em! What do they have to show? Donald Trump did nothing wrong...

The established order were appeasers. They appeased the Chinese communist party, they appeased the mullahs. He stood up to that. And he showed you in the crime of the century we should have the whistleblower up. We should have Hunter Biden up. We should have the gentleman Horowitz who wrote the IG Report. We should have those people up and they should testify.
