Bannon has tried to explain away his insults as misunderstandings.

The person familiar with the arrangement said Burck's representation is limited to congressional testimony and does not include preparing Bannon to speak to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The interview will focus on Bannon's time with the Trump campaign rather than the transition period or his tenure as President Trump's chief strategist.

The catalyst for this freakish bombshell is a recently released insider book on Mr. Trump and his administration by free-lance writer Michael Wolff.

President Trump's anger over the Russian Federation investigation melded with his itchy Twitter finger on Thursday to undermine support for an intelligence program that the White House has been lobbying hard to preserve.

Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon is expected to privately speak with members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence at an unspecified date next week, according to unnamed sources who spoke with the Daily Beast.

In the book, Bannon is quoted as saying a pre-election meeting involving Trump's eldest son Donald Jr. and a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer was "treasonous". Mr. Bannon, he said, had "very little to do with our historic victory".

Burck confirmed to Law360 on Thursday that he is representing Bannon.

Mr Bannon could attempt to start a new venture without Mr Ailes or perhaps go back to making documentaries.

Former Breitbart spokesman Kurt Bardella does not think Mr Bannon would stay quiet for long. He left the White House just four months later, but by then Mr Ailes had died.

Bannon's departure from Breitbart marks a stunning fall from power for one of Trump's most influential and provocative counselors on both foreign and domestic policy.

Trump responded with a written statement disavowing his onetime White House adviser.

As a new year gets started, there are already more than enough reasons to worry about the state of the union in the era of Donald J. Trump and his merry band of confusion-spinners.
