It was Bannon - Trump's former senior strategist, fired by the U.S. president in August - who helped give Wolff access to the White House to carry out research for his bombshell book.

"I'm proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform", Bannon said in a statement carried on Breitbart's website.

And yet Gorka - in an effort to stand by his man - has confirmed that Wolff did indeed have access to the White House and that staffers were asked to speak with him for the book. "I am confident in everything that is in this book", he said.

Mercer last week rebuked Bannon for his "recent actions and statements", an apparent reference to remarks Bannon made that journalist Michael Wolff quoted in his book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House". "They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV", Wolff quoted Bannon as saying.

There is, however, enough explosive force in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" to demolish another pernicious threat to American democracy - the career of right-wing provocateur Steve Bannon.

Bannon has been abandoned by financial patrons, condemned by erstwhile political allies and ridiculed by Trump himself over his comments, which he has not denied making but has since tried to walk back.

According to The Guardian, Mr Bannon said in a statement: "My comments were aimed at Paul Manafort, a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate".

Breitbart announced Tuesday that Bannon would step down from his post as executive chairman of the site, a position he first held between 2012 and August 2016.
