Old enmities are resurfacing as Wolff’s book about Trump is published – not least Steve Bannon’s disdain for ‘Jarvanka’

07 Jan

It is not exactly a state secret that amid the fear and loathing of the Trump White House, Steve Bannon had particular disdain and dislike for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. Now there are allegations which draw them, as well as Jared Kushner’s father, further into the ever deepening Russia investigation.

The sacking by Trump of James Comey is being examined by special counsel Robert Mueller as a possible act of obstruction of justice. In Michael Wolff’s book, Fire and Fury – for which Bannon was one of the main sources – comes the claim that Jared Kushner’s father, Charles, lobbied, through his son and daughter-in-law, for the removal of the FBI Director because his own family’s business interests were being caught up in the inquiry.
