Bannon Threatened to Break Kushner in Half…This Memoir Is Going to Be Seismic
Former President Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner is getting ready to release a memoir. There are people all over Washington who are likely nervous about what might be in the pages. It’s already been made public that Kushner talks about Trump’s former Chief of Staff John Kelly shoving the president’s daughter, Ivanka.
One person who is ready to fight back against anything that might be said about him is former Trump adviser Stephen Bannon.
Bannon told Kushner, “I will break you in half,” according to a report by CNN.
Kushner’s book is titled, “Breaking History: A White House Memoir.” In it the author says to Bannon, “Steve, you gotta stop leaking on Gary,” referring to senior economic adviser Gary Cohn. Cohn had told Kushner that Bannon was spreading leaks about him.
“We’re trying to build a team here,” Kushner added.
Bannon apparently responded by saying, “Cohn’s the one leaking on me.” He also said that Kushner was “undermining” the agenda of the then-president, according to CNN.
“And if you go against me, I will break you in half. Don’t f— with me,’” Kushner describes Bannon saying.
Trump’s son-in-law said that it was a White House joke that Bannon’s duties included leaking to the press.
“Stephen Miller joked to Hope and me, ‘I have a plan to split up Steve Bannon’s extensive workload. Hope, you leak to Jonathan Swan at Axios. Jared, you call Mike Bender from the Wall Street Journal. I’ll call Jeremy Peters from the New York Times, and … we’re done,’” Kushner wrote.
Even though Bannon was a thorn in Kushner’s side, he surprised former President Trump by supporting Bannon’s pardon from Trump.
“Bannon single-handedly caused more problems for me than anyone else in my time in Washington. He probably leaked and lied about me more than everyone else combined. He played dirty and dragged me into the mud of the Russia investigation. But now that he was in trouble, I felt like helping him was the right thing to do,” Kushner said he told Trump, according to CNN.
“If you go against me, I will break you in half. Don't fuck with me,” Bannon once told Kushner in the Cabinet Room, according to his new memoir. https://t.co/3wRJ6K5n8K
