5…………> US Facing Civil War? Bannon vs Nadler


Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon predicted in an interview that 2019 will be” the most vitriolic year in American politics since before the Civil War,” suggesting during CBS’s “Face the Nation” that Democrats could possibly “weaponize” the findings from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe and use the investigations into Trump taking place in New York’s Southern District against the president, heating up political tensions throughout the year.

Bannon got a fast reply from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, who called President Trump the “greatest threat” to US democracy since “the Civil War,” promising numerous probes against the Trump administration in the future.

“Clearly […] there have been major abuses of power, major obstruction of justice, obvious violations of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution,” he said, without adding any details, stating that “all of these have to be looked at.

“I think 2019 will be the most vitriolic year in American politics since before the Civil War,” he said.

 “I think we’re in for a very nasty 2019”.
