The timing of a Bannon interview isn't tied to his recent falling out with Trump, exacerbated by comments attributed to him in the book, "Fire and Fury"by Michael Wolff
. Trump has torn into Bannon -- nicknaming him "Sloppy Steve" -- since excerpts emerged that said Bannon labeled as "treasonous" a 2016 meeting attended by Donald Trump Jr. and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner with Russian nationals. Bannon has since said he holds former campaign chairman Paul Manafort responsible for allowing the meeting -- held in an attempt to dig up dirt on Democrat Hillary Clinton
-- to go forward.
