Bannon's new nonprofit:


Citizens of the American Republic website features Bannon at a fundraising event for We Build the Wall Inc., a nonprofit that supports Trumpís plan to beef up security at the southern border. Bannon and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach are members of its board.

Other clips on the website feature takes on economic nationalism, fighting China and stopping illegal immigration.

News article about Bannon hiring Cleta Mitchell to represent his nonprofit:


In the past, [Cleta] Mitchell has been openly skeptical of former Special Counsel Robert Muellerís investigation into the Trump campaignís potential collusion with Russian operatives during the 2016 election. In an op-ed published in the National Review the same month Bannon announced his new project, Mitchell questioned why Mueller wasnít focusing on Hillary Clinton potentially breaking campaign finance laws.

Andrew Breitbart died in 2012, well before Trump thought to run. Andrew supported the Tea Party to some degree.

Andrew also helped start up Huffington Post, but left when they took a leftward tilt into propoganda.

Breitbart (the site) went downhill after Andrew died.

Previously left-leaning in his politics, Breitbart changed his political views after experiencing "an epiphany" while watching the late 1991 confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, due to what he considered unfounded attacks on the part of liberals based on former employee Anita Hill's sexual harassment accusations.[17] Breitbart later described himself as "a Reagan conservative" with libertarian sympathies.[1]



The hypocricy of the left steered him in the correct direction.
