. The interview could present danger to the Trump administration, as Bannon - lately spurned by longtime friends and allies - could be unpredictable in the aftermath of his break with the president.

In the book, Bannon is quoted as saying a pre-election meeting involving Trump's eldest son Donald Jr. and a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer was "treasonous".

Mr Trump and Mr Bannon have had a long and turbulent history.

"For Walsh", Mr. Wolff writes, "it was a daily process of managing an impossible task: nearly as soon as she received direction from one of the three men, she would be countermanded by one of another of them".

Trump had stayed in touch with the Breitbart head after he left the White House in August, including consulting him on last month's Alabama Senate race. Mr Bannon said then that his leaving was pre-planned, and that he could better support President Donald Trump at the helm of Breitbart. As if we didn't already know that greed trumped security.
