Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell Plotting the Downfall of Trump, they want the 2016 Election Declared Null and Void, Says Steve Bannon

Steve Bannon has spoken of the plot being hatched by senior and influential Republicans, headed by House speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell to get rid of Trump once and for all. Bannon says the goal of this plot is to get the 2016 election cancelled, declared null and void.

“The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election. That’s a brutal fact we have to face,” Bannon said, according to a transcript of an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes that will air Sunday. “I think Mitch McConnell, and to a degree, Paul Ryan. They do not want Donald Trump’s populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented. It’s very obvious.”

He listed an early meeting between McConnell and Trump during which McConnell told Trump to drop his “drain the swamp” messaging.

If Bannon is right in his reports and analysis, the Republican plot will send shockwaves through Washington and given the Trump-Russia collusion claims may actually have a solid chance of success.

Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have not commented on Steve Bannon’s claims but it is evident that duo have fallen out with Trump over the past few months and have disagreed with the President on key policy issues.

Steve Bannon, who was a senior Presidential advisor at the White House until he was ejected a few weeks ago following the deadly Charlottesville riots and Trump’s speech sympathizing with White Supremacists says that now he’s free to go to war since he’s no longer restricted by a White House job.

Steve Bannon has returned to Breitbart, an ultra right news network where he’s the editor and also tasked with pushing what they are calling “Trump’s agenda.”

Bannon who once said that Breitbart was a popular platform for alt-right was also at some point named the “power behind the throne” after the media noted how much influence he wielded at the White House.

There has also been speculation that Trump made the “both sides” speech after Charlottesville and hesitated to criticize the White Nationalists and neo-Nazis because he was under pressure from Steve Bannon.

Bannon’s latest claims will further drive a wedge between Ryan, McConnell and Trump and possibly cause lasting damage to the Republican Party.

Should the claims be true and the plot to nullify the 2016 election work, it is not yet known who then will become President or if there will then be a re-run or special election.
