CBS News reports:
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon praised House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, saying her handling of the impeachment inquiry is “actually quite brilliant.” “I disagree with her ideologically, but I think Nancy Pelosi is a master at political warfare. I think, strategically, what she has done from their perspective is actually quite brilliant,” Bannon said in an interview with CBS News.
But Bannon predicted the impeachment inquiry could actually be “quite healthy” for the president’s reelection prospects. He said Wednesday’s hearing before the House Intelligence Committee marks the unofficial start to the presidential campaign. “You’ve got to get maniacally focused on how you’re going to make this case to the American people, and it’s going to start tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.,” Bannon said.
