Bannon Vows to Bust Billionaire Republican Supporter Singer

October 30, 2017 James Heinsman In the News

According to a report from Axios, Steve Bannon, the ex-White House Chief Strategist and owner of ultra-right-wing Breitbart News, told President Donald Trump he was going to go “off the chain” to destroy Paul Singer. Singer is the head of hedge fund Elliot Management, and a major donor to Republican causes and candidates.

This news follows another report that a conservative website which is backed by Singer-The Washington Free Beacon- hired a company called Fusion GPS to look for negative information on a number of Republican candidates for president, including Trump.

Fusion GPS is the group that created the Russia dossier, the infamous document that says that Trump conspired with Russian officials to influence the results of the presidential election in 2016. According to the New York Times Hillary Clinton’s campaign also paid for part of the research that is included in the dossier.

Singer was also a major contributor to the “Never Trump” movement which gasped for air and then went out during the presidential campaign. Since the story in the NYTimes appeared, Breitbart News has been producing a steady stream of attacks on Singer, calling him a “globalist,” and also attacking politicians who have taken money from Singer.
