Author Michael Wolff on Wednesday took credit for Stephen Bannon's ouster from Breitbart News after the publication of his controversial book about the Trump White House, but said that he doesn't "feel good about" it.
Joining the hosts of "The View" on Wednesday, Michael Wolff opened up about his experience in the White House in regards to Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and others.

Bannon is quoted as saying the meeting was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic". He has not said exactly what he wants in return for keeping the program.
"Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books".
"Fire and Fury" is based on Wolff's series of interviews with those involved in the Trump administration, and McNamara is confident that it is "an accurate report on events of vital public importance".
