Drudge Report editor Matt Drudge on Wednesday ratcheted up his criticism of Stephen Bannon, calling him "schizophrenic" after explosive new comments from the the former White House chief strategist. 

"No wonder schizophrenic Steve BannonStephen (Steve) Kevin BannonBannon, ex-Trump officials talked Roger Stone, WikiLeaks with Mueller: report The Memo: Trump remark sparks debate over nationalism Census citizenship question will help voting rights enforcement MORE has been walking around with a small army of bodyguards," Drudge said in a one of his rare tweets, which are always deleted.

The Guardian on Wednesday published several quotes from Bannon that will appear in a new book from journalist Michael Wolff.

In the book, Bannon rips Donald Trump Jr.Donald (Don) John TrumpRobert De Niro says goodbye to ‘Jeff Sessions’ on ‘Saturday Night Live’ Election Countdown: Recount prospects grow in Florida | Abrams team to sue over absentee ballots | Dem wins pivotal Georgia House seat | A look at the uncalled races | Corporations spend big to beat ballot measures The Hill's 12:30 Report — Presented by the Counter Extremism Project — Ginsburg hospitalized after fall | 12 people killed in SoCal mass shooting | What Sessions's ouster means for Russia probe | Why Trump thinks he won the midterms MOREreferring to his meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer he'd been told could offer dirt on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonEx-Clinton aide: Hillary will run again in 2020 Ex-Facebook exec ousted from company sparked controversy with pro-Trump views: report Pelosi says she'll be Speaker ‘to protect the Affordable Care Act’ MORE as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic."

“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV," Bannon told Wolff, referring to the ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
Bannon also told Wolff the probe would focus on money laundering. 
“This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to fucking Trump goes right through Paul ManafortPaul John Manafort5 things to know about new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker New acting AG once criticized idea of special counsel Obama: GOP has ‘racked up enough indictments to field a football team’ MORE, Don Jr and Jared Kushner. … It’s as plain as a hair on your face," he said. 
This is not the first time Drudge has taken a jab at Bannon. 
Drudge criticized Bannon in November over his endorsement of Alabama Senate candidate Roy MooreRoy Stewart MooreParties start gaming out 2020 battleground Victimhood culture and traditional justice are on a collision course Flake says he's rooting for Democrat running against Steve King MORE, saying Moore's issues should be left "to the professionals" and calling Moore "Judge Whore."
Reports surfaced after Bannon returned to Breitbart News in August that he would accelerate a potential war with Drudge.
